With metallic black paintwork and subtle satin black graphic decals, the Defender 110 SVX will be available as a seven-seat station wagon. Distinctive exterior features have a contrasting silver finish, such as the unique 'Defender' and 'sVX' badges, tubular side-steps, and the bold surround for the front grille and new, clear-lens headlamps. The SVX will also feature new, 'diamond turned' five-spoke alloy wheels, a reinforced aluminium front undershield and clear LED rear lights. To bring the SVX interior right up to date, it will be equipped with custom-designed Recaro front seats, a distinctive alloy gear knob, a new audio system (with subwoofer and USB socket), iPod cradle and Garmin satellite navigation.
"The Defender 110 SVX looks very different to a spartan 1948 Land Rover, but it's still an essentially practical vehicle that will enable you to go almost anywhere," says Phil Popham, Land Rover's managing director. "The new and much more refined diesel engine introduced earlier this year has been a great success with customers, and for those who want the ultimate Defender, we thought that the SVX special edition would be an ideal way to mark Land Rover's 60th birthday." Only 36 Defender 110 SVX special edition models will be sold in Australia. Production of the Defender SVX will begin in Winter 2008, with deliveries to Australian customers in Spring 2008.
