The Last Overland Expedition Reaches The Finish Line In London And Is Greeted By A Unique New Defender To Celebrate Their Achievements

LONDON, UK DECEMBER 2019 – The Last Overland, a team reversing the famous 1955 Oxford & Cambridge Far Eastern Expedition have concluded their journey from Singapore to London.  

There to meet them at the finish line – just steps from the original expedition finish line in 1956 - was a New Defender 110 with specially commissioned Oxford & Cambridge Expedition livery. The new Land Rover came face-to-face with “Oxford” the 1955 Series I Land Rover which completed both the 1955 and 2019 expeditions.

 The Last Overland was supported by Land Rover on a large number of stops along their 114-day expedition, including the flag-off in Singapore in August whilst more recently the Overland team visited Nitra, Slovakia where the New Defender is built.

The special livery was commissioned in the original Oxford Blue & Cambridge Blue, alongside Oxford & Cambridge Expeditions lettering on the door – both being features of previous expedition vehicles. This was complimented with the use of the Last Overland’s branding to provide a fitting welcome to the team.

 

Alex recounts, “This journey has definitely been an action packed one, filled with many ups and downs, and I can’t believe how quickly the eighteen months that went into planning this journey has brought us here, all in one piece so far! We’ve managed to drive this incredible 64-year-old car once more, to so many remote and fascinating parts of the world, through tropical monsoons, -20 degree and at more than 5000m above sea level. Oxford has taken it all in stride. From Nagaland to Tibet, from Turkmenistan to Serbia, the welcome we’ve received has been unbelievable.”
