Rowan Atkinson’s Defender for sale

A LIMITED edition 2015 Land Rover Defender 90 Heritage belonging to comedian Rowan Atkinson, will be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions at the Silverstone Classic festival on July 29-30.

The special ‘Heritage’ edition is one of only 400 examples made as part of the Land Rover Defender Celebration Line, specially released to mark the end of UK production of the current Defender. This particular car was delivered new on November 28, 2015.

The Heritage edition features the Grasmere Green metallic paintwork, Alaska White roof, heritage-style grille, headlamp surrounds, silver front bumpers, heavy-duty steel wheels and HUE 166 graphics in tribute to the first ever pre-production Series I Land Rover from 1947.

Inside the Heritage design includes an aluminium clock, aluminium door handles and perforated leather on the steering wheel, gear stick and handbrake, as well as cloth seats with vinyl sides and backs. A padded cubby box and Heritage logo rubber mats complete the look. An upgraded DBS stereo, mud flaps, tow bar, and bespoke dog guard also feature in this particular example.

The Land Rover has covered just 2,260 miles and will be offered with a pre-sale estimate of £38,000 – £45,000.
