It was at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show, 75 years ago, when the Land Rover Series 1 was first introduced to the world, and it proved to be the starting point of a very long road (or lack thereof) for the Land Rover brand, which would go on to be known for creating some of the world’s most capable, celebrated, luxurious and desired off-road capable vehicles. One of the most iconic names in the entire Land Rover lineup is the Defender, and its legacy is cemented globally as a formidable off-roader with irresistible classic Land Rover charm.
Combining modern appointments and luxury with retro style and timeless off-road capabilities, the new Land Rover Defender is the perfect ode to the classic Defender and the special 75th Anniversary Edition of the legendary SUV highlights that in a very special way. Limited to just 1,948 examples worldwide, with 700 in the U.S., the special edition examples are all finished in Series 1-inspired Grasmere Green, and are all full of special commemorative touches both inside and out.
Not one but 3 of these 700 stunning SUVs are all for sale at Land Rover Clearwater in Clearwater, FL, two of them being Defender 110s, and one being the charming two-door Defender 90. Beautiful, brawny, and dependable even when there isn’t pavement under you, the Land Rover Defender is an amazing SUV to have in your garage, and these 75th Anniversary Editions are the perfect homage to a very long off-road legacy.
