Until I save up enough for a G-Wagon this will have to do!…Based on the original Land Rover, the Defender has looked essentially the same since its introduction in 1983. To celebrate their 65th anniversary, Land Rover has introduced the Land Rover Defender LXV Special Edition. Truth be told, it should be titled “Limited Edition” as only 65 of these iconic vehicles will be made. Exterior upgrades include 16 inch “Sawtooth” alloy wheels and Santorini black body color with contrasting roof, grill, and headlight surrounds sprayed Corris Grey. On the inside you will find leather seating with LXV embossed head-rests and orange stitching. And in typical Defender fashion, not much else. Power comes from a 2.2 liter diesel.
Since its debut in 2011, the Range Rover Evoque has been one of the British carmakers most popular models. Thanks to the ability to customize any of its three trims — Pure, Prestige and Dynamic — this has opened the doors to Range Rover with 70% of Evoque owners being new to the brand. To further push the brand and Evoque, they have enlisted Victoria Beckham to help design this brand new special edition which makes its debut in Beijing, China. Despite your first inclinations that this will be a female-orientated outcome, careful consideration was taken into the overall design to create something equally fitting for Victoria’s husband David Beckham.
Some of the finer details of the Victoria Beckham x Range Rover Evoque Special Edition include the first ever matte hand-painted finish, 20″ wheels with rose gold accents, a hand-stitched tan semi-aniline leather interiors, a bespoke four-piece luggage set, an 825 watt 17 speaker Meridian sound system and a limited edition of 200 models. From a performance stand-point, the car boasts a turbo-charged 2.0 liter engine outputting 237 hp and 251 lbs-ft of torque.
Steve McQueen has the Midas touch when it comes to things for guys. Persol sunglasses, Rolex watches, t-shirts, Ford Bullitt mustangs and Triumph motorcycles are just a few of the things guys everywhere lust after due (in no small part) to McQueen. He obviously loved all of that stuff, but he had a special place in his heart for Triumph motorcycles. Triumph is returning the favour by producing a special edition Steve McQueen motorcycle for 2012. Each member of the 1100 bike collection is based off of the Bonneville T100, individually numbered and painted to match the military style matte green finish of the bike McQueen insisted on riding during The Great Escape. A solo rider seat and black luggage rack have also been developed and fitted specially for this bike. If McQueen were alive, he’d love this bike.
