The first Land Rover vehicle was launched in 1948. To celebrate the 65 years of off-road technology, Land Rover unveils the new Land Rover Defender LXV Special Edition model. Available in five different body styles, the new LXV is based on the standard Land Rover Defender which is equipped with the 2.2-litre diesel engine and 6-speed manual transmission, producing 122 hp at 3,500rpm and 360 Nm at 2,000rpm.
The Special Edition model sports 16-inch Sawtooth alloy wheels and comes in Santorini Black or Fuji White with contrast Corris Grey roof, grille and headlight surrounds and facia. The interior boasts exclusive full leather seats with LXV embossed front headrests and unique orange contrast stitching on the seats, steering wheel and centre cubby compartment to complement exterior LXV decals. An optional union flag decal can be located on the rear of the vehicle.
Land Rover Defender evolved from the original Land Rover in 1990. This iconic family of utility vehicles, including Land Rover Series I, II, III and Defender, has now sold in excess of two million units.
