For 67 years, the Land Rover Defender has been the vehicle that’s kept stick-in-the-mud Brits, er, not stuck in the mud. But in December 2015, bogged down by Euro-bureaucracy over emissions, the very last Defender will roll off Land Rover’s Solihull production line.
To mark the passing of this great British icon, Land Rover recently collaborated with fashion designer Paul Smith to produce a special, one-off edition. Inspired by its long-running duties with the British armed forces, the car has been painted using a palette of 27 individual colours. (But no sign of the customary olive drab, as far as we can see).
This final flourish for the old girl finally made it onto the streets right outside Paul Smith’s flagship London store. An appropriate setting for the original Chelsea tractor.
