Any day now, we’ll see what the new Land Rover Defender will look like, but we’re still utterly smitten with the old one. The mountain goat of an SUV has been an icon in the off-roading world. No-nonsense, tough as nails, and about as aerodynamic as a window air-conditioning unit, the Defender goes where few others can. In a final edition of sorts, Land Rover has outfitted both the 90 (2-door) and 110 (4-door) Defender with its most potent mill yet, a burly 5.0-liter V8 that delivers a mud-slinging 400-horsepower and launches the SUV to 60 in 5.6 seconds. This one gets outfitted with Recaro sports seats clad in two-tone Taurus leather, so you’re backside isn’t wanting for comfort as you bound over rocks. It’s also easier to drive thanks to a new ZF 8-speed automatic transmission with sport mode and quickshift responsiveness. And to uphold its rugged reputation, the 70th Edition gets a dual-speed transfer case with a center differential, as well as updated suspension components and brakes. You can’t buy it here, sadly, but it might just be worth it to move to the UK just to own one. Only 150 of these will be made, and we hope you get yours in classic green.
