    The big birthday special SUV benefits from several cosmetic tweaks inside and out along with an exclusive exterior shade “Grasmere Green” on the body and the 20-inch wheels. The latter creates a visual connection between the limited edition model and the original Series I, which incorporated body-coloured steel wheels.

    • Ceres Silver front and rear bumpers
    • Privacy glass
    • Grasmere Green finish on the door trims and dashboard
    • Cross-car beam coated with Grasmere Green hue

    Parts of the SUV’s standard kit are an 11.4-inch Pivi Pro infotainment unit, head-up display, tri-zone climate control, 3D surround camera, wireless smartphone charging, 14-way powered heated front seats and a folding fabric roof with sliding panoramic glass roof as an option.

    In terms of mechanical setup, the limited-edition Defender remains identical to the standard model. That means it gets energy from a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six mill tied with a 48-volt electric supercharger. The setup is good for making a maximum power of 395 hp and a peak torque of 550 Nm. Spinning the four wheels is an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    “Since revealing the new Defender, customers around the globe have fallen in love with it and demand remains extremely strong. This new Limited Edition captures the spirit of the past 75 years with its colour and detail and fuses it with innovative new technology such as hybrid electric power, configurable Terrain Response, software, over-the-air updates and unrivalled all-terrain capability,” said Stuart Frith, Lifecycle Chief Engineer of the Land Rover Defender.
