Riley Riley

Surfing can be an expensive undertaking, especially if you need the right set of wheels to reach secluded locations.

Enter the Land Rover Defender Pacific Blue Edition, limited to just 15 examples and priced from $129,976 plus on-road costs.

Pacific Blue Edition will be sold exclusively in short wheelbase 90 body design with a D250 3.0-litre twin turbo-diesel that delivers 183kW of power and 570Nm of torque.

Each of the 15 Limited Edition models will be wrapped in a stunning Pacific Blue matte finish, contrasted with a white roof and enhanced with black roof rails, a sliding glass panoramic roof and privacy glass.

It is also equipped with white 18-inch steel wheels and all-terrain tyres, adding to its rugged appearance.

A handful of distinctive touches have also been made to the interior.

Pacific Blue Edition is based on the S trim level and includes eye-catching white contrasting elements on the steering wheel and door panels, plus a white powder coated brushed finish cross beam dashboard.

In addition, it features Ebony 12-way grained leather heated semi-powered front seats and an upgraded Meridian Sound System.

Each vehicle is equipped with electronic air suspension and adaptive dynamics and headlamp levelling which will come in handy when owners are making their way to their favourite Pacific Ocean beach.

Each of the 15 wagons ​is equipped with a unique custom “Defender” surfboard and design cues from this limited-edition.

Other lifestyle-enhancing accessories include a black side-mounted gear carrier, fixed side steps, an aqua sports carrier, portable rinse system, tow hitch receiver and locking wheel nuts.

Each vehicle features unique badging that denotes that it is ‘1 of 15’, enhancing both its exclusiveness and collectability.

The Defender Pacific Blue Edition is available to order now through Australian Defender retailers.

With deliveries due to commence from May 2024, the new Defender Pacific Blue Edition will be revealed during exclusive retreats at Soma Byron Bay from December 5-13.

With unique Defender drive excursions and curated wellness sessions, these immersive experiences reflect the lifestyle offered by Australia’s long surfing coastline and Defender’s commitment to roving the land.
