Land Rover Great Britain has gone ahead and detailed a new Special Edition of its Defender SUV. Dubbed XTech, it is covered in unique Nara Bronze or the Orkney Gray offered on other models.

The package also gets a black roof and wheel fenders, which are filled by 16-inch gloss black Saw Tooth alloy wheels surrounded by aggressive MTR off-road tires. Adding to the rugged look are black diamond plates beside the bumper and sills. There is a rear badge identifying the model, and black headlamp surrounds replace the originals. A step bumper is installed in the rear as well. The interior is part-leather Ebony and other changes amount to embossing on the front seat headrests and unique floor mats. The center console is painted in a body-matching color.

Standard equipment of the XTech includes air conditioning, ABS, Electronic Traction Control, central locking with remote control, and heated seats and windscreen.

The trim can be had on either the 90 Hard Top or 110 Utility Wagon. The SUV is powered by a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine and has a six-speed manual as standard.

The truck will arrive in U.K. showrooms later this month, priced at £27,995 (about $43,300).
