Overfinch is singing the Land Rover Defender’s swan song by introducing a limited-run 40th Anniversary Edition.

It’s the end of the line for the iconic Defender and now British tuner Overfinch wants to celebrate the model’s heritage with a very special two-door Defender 90 2.2-liter diesel model. It comes with a plethora of cosmetic tweaks, from the 18-inch diamond-turned Apollo wheels to the electrically-operated tow bar. In addition, the fuel filler cap and door handles are machined from aluminum billet. There’s also a set of integrated LED daytime running lights and Overfinch’s own front grille treatment.

The step plates and door sill protectors are painted in the same color as the body and at the back the bumper has been reshaped as a step. Rounding off the list of exterior tweaks is the polished black chrome “Overfinch” lettering on the hood for that extra touch.

Stepping inside, the Defender 40th Anniversary Edition adopts a Bridge of Wier leather upholstery found not just on the Recaro racing seats, but also on the headliner and dashboard. It’s also got deep pile carpets, aluminum switchgear and pedals, rearview camera, along with bespoke matting in the load bay. On the entertainment front, there’s an Alpine sat-nav setup and even a subwoofer enclosed neatly in a storage box.

Overfinch says production will be strictly limited to just five units and each will cost £70,000 (about $104,600 / €99,000) and will have an individually numbered plaque.
