I am reluctantly offering for sale my very special 1993 Land Rover Defender 90SV 200tdi. If your not aware of the 90SV special edition, it was produced in 1992/93 by Land Rover Special Vehicles Operations dept and only 90 were ever made. It marked the beginning of the 'fun/lifestyle' Defenders.

Currently there are only 37 90SV's licensed and 20 registered as SORN by the DVLA and since 2008 i am only aware of 9 that have been up for sale.

I purchased this one from a millionaire who had owned it for 14years. It was just left in his garage and did less than 1000miles/yr. This is evidenced by a VOSA history check.

The bodywork as you can see from the pictures is incredibly straight with no dents. The special metallic paint is called Caprice green and was only ever used on the 90SV. The paintwork is generally very good although upon closer inspection the paint on the wing tops is a little flat with a bit of bubbling in places and there is a single scratch on the nearside. There are some other paint bubbles dotted around the door and a little oxydisation on the passenger door.

The doors are all solid and in great condition. The rear door opens sideways and has a swing away spare wheel carrier.

The chassis is in excellent condition and has two areas that were welded at the last MOT. The rear crossmember is excellent with no corrosion and the bulkhead is solid.

The 90SV comes with side steps and A frame as standard.

I have just replaced the roof at a cost of £1100. The number plate remains on the Defender.

Inside it has rubber matting in the front and rear. It was the first Defender to have the internal bulkhead replaced with a bar and comes with cloth seats in the front, centre cubby box and two bench seats in the rear. It also has an immobiliser. 

It has 5 almost new BF Goodrich A/T tyres on original Freestyle alloys.

The Defender drives absolutely perfectly. The gearbox, clutch and steering are all very stiff and feel like new. I have no doubt whatsoever that the mileage is correct.

The blowers are currently working, they keep blowing a fuse so will get that looked at. The heater works fine.

It has a long MOT until December 2015.

The Defender is available to view near Dorking, Surrey. 20 mins from jcn 8 or 9 M25.

Please only serious buyers/collectors. I know exactly how much the last 9 of these sold for going back 7yrs so please no silly offers.

This is being re-listed as the previous buyer could not raise the funds.. please only bid if you have the funds available.

These are the rarest Defender ever made by Land Rover, the value will only ever go up and you wont find another for sale anywhere in the world!
