More on the Defender 2,000,000!

As we posted yesterday, Jaguar Land Rover have decided to stop making the 4×4 by the end of this year and to mark the 2 millionth production milestone they invited a few celebrities to help build a one of a kind Defender 2,000,000 which they will then auction off in aid of three charities; The International Federation of Red Cross, Red Crescent Societies and The Born Free Foundation.

‘Bear Grylls, Virginia McKenna and Theo Paphitis contributed by fitting parts to the vehicle at Land Rover’s factory’

“The Land Rover Defender has been there for me more times than I care to remember. They are so often the unsung heroes of our TV shows, working hard in the toughest conditions to get crew in and out of exceptionally challenging terrains. Known and respected by me and many other adventurers for their rugged reliability – it was an honour to be asked to take part in the build of this very special car.”
