Extra special Land Rover Defender marks Solihull milestone

Last month, Land Rover marked the production of the 2,000,000th utility vehicle at its Solihull plant with the creation of an extra-special, bespoke Defender.

The appropriately named Land Rover Defender 2,000,000 will be auctioned off later this year.

It features a number of unique design touches including a map of Red Wharf Bay – where the design for the original Land Rover was originally drawn, right there in the sand. It also features a unique No. 2,000,000 badge.

The exterior is finished with Santorini Black wheels, wheel arches, roof, door hinges, grille and mirror caps. Even the registration plate of the car harks back to the illustrious history of this legendary British manufacturer. It reads “S90 HUE”, in reference to the first ever pre-production Land Rover.

More than thirty illustrious fans of the Defender participated in the build, including Roger Crathorne, Tim Slessor, Virginia McKenna, Will Travers, Theo Paphitis and Bear Grylls.

It will be auctioned at Bonhams on 16 December, the same month that the Defender will go out of production at Solihull.
