Land Rover is celebrating 75 years of its iconic Defender with a special edition model.

The 75th edition will come in two body sizes - the 90 variant, priced from £86,000, as well as the larger, eight-seater 110 version, which starts from £89,995. There is no mention of how many will be made, but both are available to order now, ahead of its 75th anniversary next year.

Both versions will come in Grasmere Green, which extends to the 20-inch wheels, as well the dashboard and door cards. The exterior also features a unique ‘75 Years’ graphic, privacy glass, as well as bumpers which are finished in Cerces Silver.

The celebratory theme continues inside, with the addition of ‘75 Years’ detailing which has been etched into the dashboard. 

Under the bonnet for both sizes is a D300 diesel engine making 296bhp, though the 110 can also come with 398bhp P400 plug-in hybrid setup. 

Based on the HSE trim level, the 75th edition includes a 3D surround camera, Configurable Terrain Response as well as a sound system from Meridan. Additional features include Matrix LED lighting to the front, a head-up display, as well as a 11.4-inch Pivi Pro infotainment screen as standard. 

In addition to the above tech, the car also includes a fabric folding roof, which can also be substituted for a sliding panoramic roof if desired.

Stuart Frith, life-cycle chief engineer at Land Rover said: “This new limited edition captures the spirit of the past 75 years, with its colour and detailing, and fuses it with innovative new technology and unrivalled all-terrain capability.”
