    To be accurate this was what every jealous persons with a fiat uno was saying he he….. Non the less the design was from Tom Tjaarda that was also at the head of the design department for Fiat for couple of years. The Lancia Thema /Saab were design by him as well as the development of the Uno. This is a site were you can check his creations:

    I think that this particular car was very advance for the era “1984” and the first, to use car like future, almost 20 years before VW, Porsche, Land Rover, Ford or Chevrolet with their respective SUV .The second version of the Range “1994” it is virtually a copy.
    Thanks for the comment

    a-ham... nope, the p38 is a design much advanced IMHO, and although it does borrow slightly from tjaarda's design, I think that the inspiration comes much more from the classics...

    are these things still manufactured? how is the suspension? I couldnt find info and very little interior pics...

    Ciao Roy,
    Hey I had a Range classic in 86 4door FI. I see that you have a 94 Model year.Well "advanced" it is a relative word but .... My site it is a good source of pictures of the interior and info on the parts etc. but unfortunately I have a ridiculous daily bandwidth.

    Any way here are some pictures.

    The first Pic. is a laforza 4.9 V8 supercharged (335hp) 1998
    the second is a 1986 2.5 V6 version interior.
    number 3 it is the IVECO 4x4 4ton. Same frame and differentials and suspension
    number 4 is a 89 5.0V8 red Laforza
    5) a 98 model year with the 4.9 V8
