Not a Defender but am I missing something here???

Um why in the world would this Landcruiser be priced this high? I have heard of a Icon but really who would pay this kind of money? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...2BSI%26otn%3D2

These are brand spanking new reproductions (hand made) of the original truck with all upgraded bells and whistles.

I doubt it is going to fetch that kinda jack however. I have seen them sell for a pretty high price on ParkCity4X4.com

i love how after spending $157,000 on a truck they are going to charge you another $179 in "dealer documentary fee." This guy need a crash course in luxury good marketing.

Icon is made by hand at TLC but that price is insane. But there is someone who will buy it.
There present inventory at TLC has one for sale @ 135,000 and another (Baja edition) @ 168,000!

I mean it is very cool. All I am saying is that I think I could find better ways to invest that kind of money.

I wonder how much ECR would charge to build a "custom" Defender from scratch? I bet it wouldnt be any less than 100k

These were special made and completley rebuilt to new condition. If you google the ICON name you will come up with some info. Kind of neat but who is paying that!!!!! At least they have passion for the vehicle.

$1.3mm is an assload of money for a watch! But at least with the watch you would normally expect an increase on your investment! If you bought the Jeep it is doubtful that your ROI would even come close to that of the watch?

But I am sure the truck would be pretty damn fun to play with, while the watch......Well I have enough watches.
