For Sale: 2008 Land Rover Defender in Aiken, South Carolina

Vehicle Description

The Bowler is stored in our Aiken, SC climate controlled warehouse. We do not consign vehicles. The inventory shown is 100% owned, maintained, and driven by us here at Car Cave USA. For more pictures and information please visit www.carcaveusa.com.A Bowler was featured on Top Gear https://www.topgear.com/videos/top-gear-tv/richard-hammond-drives-bowler-wildcat-series-2-episode-1. Let's just say Richard Hammond was more than impressed. The Bowler Tomcat shown here has never been used for competition. We purchased this out of storage in Genappe, Belgium where it had sat 90% assembled for an unknown amount of time. Then proceeded to go through the lengthy (and documented) process of legally importing this Bowler to the United States. Our intention was to race this 2008 Bowler Tomcat as a competition vehicle in the straight axle Legends class. Covid occured and all racing was cancelled. The Bowler was properly built by Tomcat Motorsports in the UK using a Land Rover supplied new old stock frame. We spoke with the Director of Tomcat, Paul Williamson, who verified the chassis number 100183 was built in February 2008 by his workshop. A Turner Engineering V8 was sourced and installed in this chassis. Anybody who knows Rover V8's knows Turner Engineering builds some of the best (expensive) engines. No expense was spared when putting this build together.
