With the end of Defender in sight - production is due to end in the UK at the end of the year - Land Rover has released three limited edition models to celebrate the Defender’s place in the motoring history books.
The limited edition models will feature the current 2.2-litre diesel engine and are available to order now.
The Land Rover Defender 90 Station Wagon Autobiography Edition sees the 2.2-litre diesel engine’s output raised from 122PS to 150PS and is blessed with a luxurious interior and detailing. There is full Windsor leather upholstery with bespoke duo-tone paint exterior paintwork with a comprehensive equipment list. Only eighty models will be produced at the eye-watering cost of £61,845 but we are sure they will sell out quickly.
If you have a small budget then the Heritage Edition which has been inspired by the original pre-production ‘Huey’ model and will be finished in Grasmere Green paintwork and a contrasting white roof, might be your cup of tea. It will feature a heritage grille and HUE 166 graphics, and will be limited to 400 models for the UK market. Prices will start at £27,800 and it will be in the dealers showroom’s from August 2015.
If you are more adventurous then the Defender Adventure Edition will appeal, priced from £43,495 and limited to 600 models. It is equipped with additional under body protection and Goodyear MT/R tyres. The will bespoke detailing and decals with a leather trimmed interior.
The Defender could be given a new lease of life outside the EU with production possibly heading to an overseas production plant for markets outside of the UK and Europe.
