Gritzinger (2004) recognized the Range Stormer as an unusually "sporty" vehicle in the context of Land Rover's history, thanks to a sharply sloped windshield and A-pillars, a low roof, hood vents, and the "scissor"-style nature of the doors. Other notable features of the Range Stormer include a "clamshell" hood.
A production version of the Range Stormer was planned for release in 2005 as a 2006 model, when it would become a four-door, "but retain much of the athletic appearance of the concept". This vehicle would become the Range Rover Sport.
West Coast Customs of Corona, CA created a custom replica of the Stormer for Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoom, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chief of the Dubai Executive Council, on the occasion of opening West Coast Customs Dubai. After receiving The Stormer, Sheikh Hamdan gave the car to his close friend, Ahmad Bin Dalmook who currently uses It. The car is registered under the Dubai Traffic And Road Authority and its number plate is C 55 Dubai. The Range Stormer was also featured in the game Gran Turismo 4, Gran Turismo PSP, Gran Turismo 5 and Ford Land Rover Off Road.
The vehicle is now displayed at the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon, Warwickshire, UK
