Jaguar Land Rover has announced it has decided to showcase in front of the wide audience its Defender 2,000,000 during the two-day Series Land Rover and Defender heritage exhibition event taking place at Bonhams London.
This is the one of the most special autos ever manufactured by the British specialist automaker, with the 2,000,000th Defender being presented to the public during December 15 and 16 alongside other products that will be showcased to mark the 67th year of production in the United Kingdom. The very special Defender has been clad in a Silver Satin paint also treated to an engraved map of Red Wharf Bay where the first Defender was imagined and drawn in the sand. The legendary off-roader has also been treated to Santorini Black finishing touches on the mirrors, grille, wheel arches, door hinges, and the wheels – while also sporting the iconic “S90 HUE” license plate and a “no 2,000,000” badge in the rear. The cabin has also been treated to some modifications, such as an aluminum plaque that bears the signatures of all the people involved in the manufacturing process.
If you’re in London during the celebrations you should definitely check the model out, while you can also listen live to Roger Crathorne, aka “Mr Land Rover”, speaking about the model’s history and his own 50 years’ time with Land Rover. The special event also involves a charity where the one-off Defender will be sold on auction and the proceeds sent to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Born Free Foundation.
