As part ofits 65th anniversary celebrations, Land Rover has launched a SpecialEdition Defender dubbed the LXV (roman numerals for 65). The specialedition model is based on the Land Rover Defender, which packs a 2.2-literdiesel engine mated to a 6-speed manual generating 122 hp and 266 pound-feet oftorque. It’s available in five different body styles, with 65 LXVs destined for the UK in 90”Hard Top form. The special edition model comes in Santorini Black or Fuji White with a set of 16-inch Sawtooth alloys.

A contrasting shade of Corris Grey used on the roof, grille, headlight surrounds and fascia further distinguishes the LXV from stock Defenders. Inside, full leather seats come with LXV-embossed front headrests and orange contrast stitching that extends to the steering wheel and center cubby compartment to complement the exterior decals. A Union Jack flag decal can be optioned for the rear of the car. The LXV Special Edition will debut at a celebratory event at Packington Estate, the testing ground for the original 1947 Land Rover prototypes and Range Rover development vehicles of the late 60s and early 70s.
