Land Rover has revealed a limited edition model of its Defender that celebrates 75 years since the inception of the model line which was introduced in 1948.
The Defender 75th Limited Edition will be available in 90 or 110 body styles and features an exclusive Grasmere Green exterior finish, complimented by its wheels and interior.
Its 20-inch wheels are finished in the same green as the body which is a nod back to the original Series I that also shared a similar scheme. Unique “75 Years” graphics can also be found on the Defender as well as silver bumpers and privacy glass.
The interior crossbar has been powder coated in the same green as the body while laser-etched “75 Years” details can also be found on the bar.
At its core, the Defender 75th Limited Edition is based on the high-spec HSE model, bringing with it all standard equipment including a 3D surround camera, a Meridian sound system, matrix LED front lighting, an 11.4-inch infotainment system, wireless phone charger and heads up display.
Powertrains include the P400e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) on the 110 models as well as the D300 diesel mild hybrid (MHEV).
While the new edition is essentially a colour and badge package, Land Rover say the model has been created as a collectible to honour its lineage.
The limited edition model is also being launched alongside a range of Land Rover lifestyle goods including a watch, backpack and clothing complete with “75 Years” graphics.
Prices start from £85,995 ($NZ165,000) for the 90, and £89,995 ($NZ173,000) for the 110 with no word on if New Zealand will receive the model.
