On April 30, 1948, the first Land Rover was introduced to the world. 65 years later, the Land Rover is an iconic brand and still going strong.
To celebrate, Land Rover has launched a limited edition Defender, called the LXV (that’s 65 in Roman numerals). The Defender LXV is based on the 90″ Hard Top model, and is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine and 6-speed manual transmission. It also features 16-inch Sawtooth alloy wheels.
Inside, you’ll find exclusive full leather seats with LXV embossed front headrests and unique orange contrast stitching on the seats, steering wheel and center cubby compartment.
To honor the 65th anniversary of the Land Rover, the company will be having an exhibition of heritage vehicles. Over 130 vehicles will take part in the event at Packington House near Solihull. Packington was used to develop the first Land Rover.
