Superbly presented, low ownership, just 15,623 miles and an interesting provenance.


The very special Defender 110 County on offer here is a low mileage, 15,623 (at the time of cataloguing) , low owner example presenting in truly fantastic condition. Combined with the fact that this very car was specified and first used by the late HRH The Duke of Edinburgh makes this a unique opportunity.

All the Duke’s Land Rovers were built to his individual spec and this is no exception. It's finished in Keswick Green with a black cloth interior, fitted with Land Rover seat covers and specified with heated seats, a/c, front and rear heated screens and alloy wheels (original spare unused).

The car's current owner enjoys a significant private collection of special motor vehicles, all maintained and presented to an exceptional standard, as is evident when looking at this gleaming Defender which bares testimony to the care that has recently been lavished upon it. We understand that he purchased the car from the previous owner who is the son of our Late Queen's chauffeur.

Accompanying the car is a good history file containing correspondence from George Hassall - Director, Royal and Diplomatic Affairs at Jaguar Land Rover to David Key, Head Chauffeur to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh which relates to its initial use by The Duke, along with its book pack, service book, MOTs and service receipts, etc. Whilst in the Duke’s possession, it's believed to have been assigned his personal registration, OXR 2.

Quite simply, this Defender needs to be seen in person to really appreciate it and we encourage all interested parties to come and view it at Race Retro for themselves. Boasting an enviable combination of Royal provenance, an individual specification, low mileage and fantastic condition, this seems to tick all of the boxes for any serious collector of significant British vehicles.
