The most expensive new Land Rover in Australia is the Range Rover SVAutobiography LWB supercharged V8 petrol which lists at $403,670 and boasts 405kW of power. A high percentage of that cost, however, is down to luxury-car tax and other import duties, and the Australian government loves to slug car lovers. That said, countries such as Singapore which have extortionate fees and taxes just for the privilege of buying a car would have higher Land Rover and Range Rover prices.

However, my money for the world’s most expensive Landie would be on the original Land Rover prototype used to develop the original off-roader way back in 1947. This protype actually featured a central driving position and had the nick-name the Centre Steer as a result. Opinions differ on whether it still exists as some say it was broken up as production started in 1948 while others surmise that it could be hidden in storage somewhere in the UK. If it does exist, it would surely be the most valuable Land Rover in the world.

Beyond that, I’d say another prototype named Huey (named for its registration number HUE 166) from 1948 would be a close runner-up in value terms. Huey now resides at Land Rover’s Classic workshop in Coventry in the UK.
