The Defender is an icon of British motoring, the basic Land Rover shape has existed in one form or another for over 75 years. Of course, throughout the life-cycle developments were made, but the ultimate ethos and basis remained. Simple, rugged and reliable.

The classic Land Rover shape we know and love came to a production end in 2016, but during the final few years of production, a whole host of improvements were made, as well as a series of special editions released. Late into the production run, the Defender gained modern creature comforts like air conditioning, electric windows and even heated seats, but despite the advent of these modern gadgets and gizmos, the Defender never lost its legendary off-road capability.

This example is a 2012 Defender XTech, the XTech was a special edition Defender that was only available in Orkney Grey or Nara Bronze. Supplied with the same 2.2-litre diesel that other Defenders were supplied with, it gained a host of optional features and Xtech styling.

On the exterior, you’ll find this Defender XTech 90 Station Wagon is finished in Orkney Grey, the paintwork is in great shape, but the usual age related marks can be expected. The deep grey metallic is complemented by Santorini Black accents, the wheels, roof and wheel arch extensions are all finished in the shade.

The aforementioned alloy wheels, referred to as “Saw Tooth”, are in great shape with no marks and are wrapped in a set of Goodyear Wrangler MTR tyres. The rough and tumble theme is continued with black chequer plate, NAS rear bumper and LED lights. Whilst the original XTech grille and front light set have been swapped for the XS type, the originals are included with the sale.

Hop inside and you’ll find a remarkable amount of luxury for such a capable off-road vehicle. Looking at the dashboard you’ll notice no marks or damage, and all the instruments function as they should, and there is an odometer reading of just under 74,000 miles. There is a heated front and rear windscreen, air-conditioning, heated half-leather seats and a leather wrapped steering wheel. It also benefits from being fully carpeted.

Pop the bonnet, and you’ll find a 2.2-litre Puma diesel engine, which produces plenty of torque and power. It’s a reliable unit that is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, which means that you can even cruise along on the motorway. The engine bay is clean and tidy, and there are no obvious leaks or any damage.

This is truly a well looked after example of an increasingly collectable generation of Land Rover. During its most recent service, just 500 miles ago, the Defender was treated to fresh engine, gearbox and differential oil, as well as having a brand-new turbo fitted around 4,000 miles ago! It has also just returned from having the front hub carrier recall work completed in January.
