Vehicle Description

Since our inception in 2015 with a stock of 4 Defender LR Motors has rapidly grown to become the countries most prominent used Defender retailer. Having successfully stocked and sold almost every limited edition Defender from the SVX to the Adventure, Heritage to the Autobiography one model has alluded us until now.

The Defender 50th Anniversary was a celebration of how far the marque had come in the half century since its own creation. We feel S727AAP is our celebration of how far we too have come. The Defender 50th which was essentially a NAS (North American spec) Defender 90. It was powered by a 190 hp (140 kW) 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine and was the first Land Rover outside North America to be fitted with an automatic transmission. Air conditioning made them very comfortable vehicles. For the UK and Europe they were painted Atlantis blue, a dark green-blue flip colour, and had a safety devices roll-over protection cage for the front seat occupants. In total 1071 50th anniversary Defenders were built; 385 for the UK home market, the rest for Japan, Europe and the Middle East.

S727AAP is Build No:202 of 385 and has is currently having an in house complete nut and bolt restoration. The chassis has been retained to maintain the heritage but has been protected whilst off the vehicle. The engine, transmission and differentials have been completely rebuilt using only the highest quality components. We have built a complete new stainless steel exhaust system to exuberant the sound of this exceptional power train. Where the original parts are no longer available we have commissioned the items to be remade to an exacting standard. An example of this is the carpet. A complete new set has been created one off for this vehicle. The vehicle has received a complete disassembly and the entire body inside and out has been resprayed in the exceptional Atlantis blue by our in house body shop. The vehicle is currently being built back up with all new suspension, brakes, brake lines, fuel system and all new bushes. It has its original freestyle 16" wheels and all terrain tyres.

This rare vehicle is supplied with its entire service and MOT history, owners manuals, heritage certification, documentation of our restoration process which has been completed entirely by LR Motors. It will also come with two keys with one years service, mot and fully comprehensive warranty. Delivery and shipping can be arranged.

The vehicle has received no modifications from factory spec this is the finest example to be brought to the market in recent times and will stand strong for it's next owner to use daily or place into a collection.
