Winner of Emirates Classic Cars Festival Downtown Dubai Custom 4X4
Nostalgia Classic Cars proudly presents one of the rarest versions of the world’s most beloved off-roader, the 1952 Land Rover Minerva. From 1952 to 1956, the Land Rover was built by Belgium’s most famous automotive company Minerva, both in 80” and 86” versions. These Belgian Land Rovers had a distinctive front end which set them apart from British Series I models, and were powered by 2.0 liter inline four petrol engines. Most Minerva-built Land Rovers ended up as military service vehicles, with some given to Belgian police and gendarmerie forces, and just a few were sold to civilians.
This 1952 Land Rover Minerva is a restored 80” LHD example, with manual transmission and 46,228 km showing on the odometer, and it’s a winner of Emirates Classic Cars Festival Downtown Dubai Custom 4X4. It is finished in olive green with beige cloth top, the most distinctive military-spec colors, and it retained all Minerva-specific details such as sloping front fenders and a smaller front grille with the Minerva badge. The interior features two seats in the front and bench seating in the rear, and all seats are refurbished in black leather. Whether you are a collector of rare vehicles, or an enthusiast who wants to tackle the trails, stop by our showroom in Dubai and prepare yourself to be amazed to see this historic masterpiece of a car.
