We are offering this 1991 Land Rover Discovery Series 1, the winning Turkish team entry finished in Sandglow Yellow with a beige cloth interior on behalf of our client so being sold as you see and inspect it with no further workshop, service work or warranty included in the sale. This Discovery was commissioned by Land Rover Special Vehicles to compete in the 1991 Tanzania, Brunai. It is a Euro-spec, left-hand drive truck. Said to be imported shortly after the conclusion of the 1992 event, it’s equipped with a metric instrument cluster, and the odometer shows about 125,108 kilometers, which represents approximately 77,738 miles. The Discovery was heavily modified at Land Rover’s Special Installations division, and features Hella off-road lighting, a Brownchurch front bumper and push bar, a Warn winch, Mantec snorkel, a roof rack with heavy-duty springs and shocks, upgraded half-shafts, skid plates, and much more as detailed below. The inaugural Camel Trophy event kicked off in 1980 deep in the jungles of Brazil, and featured a trio of German teams driving South American-built Jeeps. Over the next 18 years however, Land Rover vehicles were exclusively used for the event, with Discoveries making an appearance for eight of those. They competed in harsh and unforgiving environments including deserts, jungles, and tundra, covering vast distances with little more than the skill and wit of their drivers and what they carried onboard for the duration of the journey. It has remained in private ownership for many years with the replacement of original 200TDi engine and 5 speed manual gearbox with a 4.6 V8 petrol and automatic gearbox. A pair of front bucket seats were also added. Other than this it remains as you can see pretty original. Please enquire for further help and advise or appointment to visit to inspect it. £ P O A
