Self-drive tour operator, Celtic Routes, has announced the addition of Land Rover’s latest generation Defender 110 to its fleet of luxury Land Rovers.
The reimaged Defender has received universal acclaim not only for its off-road prowess but also for its remarkable on-road refinement. The bold, new design has evoked strong support from passionate fans of the original incarnation, whilst finding an entirely new generation of fans.
The Defender compliments the existing fleet of expedition prepared Land Rover Discovery (4 and 5) as well as the classic Defender 110 prepared by Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations owned Bowler Motors.
