Startech, a company that designs and builds bespoke, limited edition Land Rovers, will commemorate the final production run of the iconic Defender by producing an ultra-exclusive model – the Sixty8.
The name ‘Sixty8’ was chosen as only 68 models will be produced, paying homage to the number of years that Land Rover have produced the Defender at their manufacturing plant in Solihull.
The Sixty8 is based on the 110 model and is painted in a Corris Grey with a Santorini black roof. It’s clearly identifiable by the black-painted Series III-style moulding on the nose – another throwback to the Defender’s illustrious past.
In addition to the eye-catching exterior design, the Sixty8 has also been fitted with an Alpine multimedia system, 3D navigation, a sports steering wheel, reversing cameras, tinted rear windows, 18-inch alloy wheels, diamond interior quilting, leather sports seats, flared wheel arches and black running boards with corrugated metal steps.
The limited edition Defender Sixty8 will be available as either a five or seven seater and is fitted with the standard Defender 110 engine – a 122bhp 2.2 TDCi turbodiesel. They have left performance levels almost unchanged, giving the Defender Sixty8 a 0-62mph time of 15.8 seconds and a top speed of 90mph.
With Land Rover announcing that they will cause production of the iconic Defender in December this year, time is running out for Land Rover fans to get their hands on one.
