Auction update: Land Rover Defender SVX SPECTRE sells for €115,000

16 April, 2019

A 2015 Land Rover Defender SVX used in the James Bond film SPECTRE was sold for €115,000 ($130,000 / £100,000) at the RM Sotheby's Auction in Essen, Germany on Thursday 11 April 2019.

The car was offered without reserve, and fetched less than the expected price of €175.000 - €225.000.

The Land Rover Defender with chassis nr SALLDHSP8FA462376 is one of just 10 originals built, of which eight are currently in private ownership. This particular Land Rover was damaged during filming for the Austrian mountaintop chase scene.

Though fully functional, the car is unsuitable to be driven on the road, but is preserved exactly as the moment filming stopped.

That's probably the main reason that the price didn't make the estimated price and is much lower than the £325,000 (€370,000 / $430,000) that Gordon Ramsey paid last year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed auction for another Land Rover Defender SVX also used in SPECTRE: that particular car was in much better condition and can actually be driven.
