2015 Land Rover Defender Heritage Edition is inspired by early Land Rover models and mixes nostalgic design cues with modern creature comforts.

A Land Rover Defender heritage grille and HUE 166 graphics, recalling the registration plate of the first ever pre-production Land Rover Defender nicknamed ‘Huey’, also identify the Land Rover Defender Heritage model. It hits showrooms from August with production limited to 400 in the UK. Land Rover Defender Heritage Prices will start from UK £27,800.

Land Rover Defender HERITAGE Edition
The Land Rover Defender HERITAGE Edition evokes the history of the Defender as a modern interpretation of the famous HUE 166 Land Rover – the first pre-production Series I vehicle, nicknamed ‘Huey’, which dates back to 1947. Traditionalists will appreciate the Land Rover Defender HERITAGE Grasmere Green metallic paintwork, Alaska White roof, heritage style grille, headlamp surrounds and heavy-duty steel wheels. Other nostalgic Land Rover Defender HERITAGE additions include the silver front bumper with black end caps while clear indicator lenses and Indus Silver door hinges also set the Heritage Edition apart. Land Rover Defender HERITAGE Body-coloured wheel arches and mudflaps bearing the Heritage logo also feature.
Externally, the Land Rover Defender HERITAGE finishing touch comes in the shape of aluminium heritage style badging to the front grille and rear bodywork, which is inspired by the designs fitted to the Series I and II models. Evocative HUE 166 graphics also adorn the front wing panels.
While the Land Rover Defender HERITAGE exterior pays homage to the earliest Land Rovers, the Heritage Edition features a host of modern creature comforts and luxurious finishes inside. They include perforated Land Rover Defender HERITAGE leather outer steering wheel rim and gear lever, Bright Aluminium trim for the air vents, door handles and door locks, and Almond Resolve Cloth seat facings bearing the heritage logo and detailed with HUE 166 tags.
Durable rubber floor mats and a padded cubby box between the front seats ensure the Heritage Edition is as functional as it is distinctive.

The three hotly anticipated limited edition Defender models celebrate a different element of the vehicle’s versatile character.
“We wanted to mark the end of Defender production at Solihull with a special edition but coming up with a single identity was impossible, so we developed three very different interpretations of the Defender to reflect its strength and breadth of character,” said Nick Rogers. “Whether our customers want to celebrate Land Rover’s unrivalled off-road heritage, demand the ultimate in terms of design and performance or have a genuine thirst for adventure, there will be a limited edition Defender that will be fit for purpose.”
As UK production of the current Defender enters its final phase, Land Rover will use 2015 to celebrate its global automotive icon.
The Land Rover Defender event witnessed the debut of the Land Rover Defender Celebration Series; three exciting new limited edition models which each celebrate a different element of Defender’s unique history. The Land Rover Defender Heritage, Land Rover Defender Adventure and Land Rover Defender Autobiography Editions are all powered by Land Rover’s proven 2.2-litre diesel engine and are available to order now.
