The British Challenger tier 7 tank destroyer is one of my favorite tanks and I have wondered if anyone knows if there are any left in existence since only around 30 were ever made

They made 200.  Two survivors. According to Wikipedia,  one in the Netherlands and the other undergoing restoration for the Bovington tank museum

Thanks for that info but its surpprising that only 2 left known to exist out of 200, it makes the question of what happened to them all

Sadly (for history), at the end of the war there was a huge shortage of all kinds of material for rebuilding.  Many tanks were just scrapped - melted down to make other things.
