This Freelander 1 is possibly the oldest surviving 3-door prototype and later it was 'dressed-up' to promote the Land Rover Fifty 50 Challenge. This challenge involved three Freelanders together with a 110 support vehicle that set out to drive to fifty countries in fifty days to celebrate Land Rover's 50th anniversary and to raise money for charity.
This vehicle is almost to final production standard with only a few minor differences: the body shell is slightly different, trim is pre-production smooth finish and different tyres.
Most of the vehicle’s work was static display. The 'K' plate is older than the vehicle as reflects the standard practice of registering prototype and pre-production models with older registrations as part of the 'disguise'.
