Land Rover celebrate global icon with trio of Limited Edition Defenders
Land Rover will mark the end of Defender production at Solihull with three limited edition models of the iconic off-roader.
“We wanted to mark the end of Defender production at Solihull with a special edition but coming up with a single identity was impossible, so we developed three very different interpretations of the Defender to reflect its strength and breadth of character,” said Nick Rogers, Land Rover Vehicle Line Director.
Adding, “Whether our customers want to celebrate Land Rover’s unrivalled off-road heritage, demand the ultimate in terms of design and performance or have a genuine thirst for adventure, there will be a limited edition Defender that will be fit for purpose.”
The Autobiography Edition promises more performance, luxury and comfort than ever before thanks to its more than generous equipment list, unique duo-tone paintwork, full Windsor leather upholstery and an increase in power.
Only 80 Defender Autobiography Editions will be available in the UK and will be produced only as a 90 Station Wagon – priced from £61,845.
Next is the Heritage Edition which is inspired by earlier Land Rover models and blends nostalgic design cues with modern design touches.
The Heritage Edition will be easy to identify thanks to its striking Grasmere Green paint and contrasting white roof – a heritage grille and HUE 166 graphics hark back to the registration plate on the first ever pre-production Land Rover – known as “Huey”.
Limited to 400 models, the Heritage Edition comes to showrooms from August with prices starting from £27,800.
Finally, the new Adventure Edition is aimed at Land Rover customers with a taste for the great outdoors and want to embrace the Defender’s “go anywhere, do anything” approach.
Boosting the Defenders already top-of-the-range all-terrain abilities – the Adventure Edition features additional underbody protection and Goodyear MT/R tyres.
A leather-trimmed cabin and unique decals mean this Defender really stands out from the crowd – a total of 600 Adventure Editions are available in the UK with prices starting at £43,495.
