Looks like it has the NAS marker lights. Probably the one from the Dunsfold Collection.

Defender fever hits London

Shortly, Defender # 2,000,000 will be going up for auction in London. It's expected to reach up to $3,000,000

That would definitely be a world record price for a Defender.

(Amazing to see how much money is being spent to kill the Defender off. JLR is just making it more sought after.)

Sure, but charity auction prices have no value.

They are not killing it. There will be a replacement. It does seem a lot of excess press about a model generation change. They must be purposely delaying the new model for stupid marketing reasons.

It would be a marketing disaster to instantly come out with a replacement. (they would have to call it the "Land Rover Rebound" cause I think that's how it would make a buyer feel if you owned a Defender previously. You would drive it a couple times, it would seem kinda fun at first, then you would wake up one morning and start to resent it. Sure, it's got heat, and it doesn't leak, but it's just no the same!

Latest is it won't resemble the DC100, thank GOD! It will be a 2018 model, 5 body styles and unibody... however.. it's all about money.

After walking through and seeing the assembly line a couple weeks ago, I realized how little margin there must be in these hand built trucks compared to the automated production process. Not to mention, if you build a vehicle that will get scrapped in 15-20 years, you can sell them another one. If it just keeps getting repaired, and sticks around 30 or 40+ years, you are missing out on more sales. Business is leading the way on this...

I'm not sure. By hyping the change this much, the expectations of the new model will be much, much higher. Hopefully they are taking the time to actually do it right. I doubt it though as they seriously believe and LR4 is a good off road vehicle...

I'm pretty sure, I've never seen an old model go out with no hint as to the details of the replacement. Of course, nobody has ever dragged out a model for 30+ years...

I guess my dreams of the new Defender being built into a medium duty truck will be dashed.

Go big or go home, Land Rover.

They are going to be launching a new Discovery before they launch the new Defender, all the more reason for delay. It's been said that the new Defender could be based on an "existing platform". My guess would be it's going to be on that yet to be released platform for the Disco.

All that aside though, it will be whatever LRNA wants us to have access to. They could come up with the ultimately PERFECT new Defender, and if LRNA doesn't want to sell it here, we will be %#&! outta luck. However JLR is looking to America for strong sales of the new version, so I see plush carpets, leather and a yuppie wagon available on these shores. If there's a utility type version, I don't think LRNA will touch it.

If it is, they added the rear badge since this photo was taken. And it has a rear fog light. That's cool.
