Technicians from Land Rover Classic have rebuilt a bespoke Selfridges Edition Defender Works V8 in full view of shoppers to the Oxford Street store in London

The one-off soft-top Defender Works V8 will form the centrepiece of the new menswear department at Selfridges’ flagship Oxford Street store when it opens on 29 October. To fit through the first-floor window, the specially commissioned Defender was dismantled and a team of experts rebuilt the vehicle over four days.

Visit Selfridges Oxford Street store in London to see the live exhibit as a skilled team of Land Rover Classic technicians build the bespoke Defender.

The Selfridges Edition vehicle began life as a 2016 Defender 110 Pick Up but the Land Rover Classic team have turned it into a 110 Soft Top, complete with a branded hood in trademark Selfridges yellow. The bodywork is finished in contrasting Bronze Green and a heritage style folding windscreen and half-height doors complete the open-air look.
