A unique Land Rover Defender is up for auction on Collecting Cars. The Land Rover Defender is none other than one of two genuine ex-Camel Trophy vehicles built by the Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team for the 1998 Tierra Del Fuego Camel Trophy event.
Powered by a 2.5-liter 300tdi turbodiesel inline-four, the 1998 Camel Trophy off-roader is matched with a five-speed manual transmission and has twin fuel tanks, Mantec steering and fuel tank guards, a Warn winch, a Brownchurch bull bar, Hella spotlights, a twin battery setup, a Safety Devices internal roll bard and external roll cage, and Michelin XZL tires.
Easily distinguishable by its yellow paint job and period-correct decals, this Defender has been treated to a full refurbishment. Reading 162,998 miles on the odometer, the auction for this rare Defender 110 Camel Trophy ends tomorrow with the current bid at £29,000 GBP (approximately $41,000 USD). Head over to Collecting Cars for further details.
