The Land Rover Defender SVX comes in metallic black with subtle satin black decals and is available in both 90 soft-top and 90 station wagon ( versions. The exterior is touched up with silver finishes, clear lens headlights, new surround on the front grille, tubular side-steps, 'diamond turned' five spoke alloy wheels, reinforced aluminium front udnershield, LED rear lights and of course custom badges.

So, that UK-only Land Rover Defender SVX ( Turns out it's not UK-only. Well, the Defender 90 version is, but Blighty is not the only market getting an SVX to celebrate LR's 60th birthday. The Australians will blow out the candles with the Defender 110 SVX. The longer-wheelbase Outback stormer gets the same visual treatment as its shorter Brit-market brother, meaning a new grille surround, upgraded lighting, the spiffy five-spoke wheels, and a Recaro-adorned upgraded interior, among other things. 36 copies of the dressed-up yet rough-and-tumble Defender 110 SVX will arrive in Land Rover showrooms Down Under next year.
