Germany's final Land Rover Defender goes under the hammer for charity
Jaguar Land Rover
One of the last built Land Rover Defender Heritage models goes under the hammer in Germany next month.
The Defender 90 Heritage will be the prize for one of 25
lucky bidders participating in this private sale hosted by Sotheby’s Hamburg. The
price is expected to exceed €50,000 with all the proceeds going to a children’s
home in Kenya.
Originally won as part of a Land Rover Germany competition
called ‘Defender Moments’, which engaged owners and lovers of the vehicle to
share their pictures and memories. This last Defender 90 from Germany’s
allocation went to Oliver Drewes from Lower Saxony who sent in a picture of a
Defender being used as bus transportation in Africa.
Now this 2016 built Land Rover Defender in classic Grasmere
Green can help in Africa much like many of its siblings have, with all proceeds
being donated to the Furaha Phoenix Children’s Home near Mombasa, Kenya.
Home to more than 50 street and orphan children, the charity
supports these kids by giving them an education and hope of a future. Some of
the money donated from the auction will go towards the purchase of a school bus
to support the activities that the Furaha Phoenix home organise.
