Just over 69 years ago a legend was born, the first Land Rover was revealed to the world at the Amsterdam Motor Show. Over the next seven decades the rugged 4x4 went on to visit all corners of the world and wrote its name into automotive folklore.
As Land Rover begins the countdown towards its 70th anniversary celebrations next year, the perfect gift for Defender lovers across the globe is about to be released. Icon is the definitive official book celebrating Series and Defender models. The carefully curated and beautifully produced hardback book charts the legendary expeditions, humanitarian projects and adventures undertaken by these incredible machines and the people who brought them to life.
It features carefully chosen archive images, vivid first-hand accounts and exclusive interviews with the people behind the most recognisable 4x4 on the planet, including production line employees, significant customers and company executives.
