Special Defender marks milestone
Inside, the leather seats also feature the Red Wharf Bay graphic and ‘no 2,000,000’ logos have been stitched on the headrests.
An aluminium plaque, signed by everyone who helped assemble the vehicle, is fitted to the driver’s seat plinth while on the front and rear, S90 HUE registration plates – a reference to the first ever preproduction Land Rover, registration ‘HUE 166’ – complete the Defender.
Last month a team of life-long Defender fans were invited to join the Solihull production line to help build the vehicle, including Bear Grylls.
He said: “The Land Rover Defender has been there for me more times than I care to remember. They are so often the unsung heroes of our TV shows, working hard in the toughest conditions to get crew in and out of exceptionally challenging terrains.”
