CAP HPI's Mark Bulmer said: This iconic 4x4 is already highly sought after but it’s popularity as an export vehicle means models are in short supply thereby strengthening values. With prices starting from around £5,000 up to £75,000, buyers still have a good selection of cars to choose from with vehicles from £10- £15,000 a popular price point.

We say: Not just an icon, but an investment. With a replacement still not ready to go, Defender values are rocketing. Just be aware that although it's a fantastic 4x4, it's not much of a car. Motorway journeys are torture and going around corners is like piloting a stricken ocean liner. Oh, and changing gear makes stirring gravel look like child's play. We still want one though.
