That's a very liberal use of the term defender to get to 2M...

Yeah... # 1 million was a Series III..... and wasn't the last Series III...

So w/ the rest of the Series III's, and the Stage 1's, the total number of D90/D110/D130/Defenders, is under a million....

It is the same model series. A Defender is just a Series 4 Land Rover.

From the description
Quote:
Celebrating 67 years of iconic Land Rover production, a unique vehicle has been built to commemorate the UK production of the two-millionth Series Land Rover and Defender.

With a bespoke design and an all-star cast of special guests helping to complete the momentous build, ‘Defender 2,000,000’ has been created to be a fitting tribute to almost seven decades of Land Rover production in the Solihull plant, UK.

Should the Defender be a series 5? In between the series III and Defender was the 90/110

And they even made a cake! Looks pretty good! Body panels look like a bad bondo job, but altogether, pretty sweet! ;-)

Forget the Series debate, as there never was a Series One. Just a Land Rover at the time.
