Trade Link Vehicle, MOT till July 2024, manufactured new in 2008, the Defender offered was supplied through the Land Rover Vehicle Operations at Gaydon and was registered new to the Land Rover Company Fleet. Reputedly the late Queen’s favourite marque, Land Rovers have long been synonymous with the monarchy and their residencies, with this example being one such vehicle, having spent just over its first year on the Sandringham Estate. Covering minimal mileage while there, ‘BN58 RWL’ had its first service completed by Harwoods Land Rover upon leaving the estate in 2010 at only 679 miles. Subsequently sold through Harwoods Land Rover to the only private keeper since Royal employment, said keeper was informed by the dealer at the time of purchase of the Land Rovers past at Sandringham.
Rare 2.4 Engine.
Offered now having covered under 42,000 miles from new, the Land Rover is finished in the attractive and lesser-seen hue of Galway Green with a Black cloth-trimmed cabin. Accompanied by a history file that includes numerous previous MOTs, the service book which illustrates five services with most of them completed by main dealers, a current V5C document, and a no advisory MOT certificate until July 2024. Having spent just over its first year at Sandringham, it is not unlikely that the Land Rover ferried Royalty around the estate during its time there and thus is a very interesting offering.
