If serious 4WDs are your thing then the following news will be music to your ears. Land Rover Australia has taken delivery of the most unique version of its iconic Defender, the 60th Anniversary SVX Limited Edition. Boasting distinctive exterior design and interior features, it will likely be one of the most sought-after Defenders to date.
The SVX Limited Edition is a true limited edition, with just 82 individually numbered Defender SVXs being made available for sale in Australia. Worldwide, Land Rover will be producing only 1,800 units, making the SVX a rare and collectable 4WD.
Like the Defender on which it is based, the SVX still bears a strong visual resemblance to its 1948 predecessor, but a resemblance is all it is. With the SVX, Land Rover has introduced the rugged Defender to the new millennium by fitting satellite navigation, Recaro seats, a leather steering wheel and iPod compatibility, features not previously seen in the rough and tumble Defender.
"It's the ideal way to celebrate Land Rover's 60th birthday, and only 82 customers will be lucky enough to own a piece of history," says Roger Jory, Land Rover Australia's General Manager.
Conceived to celebrate Land Rover's 60th Anniversary, each SVX comes with an individually numbered SVX plaque. In addition the SVX features satin black body wrap 60th decals, diamond turned five-spoke alloy wheels, tubular side-steps, reinforced aluminium front under shield, sunroof, heated seats, aluminum gear knob, and a Clarion audio system with sub woofer and amplifier.
The Defender?s legendary off-road ability remains unchanged in SVX guise, Land Rover has simply added a swag of luxury kit to make that outback trip a little more comfortable.
The Defender SVX is available now for a recommended retail price of $63,320.
"For those who want the ultimate Defender, the SVX special edition boasts an array of modern comforts and custom designed features, without compromising the vehicle's go anywhere capabilities."
