We, and the world is sad that the Iconic Land Rover Defender is going out of production in 2016. One of the most iconic 4×4 ever made, the Defender has a legacy of 68-years behind it. It has been one of the most popular off-roaders of all time. This is the week that the Iconic Land Rover Defender “Landie” production will finally be put to an end. Recently Land Rover launched a special edition Defender making two-million units made of the Icon. The car was sold for more than $800,000 with all its proceedings going to charity.

While all is not lost, there is still some time for Land Rover’s Slovakia facility to start producing the all-new replacement Defenders which is expected to begin somewhere around 2018. Till then, the best Defenders one would be able to buy would be either used, or from custom builders who have since the start given the Defender their unique touch.

So, to bit final goodbye to the Iconic off-roader, we are bringing together some of the best custom Land Rover Defender builders that are currently the best in the market. These are proper Lad-toys that have bespoke creature comforts while keeping the off-roading pedigree of the iconic ‘Landie’ intact.
