The Land Rover Defender is one of those quintessential vehicles for the off-road enthusiast. Much like Jeep, Land Rover continued to produce the model that quite nearly defines them- but earlier this year the production of the Defender ceased. Over the 68 years of production, Land Rover produced over two million Series Land Rovers and Defender units.
Constructed from aluminium during a time when steel was in short supply, the Defender began its humble life as an agricultural machine. But it fast became popular in a range of applications, being appropriated for use as a fire engine, cherry pickers, and the like. It was used by farmers and royalty alike, making it a proper vehicle for the people.
To celebrate the history of this icon, Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) is holding a roadshow from the 23rd of April 2016, travelling across 14 locations between the Klang Valley and Penang. On display at the roadshow will be a pair of Land Rover Defenders, each equipped with Final Edition Defender Accessories packages. One will be geared more towards adventure, while the other is aimed at an urban design.
