Paul Smith x Land Rover Defender

Mar 23, 2015

Category: Rides

British fashion designer Paul Smith, himself a huge fan and owner of a Defender, has teamed up with Land Rover to make a special version of the iconic British vehicle incorporating his unique flair for color.

Commemorating the final month of production for the Defender, this one-off features hand-finished artwork with a whopping 27 colors (inspired by the British countryside) used on the exterior, though they are muted a bit as to mesh with the vehicle’s rugged military-based DNA. The interior delivers plenty of luxury, with a mix of leather and fabric for the seats. While many of the Defender’s traditional elements remain (wing mirrors, door handles and wheels), there’s also plenty of unique touches, including a hand-painted bumble bee on the roof. The Paul Smith x Land Rover Defender will be on display outside of Paul Smith’s store in London.
