The Ultimate Adventure Mobile
Take a ride in this Land Rover Defender that's been made even tougher (and cooler) by ICON.
... And we want one really bad.
I'll be honest, I don't think I'm gonna have a Land Rover Defender anytime soon. But damned if I don't still double tap every Instagram I see of one, or rubberneck when one passes on the street. Which is why I'm so excited about the news that Land Rover is producing the definitive reference on the Series and Defender models. The brand's upcoming coffee table book, Icon: The Official Story of the Series Land Rover and Defender, is a handsome tome that clocks in at over 200 pages.
It features carefully chosen archive images, vivid first-hand accounts and exclusive interviews with the people behind the legendary 4x4 which has fans of every generation and age group. For nearly 70 years, the SUV has garnered a loyal following and this book documents the car's rich history along with its accomplishments with commentary from the likes of Richard Hammond, Bear Grylls and Ralph Lauren. The book is due out in July, but those who are interested can register to reserve a copy now. That's what I'm doing, because if I can't have a Defender in my driveway, I sure as hell can have this book on my coffee table.

The Defender was initially called the Land Rover Ninety and then Land Rover One Ten.
