Land Rover Celebrates Milestone With Defender 75th Limited Edition

Seen as a cosmetic reworking of the current Defender, the 75th Limited Edition will be released three-quarters of a century after the iconic Land Rover Series I debuted in 1948.

To be offered in either 90 or 110 body styles, the limited edition model gets Grasmere Green paintwork for the first time in addition to 20-inch allow wheels that match the bodywork. On the outside, stylists have added a unique 75 Years graphic, while the bumpers are painted in Ceres Silver and privacy glass comes as standard.

Under the hood, the Defender 75th Limited Edition is powered by the P400e plug-in hybrid powertrain (110 models only) with 398-hp and 472 lb-ft. A 296-hp D300 diesel mild-hybrid is also available in either body style, while every model is married to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and full-time all-wheel drive. 

These revisions elevate the limited edition to a starting price of £85,995 (@ $99,300) or £89,995 in 110 form, a hefty £24,055 bump from the HSE-trim Defender (£61,940) on which it is based.

Life-cycle chief engineer Stuart Frith raved: “This new limited edition captures the spirit of the past 75 years, with its color and detailing, and fuses it with innovative new technology and unrivaled all-terrain capability.”

Although it may be called a “Limited Edition,” the brand has positioned the Defender 75th Limited Edition as a highly collectible piece, it said, and has not placed a cap on production numbers.
