    Default Defender 90 SVX

    A friend of mine sent me some pics this morning. The new family toy according to him. He drives a D4. Only 14000 km on the clock. I didn’t know they were even sold in this configuration in SA. Don’t know what he paid for it but looks very nice!

    SVX celebrates 60 years of Land Rover
    MOTORING / 23 NOVEMBER 2007

    Land Rover will celebrate its 60th anniversary with a special, limited SVX edition of the iconic Defender - The UK will get 200 and South Africa "a few".

    They'll be available from late May or early June 2008.

    The SVX was introduced by Zara Phillips, grand-daughter of Queen Elizabeth II, at a recent British Red Cross ball in London. The first unit off the production line was donated by Land Rover to be auctioned at the ball.

    Ball committee chairman James Johnstone said: "Land Rover's ties with the Red Cross go back to 1954 when it supplied a vehicle for use as a mobile dispensary in Dubai - we're thrilled that the company continues to support our work."

    Most of the 25 000 Defenders produced each year are working tools for everybody from farmers and foresters to aid agencies but the SVX is the most stylish version yet.

    It will be available in a short-wheelbase 90 soft-top and 90 station-wagon versions with metallic black paintwork and subtle satin black graphic decals.

    The exterior trim - including the special "Defender" and "SVX" badges, tubular side-steps and new, clear-cover headlights - will have a contrasting silver finish and the SVX has "diamond turned" five-spoked alloy rims, a reinforced aluminium front belly shield and clear LED tail lights.

    The interior has custom-designed Recaro front seats, distinctive alloy gearshifter knobs, a new audio system with sub-woofer and USB socket, an iPod cradle and Garmin satellite navigation.

    The soft-top model has metallic-silver roll-cage that can support a special black fabric roof over the load bed and a spare wheel stowed behind the front seats, reminiscent of the first open Land Rovers.

    Each SVX will have a numbered plaque.

    Land Rover MD Phil Popham said: "The Defender SVX looks very different to a 1948 Series 1 but it's still an essentially practical vehicle that will get you almost anywhere.

    "For those who want the ultimate Defender, we thought the SVX special edition would be an ideal way to mark Land Rover's 60th anniversary."

    Prices in South Africa will be announced when they arrive.
