And you can't even drive it to the school gateson the road... Or, for that matter, put Tarquin in the back seat, given the front belts are now anchored in the middle of it.

Although given it's film history it's arguably better value for money than a lot of pimped Defenders - collectors will pay crazy money for some memorabilia.

I think a few of us would be quite happy to argue that point.

 

I would be tempted to ask how they come to that conclusion

There are usually quite a few replicas going about. I'm never sure what the rope is for - it looks like it would just rub the paintwork and then be a nightmare to handle when it's soaking wet and heavy.

It's got a new mot. so you should be able to. But I won't be buying it.

Harry Metcalfe had one, he sold it a while back, and it now sits ruined at the top of a mountain in Switzerland.

Was definitely off road only.

I remember Harry’s. Even with the massive farm it wasn’t worth keeping as it wasn’t usable.

I also heard all of the Spectres weren't road legal, but never heard why - does anyone know? Type approval with those tyres perhaps?

It would be interesting to see why these are viewed/labelled as the ultimate Defender, but I suspect I'd get depressed.

 

Those copies don't expressely say they're copies/replicas anywhere on the advert that I saw. Labelling it as a Spectre Edition is flat out implying it's something it isn't in my view. I know there's some obvious bits that a movie car wouldn't have, but if you were looking at it at face value of what they're calling it.... dodgy.
