LEGO has officially unveiled the Technic 42110 Land Rover Defender, a 2,573-piece replica of the legendary utility vehicle and the first LEGO Technic model in olive green. We first reported on the set back in June, but today we have all the images and details. The LEGO Land Rover Defender was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show alongside the actual New Land Rover Defender vehicle. The set will be available starting October 1st for US $199.99 | CAN $249.99 | UK £159.99.
The LEGO Land Rover Defender was developed with Land Rover to get the details as close as possible to the real thing. The chassis carries three differentials and an independent suspension, as well as a working winch at the front of the vehicle.
The model has opening doors, working steering wheel and a detailed dashboard. The new transmission system has two levers for changing gears and “LEGO Technic’s most sophisticated gearbox yet.”
The model’s rear seat can also fold forward to expose the four-speed sequential gearbox. The hood of the vehicle also opens to show the six cylinder engine with moving pistons. The model measures over 8.6 in/22 cm high, 16.5 in/42 cm long and 7.8 in/20 cm wide.

Niels Henrik Horsted, Marketing Director at the LEGO Group, said: “With every LEGO element, children can build anything they can imagine. I’m very excited about this new model – a truly impressive job done by our LEGO designers. Together with Land Rover, we’ve blended elements, design and innovative engineering into a set that shows the boundless creativity of LEGO play, and that with LEGO Technic you can build for real.”
Joe Sinclair, Director of Branded Goods and Licensing at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The Land Rover Defender and LEGO brand are both iconic across the world, and the launch of New Defender felt like the perfect time to bring them together. The level of detail and engineering that has gone into creating this LEGO model perfectly reflects the work of our own designers and engineers who have been so dedicated to bringing a motoring icon back for the 21st century.”
Opening doors allow access to the model’s elaborate cabin with its working steering wheel and detailed dashboard. A new transmission system has two levers for engaging high or low ratios and a selector for changing gear – LEGO Technic’s most sophisticated gearbox yet. You can also fold the rear seat forward to view the four-speed sequential gearbox, lift the bonnet to view the in-line six cylinder engine with moving pistons and turn the rear-mounted spare wheel to open the rear door.
Reflecting the action-fueled accessories available for the full-size New Defender, the model is finished with a working winch, removable roof rack with storage box, pannier, ladder and traction mats.
