Land Rover Defender
 Several celebrities fitted parts to the vehicle

Land Rover will cease production of the Defender this year, after almost 70 years. The popular model is used around the world, in every environment from the rainforests of South America to the streets of Chelsea.  

Numerous celebrities and Land Rover fans, including adventurer and TV personality Bear Grylls, were invited to fit a part to the vehicle.

Dr Ralf Speth, chief executive of Jaguar Land Rover, comments: "Over 67 years, the Series Land Rover and in turn Defender has been the transport of choice for explorers, charity organizations, farmers and even royalty.

"Throughout history it has helped pioneers to reach the unreachable. What started life as an agricultural workhorse has transcended the automotive world to become a worldwide design icon…

"The auction of this milestone vehicle is an opportunity to own a piece of Land Rover's history, as Defender enters its final phase of manufacturing in Solihull."

The lot will be sold without reserve and without a buyer's premium.
