Built to celebrate the British marque’s 60th anniversary, the Defender SVX was available in both 90 soft-top and 90 station wagon versions. This is one of 300 examples built worldwide, and only 90 cars in total came to the UK. The SVX shares its mechanical layout with the standard Defender, including the same recently-revised (as of 2008) 2.4-litre four-cylinder Ford turbodiesel engine. Offered exclusively in metallic black paintwork, the SVX featured subtle satin-black graphics, special badging, silver finish for the tubular side-steps, the front grille and new clear-lens headlamps. Additionally, all SVX models were equipped with new five-spoke alloy wheels, a reinforced aluminium front under-shield and clear LED rear lights. On the inside, the SVX boasted custom-designed Recaro front seats, an iPod cradle and Garmin satellite navigation, alloy gear knobs, a new audio system, and an individually numbered plaque. It was flatter-riding than any previous Defender courtesy of some subtle, SVX-only improvements to the damping, making it much more comfortable. Build number #167, offered here, was supplied new by Taunton Land Rover on 31st October 2008 and has subsequently formed part of a Land Rover enthusiast’s private Collection, accumulating just 235 miles since.
