The iconic Land Rover Defender now has even more rugged appeal with the launch of the Defender XTech Special Edition.
Offering customers the same assured breadth of capability, the Defender XTech stands out from the crowd in Orkney Grey or striking Nara Bronze, which is unique to this special edition, with contrast Santorini Black roof and wheel arches and black chequer plate along the bumper and sills.
A special ‘DEFENDER’ decal sits above the rear LED lights whilst the front lights are enhanced with Santorini Black headlamp surrounds in contrast to the body colour. This distinctive front end design is complemented with a body colour grille and gloss black Land Rover lettering on the bonnet. A rear step bumper assembly aids entry, exit and loading. Gloss Black Saw Tooth 16-inch alloy wheels and MTR off-road tyres complete the look giving the Defender XTech a powerfully strong and purposeful stance.
A pure Ebony part leather interior complements both the Orkney Grey and Nara Bronze with contrast Lunar stitching. The Land Rover logo is embossed on front headrests whilst carpet mats have the Defender logo woven in. To harmonise with the exterior of this special edition, the central switch panel matches the body colour of the vehicle with the same paint finish.
The XTech Special Edition comes with a high level of standard equipment, including Air Conditioning, Anti-Lock Brakes with Electronic Traction Control, central locking with remote control and heated seats and windscreen.
With a choice of the 90 Hard Top and 110 Utility Wagon, a range of standard options and accessories are available to add even more capability and character to this iconic four-wheel drive vehicle.
Powered by the 2.2-litre diesel engine with six-speed manual transmission, the Defender boasts 360Nm of torque for effortless towing and excellent driver refinement whether on or off-road.
The Defender XTech Special Edition goes on sale from July starting at £27,995.
Having got his hands on a number of Discovery’s and promptly transforming them into visual icons, principal British Designer Afzal Kahn has applied the finishing touches to a sportier and aggressive version of the vehicle entitled: the ‘Black Edition’.
You cannot really comprehend the Black Edition nor can you understand the feel of this irresistible vehicle until you actually get behind the wheel yourself. A rousing entity with aspiration; it is the sort of car you can drive with utilitarian but charming purpose.
From exterior styling to performance and lifestyle accessories, the Black Edition exudes craftsmanship and performance enhancing features.
The Black Edition comes with an impressive aerodynamic pack consisting of a four piece body kit, RS grille in matt black, side vents, colour coded side skirts, red calipers, led lights, aluminum foot pedals, Kahn sports exhaust system along with Kahn branding.
Inside is the new “bespoke touch” with a whole new personalised leather treatment to suit the customer’s own specifications. You can also keep your family entertained as they sit comfortably and pander to the whims of the multimedia system.
Evolved through skilled artistic innovation and state-of-the art manufacturing and materials technology- our 22-inch RS-600 wheels – exemplify what A. Kahn Design is all about: elegance and skilled artistic innovation. Furthermore, the option to place 22-inch RS-L wheels, is also available.

Land Rover’s stand at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show will establish this year as one of the most exciting in the brand’s history. Hybrid technology showcase, the new Range Rover Evoque with both coupé and 5-Door derivatives, and two exciting Limited Editions complete the line-up.
Making its motor show debut is the ‘Range_e’; Land Rover’s diesel hybrid plug-in prototype. The technology-packed ‘Range_e’ is one of several working prototypes currently being developed at Land Rover’s design and engineering centre in the UK.
‘Range-e’ is based on a Range Rover Sport and features a 3.0-litre TDV6 diesel with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. Matched with a plug-in parallel diesel hybrid system it offers a premium SUV that can run as a pure electric vehicle.
The ‘Range_e’ is the first capable 4WD model from Land Rover to achieve 89g of CO2. It has an EV range of 32km, a top speed of around 193kph…and a range of 1112km.
Taking centre stage will be the new Range Rover Evoque with both coupé and 5-Door derivatives. On press day (1 March 2011) Land Rover will be announcing full European pricing and will be showing a range of exciting options available, giving Range Rover Evoque customers the opportunity to create a vehicle that is truly tailored to them.
The choices range from designer exterior packs, contrasting colours on the roof and spoilers, immaculately-trimmed designer interiors, and a range of desirable technologies to maximise comfort and enjoyment on board. Rather than using a traditional trim hierarchy, the Range Rover Evoque gives customers the choice of three design themes: the cool and contemporary ‘Pure’, the luxurious ‘Prestige’, and the bold and sporting ‘Dynamic’.
Customers can further tailor these themes with different designer interiors, option packs, standalone and accessory items, providing even more freedom to specify the car of their choice.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director said: “Customers like to make their own unique statement with a vehicle and we have provided individuals with lots of opportunity to personalise their new Range Rover Evoque, whilst maintaining the essence of the design.”
Owners can also choose from a very broad selection of official Range Rover accessories. The accessory range includes exterior and interior styling, together with a comprehensive choice of practical loading and towing items.
Also debuting at the Show are two Limited Editions. The Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition is the most luxurious Range Rover ever. With unrivalled levels of luxury for both driver and passenger, the Range Rover Ultimate Edition offers an assortment of super-premium features including hand crafted soft feel leathers; a yacht inspired teak floor and rear cabin iPads* as standard.
The 2011 Discovery 4 Limited Editions with Black and White theme are new variants bringing a fresh, more contemporary sense of design to the latest Discovery 4 line-up. Both the Black and White model variants offer levels of luxury not seen before of a Discovery 4, blending high-end interiors with bold, contemporary colour schemes. In keeping with the core appeal of the Discovery 4, both of these Limited Editions offer on-road refinement to match most executive saloons, the versatility of a large people carrier and unrivalled off-road capability.
