This car represents the end of an era. After 67 years of making one of the most iconic off-roaders, Land Rover have finally called time on the Defender, so closely linked in heart, body and soul to the original Series I. To mark the occasion, Land Rover launched the final Defender Heritage series. Limited to just 400, the last ever Land Rover is known as the "Celebration Limited Edition", and the very final one produced rolled off the production at 9.15am on the 29th January 2016. It was the 2,016,933rd Defender built at Solihull and thus became the last true Land Rover.Never has there been a car that has so captured the imagination of the world. Land Rovers have saved lives, won wars, delivered aid and hope, conveyed Kings and Queens and numerous Popes, ferried injured animals from the lowliest sheep to the proudest lion to safety. The Land Rover has conquered ravines, deserts and snow, broken records and along the way won the hearts of millions. This particular Heritage 90, was delivered new on the 28th November 2015 to its one distinguished current owner from new, Mr. Rowan Atkinson CBE, who has recently upgraded to the 110 four-door version.The specification chosen included an upgraded DBS stereo, mudflaps, tow bar, a bespoke dog guard, and rubber over mats throughout. Today it has covered just 2,260 miles and received its first service at Lookers of Battersea on 6th of June, 2017.Silverstone Auctions are very proud to offer this car with such a distinguished pedigree and which, in our opinion, represents the very best of a great British tradition and is now highly collectable.
