The Land Rover Defender is the most closely related to the original 1948 Series Land Rovers that started the entire brand and are still hugely capable, rugged and durable off-road vehicles. To mark the end of the Defender’s 67 years of production, Land Rover released three special edition models in 2015: the outdoor-focused Adventure Edition, the luxurious Autobiography Edition, and the retro-style Heritage Edition. Adventure Edition models were available in both 90-Series and 110-series body styles, boasting numerous features to emphasise the Defender’s overlander, utilitarian ‘off-road’ character. These included external skid plates & underbody protection, LED headlights, and an external snorkel, as well as full leather upholstery and details inside. The exterior also features black alloy wheels, model-exclusive exterior decals, and a black-painted hood, tailgate, and roof sections to contrast the Corris Grey, Yulong White or Phoenix Orange paint finish – all three being the sole colour options for Adventure models. Power output was also increased from 122 to 150 hp. Only 600 examples of Defender Adventure Editions were made.
This is a 2015 Land Rover Defender 110 Adventure Final Edition Diesel, finished in Corris Grey & Santorini Black with a black interior. This was originally sold new as a British Motors (Jaguar/Land Rover HK) car. The only modification to the car is the aftermarket Moto-Lita wood steering wheel (original factory steering wheel is kept and will also transfer to the next keeper if desired). It has a reported mileage of 119,256km and the current road license is valid until 4th january,2024.
Visual inspection found the Corris Grey bodywork to be in excellent condition with no major surface blemishes or imperfections – the same applies to all body panels finished in contrasting Santorini Black, as well as both external all-terrain chequer plates on the front. The front external bumper does display a small damage on the left hand side but is fully intact. The rear external bumper is in great condition. The side & rear steps and skid plates are intact with minimal visible surface wear and rust which can benefit from a refurbishment to restore their original appearance. The black-finished headlight surrounds and front grille have been preserved with none having faded away. All of the primary lights – the front LED headlights, rear tail lights, and side markers illuminate normally with no fade observed on their casings. Both front/rear side doors, the front bonnet and rear cargo compartment lid open and close normally without any difficulties. All the exterior window trim, side door handles and side door mirrors are in great condition. No surface marks were observed on the Defender alloy wheels. All the original Land Rover badges, including the front exterior ‘Defender’ lettering are present with none possessing any surface wear. The Adventure Edition exclusive ‘110’ front fender decals are all present with no missing portions.
Interior and Trim
Step inside and the rugged interior expected of a Defender, featuring modern amenities and comforts greets the occupants. Both front bucket seats are firm and supportive of both occupants with no major tears in their upholstery – the same applies for all of the rear seats. All the dashboard, centre console, and surrounding trim remain in excellent condition with no major surface wear. Both front/rear side door panels are intact – as noted on inspection, there is surface rust noted near the lower rear side door sill plates (these are focused on the rearmost sections, the middle and front sections are free of any patina or rust). The aftermarket Moto-Lita wood steering wheel is free of any surface wear. The leather-trimmed gear shift knob and low-range lever are free of any major surface scratches. All of the switches, vents, and levers are not missing any pieces and feel solid to use. The Alpine stereo system operates normally with no missing pixels in its LCD display. The instrument cluster gauges are crystal clear, and all the illuminated lights are vibrant in green colour. The rear cargo protector is fully intact.
Engine and Running Gear
Turn the key and the 2.2L Ford four-cylinder turbo diesel engine starts up instantly with an industrial and heavy-duty engine note. Power delivery is as expected of a diesel powertrain – with plenty of torque and pulling power that starts from the bottom end to across all of the rev range to get this 4×4 moving at speed. The 6-Speed manual transmission is smooth and precise to use throughout all six of its gears – the low-range differential gearbox also operates with ease to manually adjust the settings for difficult terrain and off-road situations. The steering was very responsive to use, with the Bilstein suspension installed on this example keeping the ride composed and stable no matter what terrain or degree of speed. The brakes provide plenty of stopping power to bring this 4×4 to a halt. Upon visual inspection of the exposed undercarriage, it was found to be in great condition – with no major rust or corrosion to be found on any of the suspension, exhaust, or chassis portions. The first-generation Defender was one of Land Rover’s longest-running models in production, spanning from 1983 to 2016, before the succeeding L663 generation was introduced. For any fans of the traditional, ladder chassis construction and utilitarian character possessed by these Defenders, this is your opportunity to acquire 1 of 600 Adventure Final Edition models ever made to celebrate its legacy – now available at the Car Farm.
