Land Rovers originally were invented when Willy’s jeeps left in England following World War II finally met their maker. Intended to be farming vehicles, the high and low geared 4 wheel drive Series I was exported everywhere the British empire reigned. Africa, India, and beyond became populated with them, and the four-wheeling functionality was put to use in the brush and mountains. When the U.S. placed requirements that all imported new cars have airbags, Land Rover stuck to their original core vehicle values and refused. No longer are new Defender’s sold in the U.S. So for Land Rover’s 60th Anniversary Defender – complete with satellite navigation, Recaro seats, iPod compatibility and USB input – it’s best to head to Australia where they were just released. 1,800 will be produced worldwide and they are sure to be grabbed quickly.
