Land Rover Shows Trio of Defender Limited Editions [VIDEO]
Land Rover is closing one chapter and opening a new one in the Land Rover Defender life. In order to celebrate its iconic modals, the automaker creates three bespoke special editions named: Heritage, Adventure and Autobiography. Each of them highlights a specific aspect of the Defender's nature, while conveying a sort of individualism, distinguishable sophistication and breadth of character.
To start with, Land Rover Heritage Edition takes its inspiration from early Land Rover models and embodies "nostalgic design cues with modern creature comforts." It comes with a Grasmere Green paintowork contrasted by a white roof. This model is further defined by a heritage grille and HUE 166 graphics as a recollection of the registration plate of the first pre-production Land Rover called "Huey". Its production will be limited to 400 units in the UK in August with a starting price of £27,800.
The exclusive Defender Autobiography version unleashes better performance, luxury and convenience than before. It has duo-tone paintjob, full Windsor leather upholstery and an improved power output from 122 HP (90 kW) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) to 150 HP (110 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). The Defender Autobiography Editions will be available in the UK from April. 80 units will be produced exceptionally as a 90 Station Wagon. The starting price is that of £61,845.
Lastly, the Land Rover Defender Adventure Edition is designed for people who enjoy the great outdoors and like the free-spirited attitude of the Defender which allows them to go whenever they want and do whatever they want too. It is equipped with an extra underbody protection and Goodyear MT/R tires which enhance the all-terrain capabilities of this madness on four wheels. What makes the Adventure model stands out is the use of unique decals and a leather-trimmed cabin. There are going to be 600 Adventure Editions in the UK in August, priced at £43,495.
Honoring the Defender's story, Land Rover has created the largest sand drawing ever made in the UK.
