Following on from the successful ‘Defender Black’ limited edition in 2002, Land Rover revealed at this year’s Canary Wharf International Motor Expo a rebirth of the Defender limited edition, the ‘Defender Silver’.

The ‘Defender Silver’ is available in 90″, 110″ Station Wagon and 110″ Double Cab derivatives and will include a broad range of interesting features including A-Frame protection bar, driving lamp kit, hinged lamp guards, sump guard, black chequer plate styling kit and wing top protectors, half leather seats, CD player and tow bar with electrics.

Phil Popham, Land Rover managing director commented: “The silver metallic paintwork, black chequer plating and alloy wheels give our icon a real on-road presence whilst retaining all its superb off-road characteristics. Defender Silver’s competitive price positioning also makes the already successful range even more appealing to new owners.”

The Defender black is powered by the rugged 2.5 litre, five cylinder turbocharged diesel engine developing 122 PS and has a five speed manual gearbox, two speed transfer box and permanent four-wheel drive. Three hundred limited editions will be built for the UK and go on sale from 1 September 2005, with prices starting from £24,595 for the 90″ Station Wagon, £26,995 for the 110″ Station Wagon and £24,795 for the 110″ Double Cab.
