The Appeal

No doubt one of the most easily identifiable vehicles on today’s roads, the Defender continually proves its merit both on, and off the road. The platform never fails to impress across a wide range of purposes, including off-road adventuring, intensive workhorse duties, dependable commuting, and even as the base for camper/overland projects. 

If you’re in the market for one of these trusty Land Rovers, this particular 90 is a fantastic candidate to select. The vehicle has covered only a mere 48k across a total of two keepers, receiving plenty of care, and maintenance along the way. No doubt as a result of its excellent maintenance and caring ownership, this Defender now offers the next lucky keeper fault-free performance, and a very respectable finish, both inside and out.

With a recent service, fresh Dinatrol treatment and a brand new set of tyres under its belt, this Defender is certainly ready to impress.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
