Tempting. Wonder how maintenance would be with all the custom parts

Unless I missed something the story seems a bit odd. A Saudi Prince rebuilds a 1984 Defender in the UK when he could have just bought and customized a new Defender?

My scam sensors are tingling. Reads like someone who can speak and right English properly fine tuned the classic Nigerian scam.(or wherever the scams come from)

x2, interesting that he was able to find a VIN plate from an '84 Rover that was 11111111111111111



WHY DO PEOPLE INSIST ON USING ALL CAPS IN AUCTION DESCRIPTION PAGES?! Oh wait, you used a green font? Nevermind, now I can take you seriously.

X2 on the all caps giant font, just like "MR I'M A SPINE DOCTOR IN NY"

Description is way fishy, he's been on ebay for 12 days, and bought a Defender starter and a steering wheel for a Mini, and now wants to sell a high value vehicle - hello red flag!

Here's the website for the mythical Bellargio that built it: http://www.racecar.co.uk/bellargio/

Also, the only place it mentions 1984 is in the listing, no mention of the title in the description. If you were to buy this, imagine finding out that the 1984 was a typo, or misleading....

seats aren't custom - at least not the fronts - they're just the Recaro Ergomed Es. Nice for sure, but not totally custom as represented...

Judging from the location pics I'd stay its a stolen vehicle.

Similar Rovers with odd stories have been for sale on ebay uk over the past few years, usually the seller id changed, the common thread was Ballargio

While "BONITO GREY" might indeed mean beautiful grey in spanish, I feel sure he meant to say Bonatti Grey which is a beautiful color for a 110.

Another case of wondering if one knows what one intends to sell....
