Automotive racer Jeff Zwart is a legend -- both for his Pikes Peak Hill Climb prowess and for his abilities as an automotive photographer and commercial director. While he's normally known for driving fast cars, he also owns this 1993 Land Rover Defender 110 -- and now it's for sale.

Although you might balk at this Defender's $129,990 asking price, that figure isn't too much higher than those of most other 1993 Defenders -- something we'll cover in a minute. More importantly, this one has low mileage (just 58,100 miles total), and it has another benefit: It's been owned solely by Zwart since new in 1993. Its Carfax report also shows it's been largely driven in the salt-free climates of Colorado and Southern California -- save for a trip as a support vehicle on the Panama to Alaska rally.

Aside from the Jeff Zwart history, why exactly is this Defender so valuable? The 1993 Defender is the most sought-after Land Rover of all time, as only 535 total examples were brought to North America -- 500 for the U.S., 25 for Canada, and 10 in an early production run set aside for Land Rover North America to use as fleet vehicles. Furthermore, the 1993 model year was the only year the Defender was offered stateside in its 4-door "110" configuration, with later Defender models available only in 2-door guise.

While most Defender 110 models sell for between $80,000 and $110,000, depending on condition, this model's low miles, its one-owner past and its ownership history could easily give it a bump for shoppers interested in an especially exciting piece of SUV history. If you're interested, it's located in Costa Mesa, California, and it's offered by a private seller -- likely an associate of Zwart's.
