motodrome offer for sale this exceptional, fast road spec 2009 Land Rover Defender 90 SVX soft top, as always finished in Santorini Black metallic .
The SVX soft top is one of the rarest of the Defender special editions – we believe only around 90 were produced for the UK market (of the 1600 SVX’s of all types made for the worldwide market) to commemorate Land Rover’s 60th anniversary in 2008, and this one is number 271.
Land Rover started with the standard XS factory spec, including Air Conditioning, cold climate pack including heated seats and screen, fully trimmed interior, ABS and traction control, electric windows, remote alarmed central locking with immobiliser, and then equipped them with the following external upgrades:
SVX front end treatment including front driving lights
Clear lens lights
SVX satin black decals.
Inside they’re again based on the XS with half leather,
bulkhead removal bar,
Recaro sports seats
premium centre cubby box
Upgraded stereo with aux port and subwoofer
Redesigned load bed with underfloor storage
However, some people (including me) regard some of the original upgrades to be a little questionable, especially the silver rollcage and front end treatment, so I’m pleased to report this one looks all the better for having had the rollcage and the front end finished in black, together with the silly dashtop satnav system (which is well outdated now) having been removed.
Furthermore, this one has had the original wheels replaced with Overfinch 18in alloys shod with BFG tyres.
However, the fun doesn’t end there as the last owner (a real Defender enthusiast) decided to make it a bit more special by sending it to Gumtree 4×4 for the following:
Alive Tuning Stage 2 remap
ITG air filter
EGR blanking kit
SS sports exhaust system
Synchro gearboxes slick shift kit
Eibach comfort springs
Bilstein B6 shock absorbers and steering damper
Uprated rear anti-roll bar
Super pro suspension bushes
So now it goes, and handles, the way a fast road special Defender should.
Further upgrades include gloss black front bumper and mirrors, KBX grille and wingtop vents, NAS rear step with towpack, mudflaps all round, and inside it’s been fitted with a more modern and further upgraded stereo with DAB
It also comes with a pretty new Exmoor trim ‘Bimini’ hood in addition to the full hood shown, the special SVX keyfob, and a fitted car cover.
MILEAGE, HISTORY ETC
Warranted 29000 miles and comes with history including replacement service book (we have the original but it’s water damaged) with 7 stamps in it (the majority either main dealer or specialist) , and a sheaf of bills, all in the original SVX pouch. We also have the rare hardback promotional brochure for the SVX. Last serviced (type B) at 28325m.
Comes with MOT to July 2021 (no advisories) and 6 months warranty on sale.
A truly special Defender, this one knocks other SVX’s into a cocked hat in my opinion
