Nothing lasts forever, but some things come very close. Land Rover’s Defender reigned over hill and dale for 67 years, with production finally ending in Solihull in 2016. The Defender – known by that name since 1983 –defeated fashion while somehow epitomising it and becoming synonymous with the nation that created it. Two million were built since 1948, when the Series 1 arrived, utilising a post-war surplus of aluminium. It’s amazing to think that an estimated 75 per cent of Landies ever built are still running somewhere on the planet.

A winch is the first accessory any self-respecting Landy owner should fit. It’s only right that a perfectly formed miniature die cast defender hangs from its keychain ready to go.

Unlike a normal car, a Defender has a second gear lever to select hi or lo diff depending on the terrain. We’ve gone one better, offering the driver three gear knob bottle stoppers to select from to keep the wine fresh.
The ultimate multi tool
Defenders have come in endless variants for different uses – long or short wheelbase, pick ups, hard tops, rally, safari, military – you name it, they’ve made it. This credit card sized multi tool has a range of handy functions designed to get you out of a fix… just like the real thing then.
