Default Land Rover celebrates 2 million Defenders through a special edition!

The iconic Land Rover Defender has reached a special landmark - 2 million Defenders!

To commemorate the occasion, the 2,000,000th Defender was rolled out as an unique one-off special edition from Land Rover's factory in Solihull, UK.

This unique car will make it's debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this week, and after being showcased at different venues over the next few months, will finally be auctioned on December 16th. All the proceeds from the auction will be donated to charity.

The Defender started it's journey from 1947 from this production facility through it's Series-I model and has reached this iconic landmark after almost 70 years of it's existence and through four generations (Series I, II, III & Defender).

Several Defender fans including Bear Grylls were invited last month at the factory to help put together the one-off Defender which comes with several exterior and interior tweaks. Starting on the outside, the map of Red Wharf Bay - where the original model was drawn in sand - has been engraved on the aluminum fender while the body wears a Silver Satin paint scheme. The back of the car hosts a "no 2,000,000" badge and there is a special Santorini Black look for the wheels, door hinges, wheel arches, mirror caps and grille.
Stepping inside the cabin, it has leather-wrapped seats with a "Red Wharf Bay" graphic and "no 2,000,000" logos stitched onto the headrests. Fitted to the driver's seat plinth is an aluminum plaque that has been signed by everyone who helped assembly the car. Land Rover has also installed "S90 HUE" registration plates as a throwback to their first pre-production model's "HUE 166" plates.
As a final touch, the interior cabin hosts a "2,000,000" badge on the center console.
