The Lego set is designed to capture the essence of the Defender 90, with features such as working doors, hood, and tailgate, a removable roof, a detailed interior, and a winch. The set is also equipped with a range of accessories, including a jerry can, a shovel, a tool kit, and a spare tire. The finished model measures 22cm high, 42cm long, and 20cm wide.

The UK price for the set is £209.99, while the US price is $239.99, and the European price is €239.99. The set will be available from Lego stores, Land Rover dealerships, and online retailers.

Land Rover Defender 75th Anniversary Legend Edition

The launch of the Lego set follows the introduction of the Land Rover Defender 75th Anniversary Legend Edition model in December 2022. The limited-edition model was created to celebrate Land Rover's 75th anniversary and the legacy of the Defender model. The Legend Edition is available in two versions, priced at ¥898,000 to ¥958,000 ($136,000 to $145,000).

The Legend Edition is based on the Defender 90 model and features a bespoke exterior and interior design, as well as a range of performance enhancements. The exterior of the Legend Edition is distinguished by a unique grille, a special paint finish, and a set of exclusive alloy wheels. The interior is fitted with premium leather seats, a custom dashboard, and a high-end audio system. The Legend Edition is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-six engine, which delivers 400 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque.

Land Rover's commitment to four-wheel drive performance

Land Rover has a long history of producing four-wheel-drive vehicles that are renowned for their performance and durability. The company was founded in 1948, and its first model, the Series I, was designed for agricultural and military use. Since then, Land Rover has developed a wide range of models, from luxury SUVs to commercial vehicles, but its commitment to four-wheel drive performance has remained a constant.

The Defender model, in particular, has become an iconic symbol of Land Rover's off-road capabilities. The model has been used in a variety of applications, from safari tours to disaster relief missions, and has earned a loyal following among enthusiasts worldwide. The Lego Icons Classic Defender 90 set is a tribute to this legacy and a celebration of Land Rover's 75th anniversary.
