The 2,000,000th vehicle is a silver Defender 90, which will have several special features including custom upholstery and, of course, logos. A team of dignitaries and celebrities, which included Tim Slessor of First Overland fame, took part in the “wrench turning” on the special Defender 90.

The two millionth Defender will be auctioned off in December.
