Land Rover Defender celebrates 75th birthday with limited edition model arriving in Australia.
Land Rover reaches its 75th anniversary next year, but it’s starting its celebrations early with the Defender 75th Limited Edition. It’s available to order now in Australia, with prices ranging from $152,077 plus on-road costs for the 90 P400, and $156,157 plus on-road costs for the 110 P400. Just 75 examples will be available in Australia, 25 Defender 90 and 50 Defender 110, with deliveries expected from April 2023.
Helping the 75th Limited Edition stand out from the standard Defender HSE on which it’s based is Grasmere Green paint, which is found outside and inside. There are also 20-inch alloy wheels in the same finish, which are fitted with off-road tyres. On the outside there’s a unique 75 Years graphic, the bumpers are painted in Ceres Silver and privacy glass comes as standard.
The interior has also been given a mild tweak. There’s a laser-etched ‘75 Years’ detail on the dashboard, the seats are trimmed in ‘Resist Ebony’ (black, in other words) and the centre console uses Land Rover’s ‘Robustec’ fabric.
Since the 75th Limited Edition is based on HSE trim, standard kit includes 3D cameras, air suspension, Land Rover’s Terrain Response tech, a Meridian sound system, LED headlights, an 11.4-inch Pivi Pro infotainment screen, head-up display and wireless smartphone charger.
In addition there’s a folding fabric roof or the option of sliding panoramic glass with roof rails. Up front, there are 14-way adjustable heated seats and a heated steering wheel, while three-zone climate control is also included.
Under the bonnet, the Defender 75th Limited Edition is available in Australia exclusively with the P400e plug-in hybrid powertrain producing 294kW and 640Nm. A 300 diesel mild-hybrid is also available in Europe.
As well as the car itself, buyers will receive a unique watch, backpack and T-shirt with Defender 75th Limited Edition branding.
