The latest analysis from automotive valuation experts CAP showcases a considerable uplift in the residual value of the Chelsea Truck Company Land Rover Defender ‘The End’ Edition, when compared to the standard vehicle, according to the independent vehicle valuation authority CAP.

Making an appearance for the first time, the uplift for the ‘End Edition’ is a staggering 40% above the CAP Black Book value of the standard Defender model on which it is based.

CAP Black Book is used as the industry benchmark for vehicle value and comprehensive valuation data for the majority of cars on the market.


Chief Designer, Afzal Kahn, believes the figures are ample proof, vehicles adorned with the Chelsea Truck Company and Project Kahn badge are much sought after, in the UK and beyond.
