Those looking for a hard-core, bare-bones off-roader have always had the Land Rover Defender to turn to. The same basic design has been hand-assembled at Land Rover's factory in the UK for over sixty years, equipped with only the features needed to make it across the Sahara or over the next mountain. But with the Fire & Ice editions, Land Rover has given the Defender all the luxury touches customers have come to expect from their SUVs. The interior is wrapped in leather and Alcantara suede, the seats have been replaced by Recaro buckets, there's a glass sunroof, alloy wheels, body-colored headlamp housings and more. The Fire edition features a special Vesuvius Orange metallic paint, the Ice edition in Alaska white, both of which are contrasted by Santorini black hoods, roofs and other accents. Only 850 examples will be produced at €68,400 ($95,000) and distributed across Europe, China and South Africa.
