The last of the Land Rover Defenders has left the line in Solihull in January, and to celebrate the end of an era Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia is inviting all to celebrate with them at their Land Rover Defender Roadshow.
From April 23 onwards to May 1st 2016, the Land Rover Defender Rover Team will be touring around the country with two Final Edition Defenders Accessories Packages visiting 14 selected locations starting from Penang to Klang Valley. The locations include a variety of malls, business districts, popular cafes and other popular hangouts in both locations.
Visitors are invited to come to the festivity to not only celebrate the Defender’s legacy but to test drive and join in with the #CelebrateDefenderMy Instagram posts. They can also challenge themselves in the Defender Hill Climb Challenge on iPad and other games to win various exclusive collectibles.
More than two million Series Land Rovers and Defenders have been built in Solihull, UK since production started in 1948. And to think the Defender had started life as simply a line drawing in the sand has gone on to become one of the most iconic 4x4s and earning itself the accolade of being the most versatile vehicle on the planet with talents no other can reach.
“Production of the Land Rover Defender officially ceased globally when the last of the current Defenders left the final assembly line at its Solihull production facility in England on January 29, 2016. What we have here in Malaysia is truly the last batch of this incredibly versatile vehicle with a history that spans 68 years. Therefore, it is the last chance to own a piece of heritage,” she said.
