2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

We carry loads of them containerised to India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Kenya, Mauritius, Tanzania (I visited the official LR dealership in Dar 5 years ago, I’ve never seen so many RRS and Evoques in a dealership compound, new or used) Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola and Namibia. Cars with oil and fuel in them are classed as hazardous cargo so I get all the packing info for every single one. Most of the used ones originate from the UK to the former colonies where they still drive on the left, the places where they drive on the right seem to get a lot of ex French and German cars. Fullfats are harder to get into a container without damage, same with D3/D4 and Freelander 2- they are too wide or too high. I once posted a photo here of a line up of RRS’s in in the import compound in the port of Port Klang, Malaysia most still on their UK plates. 2020 Pangea Green 1st Edition D240 New Defender 110 is here and loving it

I have been in Luanda quite a few times, and the amount of high spec cars,,, including RRS always amazes me, especially when you see the roads! , you would be better off with a tractor.

I lived there for 3 years and helped a colleague keep his P38 on the road by hand carrying all sorts of things in my suitcase on trips back from the UK, as you say there's an insane number of lovely motors there given the traffic and the roads, including one of the owners of my company whose collection contained everything from a Murcielago to a London taxi!
