Yesterday this unique Defender went under the hammer at Bonhams, with bidding starting at 20k it soon rose to 200k and sold for 400,000k to an overseas buyer.
The build which was revealed back in August was to celebrate the iconic off-roader’s last year in production, all proceeds are going to two of Land Rover’s charities – the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Born Free Foundation.
Last summer, Land Rover invited celebrities, including adventurers Bear Grylls, Monty Halls and ex servicemen to contribute in building the one of a kind Defender over ten days at the Solihull plant.
Features designed especially for the car include a map of Red Wharf Bay embossed into its seats where the design for the first Land Rover was drawn in the sand.
A notable 2,000,000 badge is added to the rear to confirm the standing of the truck and a build plate is fitted with the signatures of all those celebrities who contributed to the project.
The Defender’s number plate, S90 HUE, is paying homage to the first pre-production Land Rover, which received the designation HUE 166.
