Land Rover Discovery M3 powered Rally Car with full MSA log book and meets Comp Safari spec.

This vehicle took me 5 years to build out of all new parts. I have hundreds of pictures of the build which I am happy to email to any prospective buyer upon request. This is a genuine sale as I lost my left leg due to a motorcycle accident on 28 Feb 2017 and can no longer drive or race the vehicle.

The car is in excellent condition with very few rallying marks.

The car has competed in stage rallies and has finished at the sharp end on numerous occassions embarrassing many people with WRC spec cars! The car is quite famous in Landrover and rallying circles due to a viral video (over 10 million views and 2 million shares on facebook) and its ability to look like a landrover but go like a WRC car.

I built the vehicle to be competitive in both rallying and comp safari racing so thus it is built with great strength and reliability in mind. To that end it has never let me down and requires little or no servicing between events. I would happily drive it to Scotland, do an event, and then drive it back home. All of the components are of the best quality that I could lay my hands on at the time of building hence the reliability and strength. It has been a labour of love and I am sad to see it go.
