1993 North American Specification
When Land Rover brought the Defender to the U.S. for the model year 1993, they did it through their existing Range Rover dealerships. At that time the company was still called Range Rover of North America. Land-Rover, and the newly formed Land Rover North America (LRNA) had some new toys coming to the USA in the way of new models, so what better way to announce their arrival and attract some attention but with a limited run of 500 .
THIS DEFENDER IS NUMBER 198 OF 500
