Land Rover Defender

The Land-Rover Defender is a British four-wheel drive off-road vehicle. The original Land-Rover series launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show in April 1948.

The biggest change to the Land Rover came in late 1990, when it became the Land Rover Defender, instead of the Land Rover 90 or 110. This was because in 1989 the company had introduced the Discovery model, requiring the original Land Rover to acquire a name

After a continuous run of 67 years,  production finally ended on 29 January 2016. This happened when the last Land Rover Defender, with the number plate H166 HUE, rolled off the production line.
