This Brand New 2016 Defender 90 Autobiography Or The Truly New 2020 Defender?

Land Rover celebrated the end of the original Defender with several limited editions, including the Autobiography. Now, one of those vehicles is up for sale, and could be everything you ever wanted from such a ride.

Available from RMSothebys at the London, UK, auction set for October 24, it’s based on the Defender 90. It’s actually one of 80 ever built and is practically brand new, with less than 70 km (43 miles) on the clock, after being kept in storage for a couple of years.

Shipped new to Germany in 2016, it was then sold to its current owner, who took it to Switzerland two years later and continued to treat it like a work of art, refraining from driving it. The unique two-tone paintwork, black and beige Windsor leather upholstery and everything else looks top-notch, with the auction house describing its overall condition as ‘new’.

Special look aside, the Defender Autobiography also benefited from a bump in power in the European market, with the 2.2–liter turbodiesel engine getting 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW), up 28 PS (28 hp / 21 kW) from the regular models.

Don’t go checking your finances just yet, because the auction house didn’t provide an estimated selling price. Still, don’t expect it to be a deal, given that when it first launched, 4 years ago, it was available from £61,845 ($76,983/€69,758) in the United Kingdom. The new-gen Defender, on the other hand, which was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week, is available from £40,290 ($50,152/€45,445).

    Some will hate what I’m going to say, but this you can remote all the badges, logos and emblems and will still be recognized as a defender, while the new one if you striped all the aforementioned things, or can be a ford or some Chinese copy of an LR product. The new one is still nice though tbh. But I’ll pick this.

      Beyond looks, the old Defender was piece of garbage. Good to look at, no thank you to own. A Nissan y61 a full on serious SUV and still sold all over the world for less than $35K will do donuts of this Defender and never break down.

    If they’d put the all-new LCV2/3 into production in the late ’90s like they should have done, I’d take one of those. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/40a7d570441949bd4175d7347f4ff823b0f654ea798f9179f164abaeef1e31ce.jpg
