Defender 75 Lands In Australia
Diamonds at 60, platinum at 70, and the green treatment at 75? Land Rover celebrates 75 years with a new, heritage-inspired Defender.
British marque Land Rover marks its 75th birthday by turning to the archives—releasing a striking, limited-edition of its revered and award-winning off-roader, Defender.
The Defender 75th Limited Edition—available in 90 and 110 models—sees the SUV bathed in Grasmere Green, a nod to its history and a shade exclusively reserved for this limited run.
The distinctive shade doesn’t stop at the body, with the metallic green hue extending to the rims of the 20-inch alloy wheels as well as though the interior with the cross car beam also clad in a Grasmere Green powder coat and complete with laser-etched detailing on the end caps.
Both variants boast Land Rover’s powerful and efficient P400 3.0L six-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine, producing 294kW.
While the Defender 75th Limited Edition pays tribute to the British marque’s storied history, its makeup is decidedly forward-thinking. Based on the high-spec HSE, inclusions run to 3D surround camera, Meridian sound system, Matrix LED front lighting, 11.4-inch infotainment system, Head-Up Display (HUD), wireless device charger, sliding panoramic roof and more.
The Australian allocation of the Defender 75th Limited Edition is limited to, not surprisingly, 75 examples—25 Defender 90s and 50 Defender 110s.
To celebrate the arrival of the Defender 75th Limited on Australian shores, Land Rover recently collaborated with Sydney photographer Eugene Tan, founder of Aquabumps, to create a limited-edition release of—you guessed it—75 prints that see the new model captured exploring some of New South Wales’ most picturesque and remote areas. Land Rover held an event at Bondi Beach to mark the occasion, with the limited-edition Defenders displayed alongside the Defender x Aquabumps photo series.
