Land Rover Defender Sand Drawing Marks the End of an Era

Land Rover Defender Sand 600x382 at Land Rover Defender Sand Drawing Marks the End of an Era

The production of the current generation Land Rover Defender will end at Solihull plant in December 2015. Already, the company has started paying homage to their most iconic product – as part of a year-long celebration – by going back to where it all began 68 years and painting a giant Defender on sand!

Red Wharf Bay in Anglesey, UK, was the place in question where three new special edition Land Rover Defender models were used to make a giant 1km sand drawing of the car’s original sketch. Creating this “temporary artwork” required a fleet of six Land Rovers (Series I, II and III, a 90 from the Eighties, a Defender 90 Hard Top and a Defender 110 Station Wagon), each towing an agricultural 12-foot harrow!

Besides the drawing, the Red Wharf Bay gig also marked the launch of three new special editions Landies called Heritage, Adventure and Autobiography Editions, all powered by the 2.2-litre diesel engine. The Autobiography comes with unique duo-tone paintwork, full Windsor leather upholstery and a power upgrade to 150PS; the Heritage features Grasmere Green paintwork and a contrasting white roof and heritage graphics; and the Adventure boasts additional underbody protection and Goodyear MT/R tyres, plus leather-trimmed cabin.
