Limited to just 15 examples, an Australian exclusive version of the Defender, known as the Pacific Blue Edition, will embody our coastline and surfing culture. It will be sold exclusively in 90 body design, with a D250 powertrain.
The Defender Pacific Blue Edition is being revealed during exclusive retreats at Soma Byron Bay this week as part of a series of unique drive excursions and curated wellness sessions that reflect the lifestyle offered by Australia’s long surfing coastline.
Under the hood is a 3.0-litre twin turbocharged Ingenium six-cylinder diesel engine delivering 183kW and 570Nm. Each example will be wrapped in a stunning Pacific Blue matte finish, contrasted with a white roof and enhanced with black roof rails.
A sliding glass panoramic roof and privacy glass feature, and the Defender is equipped with white 18-inch steel wheels and all-terrain tyres, adding to its rugged appearance. A handful of distinctive touches have also been made to the interior.
Based on the S trim level, it includes eye-catching white contrasting elements on the steering wheel and door panels, plus a white powder coated brushed finish cross beam dashboard.
In addition, the Defender Pacific Blue Edition features Ebony 12-way grained leather heated semi-powered front seats and an upgraded Meridian sound system. Each vehicle is equipped with electronic air suspension and adaptive dynamics.
Headlamp levelling is also included and will will come in handy when owners are making their way to their favourite Pacific Ocean beach. The coolest touch though is a unique custom “Defender” surfboard that takes design cues from this limited-edition Defender.
Other lifestyle-enhancing accessories include a Black Side-mounted gear carrier, fixed side steps, an Aqua sports carrier, portable rinse system, tow hitch receiver and locking wheel nuts. Each vehicle features unique badging that denotes that it is ‘1 of 15’ as well.
The Defender Pacific Blue Edition is available to order now. Priced from $129,976 plus on-road costs, deliveries will commence from May 2024. For more information, contact your local dealership. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
