The Land Rover Defender is our most iconic vehicle and remains a popular choice with customers around the globe. As UK production of the current Defender enters its final phase, Land Rover will use 2015 to celebrate its global automotive icon.
Here we try and answer some of the most common questions being asked about the Defender line.
Q. Can I still buy a Defender?
A. Yes. Actually three hotly-anticipated limited edition Defender models will make their public debuts in early 2015.
Q. Will there be a new Defender?
A. Yes, we have stated our intention to continue the Defender lineage but have nothing to add at this time.
Q. What's the significance of the outline in the sand?
A. To mark the launch of the three Defender Limited Edition models, a Defender outline measuring a staggering 1km across was drawn on the beach at Red Wharf Bay in Anglesey, UK. Using a fleet of six Land Rovers, the sand drawing was a tribute to the moment in 1947 when Maurice Wilks first sketched the shape for the original Land Rover in the sand.
Q. How many Limited Edition Defenders will you make?
A. There are three Defender Limited Edition models to celebrate a different element of this iconic vehicle’s character: Autobiography, Heritage and Adventure.
The Autobiography Edition will be available from April with the Heritage and Adventure Editions following from August.
Q. How can I order a Limited Edition Defender?
A. The Autobiography, Heritage and Adventure are available to order now. Availability is dependent by market. Please contact your local retailer.
