The final Land Rover Defender 110 Adventure ever produced is set to break the world record public price for the model, and it is now live for bids on the market-leading Collecting Cars auction platform.
The global automotive marketplace already holds world record results for three other Defender variants; achieving £146,000 for a Works V8 70th Edition, £70,000 for a Defender 90 Heritage, and £47,500 a Landmark Edition vehicle. This pristine Defender 110 Adventure with just 52 miles on the odometer is expected to exceed £80,000.
One of just 600 examples built, this highly collectible 2016 Defender is in showroom condition with no blemishes to the Phoenix Orange exterior and a pristine interior with no wear or discolouration.
Powered by a 2.2L turbo diesel which sends 120hp through a six-speed manual, this legendary all-terrain vehicle also features the unique extras of the Adventure model, including the LED projector headlamps, leather seats, a snorkel, roof rack, rear ladder, 16” diamond-cut alloy wheels and heavy-duty underbody protection.
A host of mod cons come fitted as standard, including air conditioning, diff locks, MP3 and mobile phone compatibility, central locking, and a sophisticated traction control system.
Edward Lovett, founder of Collecting Cars, said:
“The Land Rover Defender is one of the great automotive icons. You can buy a usable classic for £10,000 or acquire one of the rarest V8 factory models for more than £100,000. This 110 Adventure is the very last of just 600 built, remains in as-new condition, and is bound to attract significant interest from our global audience of collectors.”

Compared to traditional car auctions, Collecting Cars offers significantly better value for sellers and buyers alike. For sellers, the detailed photographic presentation and professional descriptions mean their car is showcased in the best possible way, and is marketed to a huge captive audience of passionate enthusiasts. Furthermore, there is no listing fee, and they receive 100% of the hammer price.
For buyers, the premium on auction lots is levied at just 5% + VAT – substantially lower than traditional auction houses, which typically charge 12% or more – and is capped at £6,000. On hammer prices above £100,000 this means that the buyer’s premium is even less than 6%.
