Export Sales.

Perhaps LR or a dealer might be able to answer this.

Is it possible to buy a new LR for export and never register it in the U.K.?

Guernsey 2016 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 Landmark LE Auto Santorini BlackDiscovery 4

Their used to be a section on the Landrover site covering personal exports, but having a quick look now, does not seem to be there anymore. From memory you could do this for vehicle ordered was not to a EU country. It was possible for Guernsey and Jersey residents to arrange their own import direct from factory.

One can buy a vehicle in UK and export it without registering, but are you after a LHD or other none UK spec. when it is more difficult, I know someone who wanted a LHD one as he did a lot of driving abroad and ended up ordering in the Netherlands as it was easier.

Usually it’s called expat, diplomat and military sales.

LR has at least a page https://www.landrover.com/fleet-and-busine...sales.html that might help you.

Actually it won’t since you’re most likely not a member of their highly exclusive list.

Land Rover Tourist and Diplomatic Sales Might help you, details can be found here: https://www.landrover.co.uk/fleet-and-busi...sales.html

TBH, they make it - at least on paper - really hard to buy anything except via the retail channel unlike Volvo who has something called expat sales and they’ll pretty much sell to anybody with the money and either let you receive the car at the factory or at the destination or something in between.. https://www.volvocars.com/diplomat/expat/t...at-program Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

I can vouch for Volvo expat sales working very well.

Do Guava still have a department specialising in this? Or was it a different dealer?

Ireland 2006 Discovery 3 TDV6 Commercial Manual Zambezi SilverDiscovery 3

In the ‘80s a friend of my fathers full time job was, unloading lorry loads of ford cars from the ferry in Cork and driving the load to catch the ferry in Dublin back to the UK that evening. There was a few hundred pounds of a saving to the UK purchaser to buy an exported car.
