The Land Rover Defender is an iconic 4x4 that most of us would love to own, and if your pockets are deep enough you can bid on this bespoke Defender 2,000,000. The Defender 2,000,000 is a custom 90 Series Wagon that was built over 10 days with the help of 33 Land Rover brand ambassadors and enthusiasts, including Bear Grylls.

The vehicle its self features plenty of custom and high-end touches that make this Defender even more unique. The exterior features a map of Red Wharf Bay, where the original Land Rover design was first drawn in the sand, engraved into the aluminum fender. The satin silver paint is contrasted with Santorini black wheels, fender flares, roof, door hinges and mirror skull-caps.

The body isn’t the only thing with unique features, the interior has been upgraded with modern amenities that Land Rover is know for and one-off features. The leather seats feature the ‘Red Wharf Bay’ map and 2,000,000 logo stitched into the headrests. An aluminum plaque signed by everyone that worked on the project is also included in the interior.

Completing the one of a kind badging are a pair of S90 Hue registration plates mounted on the front and the rear of the Defender. The S90 HUE number plate references the first-ever pre-production registration ‘HUE 166’ nicknamed ‘Huey’ This Defender 90 Station Wagon was designed by Land Rover’s design director and chief creative officer Gerry McGovern and his team.

The Land Rover Defender 2,000,000 will spend two days on display before being auctioned off at Bonhams on December 16th 2015. The exhibition will celebrate 67 years of UK production and chart the Defender’s journey and is open to the public starting on December 15th. All proceeds of the Defender 2,000,000 auction will be donated to the International Federation of Red Cross, the Red Crescent Societies and the Born Free Foundation.
