Land Rover is selling its old Defender again – but there’s a catch | The Sun

THE Land Rover Defender is an automotive British icon.

The old model is celebrated for its tough off-road prowess and ability to look just at home on the farm as it does in the city.

So car fans around the world were gutted when Land Rover announced it was stopping production back in 2016.

However, Land Rover kept some back and has drip-fed limited numbers of special edition Defenders since.

Now there's another chance to get your hands on a brand new 'old' Defender.

The catch? It'll cost you at least £225,000.

And that's for the small three-door '90' version, the larger five-door '110' costs more.

The reason? Well, land Rover is only releasing 25 of these Expedition Defenders and all are fitted with a thumping great 405hp V8 petrol engine.

It says the cars are 'paying tribute to the legacy of global Land Rover expeditions.'

The limited-run cars have 'distinctive adventure-inspired camouflage that features 23 locations that have played a part in Land Rover’s illustrious off-roading and exploration adventures over more than 70 years.'

And if you manage to get your hands on one, you'll be invited to take part in a special three-day off-road competition.

You can choose between the 90 and 110 Station Wagon models, plus an even more limited number of 110 Double Cab Pick-Ups.

All the cars come with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and uprated brakes and suspension, plus a black and white paint scheme under the camo.

Outside, accessories include a front A-frame with an integrated winch, a powerful full-width LED light bar, rock sliders and an expedition exterior roll cage.

Inside you'll find two-tone Recaro Windsor Leather sports seats, dashboard and trim, a Land Rover Classic Infotainment System and a clock with a face that mirrors the camouflage by watchmaker Elliot Brown.

And if you were worried that your watch didn't match your £225,000 Defender, then worry not. Elliot Brown is making one to go with it.
