With the end of production of the Defender that can trace its lineage back to 1948, Land Rover produced three limited edition Defenders, the Heritage, Adventure and Autobiography offering buyers and collectors a slice of exclusive Land Rover history before production ended. The flagship model in the range is the Autobiography, as offered here, with a limited production run of only 80 examples. It's the most expensive production Defender and cost from £61,845 when new and available only in the 90" station wagon.As with the short-wheelbase Adventure, the Autobiography comes with the 28bhp power boost and 40Nm jump in torque. There's a choice of two-tone paintwork as well as standard 16" alloy wheels and off-road tyres, privacy glass and Autobiography badging.
The Autobiography specification sheet includes, amongst others, a metal fuel filler cap, side steps and black body details. Inside, you'll find Land Rover's full Windsor Leather interior embossed with the Autobiography logo, as well as aluminium trim, unique carpet mats and spun metal discs in the cup holder slots.First registered on the 26th June 2015, this fine example has only covered 1,088 miles from new. Supplied with a V5 document and HPI clear, it remains with its original owner. Resplendent in its two-tone colour scheme and with only 80 produced, demand has outstripped supply of the rarest of Defenders and prices have risen over list price accordingly. A great opportunity to purchase a piece of automotive history.
