The Camel Trophy was the Olympics of off-roading and for 17 years bright Sandglow Land Rovers were the showcase of this event and considered the King of the Safari. In celebration of this gruelling off-road adventure we are creating our version of an Iconic Camel Trophy but with a 3 Door D110 variation with a soft top. This Artisan Collection by Helderburg build is a one of a kind design that has never been done before by anyone! It’s 1 of 1 design and will never be repeated.
This Artisan Collection Defender is not only capable for off-roading but is equally comfortable and capable for in-town, highway or week long vacations.
We can assure you the original Sandglow Camel Defenders and Range Rovers didn’t have a full Connolly Leather Interior and 100% Wool Carpeting but this Artisan Collection Defender by Helderburg will set the bar for what many individuals consider the World’s Finest designed and built Defender aka Work of Art on Wheels by Helderburg.
Seating for 10 with 2 bucket seats in the front and center facing benches in rear with room for 8 adults. It’s worth repeating we are doing an exclusive interior with Connolly Leather England which has supplied the leather for Rolls Royce, Bentley and Ferrari to mention a few. The carpet is an authentic German Wool short weave with Connolly leather binding.
The drivetrain will be a Turbo Diesel that will average 28-32 mpg and a soft clutch with a 5 speed manual transmission will keep it enjoyable for several years.
The Artisan Collection Defenders designed by Paul Potratz are a complete full nut and bolt restoration with a ground up new engine, transfer case, transmission, differentials…everything is new and built better than original.
