Two-millionth Land Rover Defender to be auctioned next month.
The historic vehicle, which comes after a mind-boggling 67 years in continuous production, will be auctioned for charity by Bonhams London at a special two day exhibition that pays tribute to the legendary go-anywhere model.
The exhibition comes as Land Rover prepares to cease production of the iconic Defender.
To be held in London on the weekend of the 15th and 16th of December, the exhibition will pay tribute to the Land Rover Defenders remarkably history that covers everything from humanitarian work to starring in James Bond movies!
Roger Crathorne, who has worked for Land Rover for over 50 years, will be on hand to talk to visitors during the exhibition. Roger says the event is all about sending off the important model in style.
“The Series Land Rover and Defender have played a huge role in the lives of people all over the world for almost 70 years and to be able to offer it a fitting send off as it nears the end of production is an honour for me.
“Through the creation of the exhibition we have really got under the skin of just what has made Defender such a loved vehicle. We hope that the exhibition really brings to life the richness of the vehicle’s heritage and why it has had such longevity.”
