In 1947, Rover’s chief designer, Maurice Wilks, began designing a capable 4×4 vehicle for the Rover, using military vehicles used by the US army as a model. The first Land Rover with an 80-inch wheelbase was presented at the Amsterdam Motor Show in 1948, and the world’s most capable off-road vehicle was manufactured with thoughtful updates until 2016.
In 2008, Land Rover decided to celebrate its 60th anniversary and released the SVX 60th anniversary model. In 2008 and 2009, a total of only 1800 Defender SVX 60 YRS special models were produced, with wheelbases of 110 inches and 90 inches. The factory equipment of the special model included, among other things, Air conditioning, Recaro seats, Santorini Black special color with matte detailing, special alloy wheels, Garmin navigation system, Clarion hi-fi system, LED tail lights and aluminum gear knobs.
