Go anywhere with this extreme collection of Land Rover Bowler Off-Roaders

RM Sotheby’s are to offer a collection of special Bowlers owned by former company director Richard Hayward in their Paris auction on 13 February. Which one would you grab the keys to?

After being bought out by Jaguar Land Rover in December 2019 Bowler Motorsport has gone from strength to strength. This collection of seven vehicles represents some of the key moments of Bowler’s history from the last ten years. The Spectre Land Rover Defender SVX needs no introduction, this car was built to the same specification as the Bond cars. Personnel from Bowler consulted on the build of the film cars, so this is no replica. The two CSP prototypes represent Bowler’s own platform housing the Jaguar 5-litre supercharged V8, serious off-road power!

The 2015 Pennine V6 110 Prototype features the F-Type’s Supercharged V6 engine and will reportedly hit 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds, at €75,000-€100,000 that is a lot of fun to be had if you can find the space to really stretch its legs! Perhaps Saudi Arabia’s Empty Quarter is calling? Scene of the recent Dakar rally-raid events. Finally, two tastefully modernised Land Rovers and the original Defender Challenge car round out the collection. Our pick would be the V8 supercharged CSP Prototype “P1” that is still eligible for some motorsport events. Take a look at the full auction listings for RM Sotheby’s Paris sale in the Classic Driver Market.
