A limited-edition Land Rover Defender has been launched to mark 75 years of the iconic British brand. Land Rover Defender has been established with unique paint and is priced at £85,995.

A cosmetic reworking of the current Defender, the Defender 75th Limited Edition will be launched three-quarters of a century after the legendary Land Rover Series I was introduced in 1948, then just the name of the SUV launched by the now-defunct Rover.

It would be available in 90 or 110 body styles (the larger eight-seat 130 has been omitted). You will get a Grasmere Green paint job (not seen before on a Defender. synonymous with early Land Rover models) with 20-inch alloy wheels colored to match the bodywork.

Other unique features include several “75 Years” graphics throughout the body and Ceres Silver bumpers. Inside, the dashboard crossbeam is also colored to match the Grasmere Green bodywork.

These touches help lift the limited edition to a starting price of £85,995 (£89,995 in 110 forms). It has a hefty increase of £24,055 from the HSE-finished Defender (£61,940) on which it is based. However, it won’t be the most expensive Defender in the range with that distinction for the £113,505 Land Rover Defender V8 Carpathian Edition.

Under the hood, the two powertrain options are the 296 bhp D300 diesel (models 90 and 110) and the 398 bhp P400e plug-in hybrid (only 110).

The technology includes a 3D surround camera and configurable terrain response. A car has a Meridian sound system and an 11.4-inch Pivi Pro infotainment system. All vehicles also have several options as standard, including the towing package. Buyers will be able to replace the standard folding fabric roof with a sliding panoramic option.
