Welcome to LR Motors™

On January 29th 2016 Land Rover ceased production of the vehicle we all loved, the Defender. Here in Yorkshire, LR Motors is committed to keeping the Defender dream alive. Since our birth, we've sold and worked on over 600 Defender and Series vehicles, with a worldwide customer base from New Zealand to Canada. We also specialise in USA & Canada exportable Land Rover®. Owning a Defender should always be a pleasurable experience. Our aim is to make the search for your next Defender as easy as possible. We have a large number of parts and certainly know our way around Defender, make sure you check out our webstore. Already have a Defender? Why not speak to us about our Custom Works offering, where we can improve the look and feel of your Defender.

Looking for something a little bit different? LR Classic offers full restorations to limited edition Land Rovers of bygone times, focusing on every detail to ensure the vehicle is the epitome of each rare model we meticulously rebuild. Our commitment to giving every vehicle a new lease of life is built upon with our small annual output of vehicles, meaning our team has more time to research, develop and restore these historic vehicles to their former immaculate glory. The average modern vehicle has a lifespan of just 13 years before it is scrapped. With LR Motors' dedication to ensuring we live in an environmentally friendly world, we are giving the average 20-40 year old Land Rover a new lease of life in order to provide it with a further 20-40 years of use. We source our parts and items as locally as possible, sometimes just 200 yards around the corner, meaning there are fewer shipment miles: a very different story for brand-new vehicles, commonly assembled overseas. LR Classic only produces around two to three vehicles per annum, ranging from pre-production Series I to 50th Anniversary Defender 90



In 2019 we became a franchised retailer for CAN-AM® off road & SEA-DOO® personal watercraft. We can now offer the full range of ATV and SSV vehicles as well as the amazing range of personal watercraft SEA-DOO® offer.

About LR Motors

LR Motors is an independent company dedicated to the Land Rover Defender, selling, sourcing, servicing, repairing and supplying parts for this iconic vehicle. Founded in 2015, in response to a gap in the market for a company that caters purely for the Defender, LR Motors is owned and managed by a team whose experience and passion for the vehicle are second to none. Our team is crucial to LR Motors’ success – every employee has been hand-picked for their dedication to the Defender and because they are the very best at what they do.

Between them, the team boasts more than 100 years’ knowledge and experience. Everyone from the sales team to the mechanics is every bit as passionate about the Defender as the owners themselves. Our aim is to offer an enhanced service to our customers. All our vehicles have a protection package that includes a painted front bumper, rear cross member and undersealed chassis, to protect the areas of the Defender that are most prone to rust. We offer a year’s warranty on applicable vehicles and each that is sold has a thorough ‘health check’, with a full service and 12-month MOT included. LR Motors also offers a wide range of Defender accessories, alongside part-exchange and finance package options to customers. 

We are justifiably proud of our track record of outstanding customer service, which along with our expert knowledge sets us apart from the rest. Our forecourt at Thirsk always has a large range of vehicles in stock, from classic vehicles to Defender 90, 110 and 130 – or you can simply browse the website to find your next Defender.
