Based on a Maestro commercial van body shell this is one of around 25 built for on road testing of all Freelander running gear without taking full pre production prototypes in public view on the roads. Roll cage, disguised wheels, fuel fillers and registration plates would make this just another van if seen at night while testing. this mule as they were called was used for brake trials and would have covered many miles here and abroad towing a ballast trailer. Only 3 of the mules survive, all others being crushed. Two colours were seen around black and cream. Petrol and diesel, right and left hand drive were made building started in 1994 3 years before production.
