The limited edition Range Rover CSK is named after Charles
Spencer King, the man who designed the original two-door Range
Rover over 20 years ago. The CSK was intended primarily to
publicise the new anti-roll suspension and was promoted as a
sportier Range Rover. Most elements of the CSK's specification were
drawn from the four-door Vogue SE or from US-market models. Each
car has an individually numbered plaque on the radio panel
confirming its exclusivity, discreetly bearing his insignia and, in
1990, cost £28,995 (manual). For an automatic you had to pay
£30,319.32. The Range Rover CSK features a number of modifications
improving both performance and passenger comfort. It's the fastest
production Range Rover ever built at that time with the proven and
a re-chipped version of the 3.9 litre, V8 engine developing 185bhp.
The increase in performance is complemented by improved handling at
high speeds. Land Rover UK had introduced front and rear anti-roll
bars and sports dampers to give a smoother, more comfortable ride
for on-road handling. The roll stiffness is increased by 25% over
the standard production model. This all gives remarkably positive
and responsive driving. The CSK is available with a choice of
five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic transmission.
Standard equipment includes a six-speaker security coded stereo
system, air-conditioning, central locking and electrically operated
tilt/slide sunroof, electric windows and heated door mirrors. Also
standard is the world's most advanced four-wheel drive ABS braking
system which prevents wheel-lock in the worst conditions on any
combination of surfaces.

Number 182 of just 200 ever produced, this genuine example has
benefitted from five former keepers and has been cared for in
private collections. Supplied new to Petluma Ltd. of Richmond by
Land Rover Sturges in September 1991, it is offered for sale with
its original sales brochure, several old MoT test certificates and
a current MoT test certificate valid until October 2017. J428 LNR
benefits from a comprehensive service history with 18 records; the
last service was done at 124,000 miles. With some examples of the
desirable CSK offered in the region of £60,000, this car represents
a fantastic opportunity to purchase a highly collectible and
desirable example.
