Land Rover adds luxury to Defender with Fire & Ice editions

Land Rover defender fire ed both

Few vehicles are more Spartan than the Land Rover Defender. While most of the world’s tough-guy off-roaders — Toyota Land Cruiser, Mercedes G-Wagen, Hummer H2 — have become luxury machines, the Defender battles on as the final bastion of bare-bones four wheel driving. Still using a similar body-on-frame design from 1948, the Defender remains hand-assembled. Now it seems Land Rover are finally listening to calls for a luxury version of the Defender.

Two new limited-production editions of the Defender are now available. Named the Fire & Ice editions they come packed with all the features Land Rover could fit in: Recaro buckets, leather and Alcantara trim, diamond-turned alloys, colour-coded head- and tail- lights, glass sunroof panel, running boards and more. The Fire edition comes in a special Vesuvius Orange metallic paint, the Ice edition in Alaska white, both complimented by black accents. All that kit drives the price of the special Land Rover up to €68,400. Just 850 examples of the exclusive Defenders will be made.
