Land Rover Defender 75th Limited Edition Celebrates Iconic Off-Roader

Posted on

There are several long-lasting iconic cars still in production, and the Defender is certainly one of them. Land Rover introduced the Series I at the Amsterdam Motor Show in 1948, meaning the off-roader would be celebrating its 75th anniversaryth birthday next year. To mark an important upcoming milestone, the British brand owned by Tata Motors launched a limited model available in two-door 90 and four-door variants, but not the new 130.

This portable SUV is painted in Grasmere Green, which extends to the wheels as well as the interior of the cabin for the dashboard and door cards. To differentiate it from the regular Defender, Land Rover has also applied a special “75 Years” sticker on the tailgate under the handle. The seats are wrapped in what LR calls Resist Ebony while the center console is covered in Robustec material which is claimed to be the strongest fabric available for a vehicle.

Defender 75th The Limited Edition is based on the well-equipped HSE trim level, which means you get a wide variety of goodies. These include matrix LED headlights, 360-view camera, heads-up display, wireless smartphone charger, three-zone climate control, memory seats, and 11.4-inch Pivi Pro infotainment. It comes as standard with a folding fabric roof but you can optionally switch to a sliding panoramic top. As expected, a configurable Terrain Response is part of the deal too.

Land Rover will sell a limited Defender with additional options including an electrically mountable tow bar and all-season tires. There are no changes under the hood as this tough SUV retains the P400 petrol and diesel D300 mild hybrid engines coupled to the P400e plug-in hybrid powertrain.

Math starts at £85,995 in the UK for the Defender 90 and from £89,995 for the 110. To coincide with the launch of the special edition, Land Rover is introducing the Lifestyle Collection under the Grasmere Green theme. There’s no word on how many will be made, but the LR is already taking orders from early adopters wanting to get behind the wheel of the anniversary model.
