Start Saying Goodbye to Land Rover Defender with these Special Editions

The time is finally here: it’s when we’re all going to have to say farewell to the Land Rover Defender as we know it – with a slew of special edition models.

Land Rover promised them and now they’ve delivered three Defenders commemorating the winding down of production.

The Autobiography Edition is basically a black Defender with all of the options selected for you, along with the 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine getting a boost from 122 to 150 horses in this form, as a 90 Station Wagon only. It will sticker for an eye-watering £61,845 in the UK. Moving on…

The Adventure Edition is more in the spirit of the Defender, with all of the off-road options included such as skid plates and beefier tires. It will go for a slightly more reasonable £43,495.

But the ultimate farewell Defender is the Heritage Edition. Its so-called Grasmere Green exterior paint and a contrasting white roof evoke memories of the very first Land Rover from 1948, right down to the number plate of the first pre-production one. In two-door hardtop form with its nondescript wheels, it has icon written all over it. And it’s the cheapest of these three editions, at £27,800.

To further commemorate this event, Land Rover also sent six Defenders out to make a kilometer-wide sand drawing of a Land Rover in Red Wharf Bay in Anglesey, where the original drawings for the original vehicle were drawn in the sand in 1947 by Spencer Wilks.

Because they can.
