Yellow special edition has had a 2” subframe lift and 37” wheels, white one (Big Bertha) has 2” subframe lift and 35” wheels
Neither has “Johnson Rods” to trick the suspension IIRC.

I liked the wheels even better when I thought what turns out to be a reflection was a contrasting color. Still nice wheels.

BTW, I stuck the Union Jack on almost the same spot behind the front wheels! 2020 Defender 110 P400 HSE Santorini Black/Ebony

I believe Big Berta - the white Defender - has a combination 2" subframe lift plus 2" lift rod with 35" tires. The yellow one has a 5" subframe lift, no rods and 37" tires. 2020 NAS Defender 110 HSE 5-seater / Silver / Khaki / Black Pack / Black Roof / Satin Film / Cold Pack / Off-Road Pack / Advanced OR Pack / Comfort + Convenience Pack / Sirius + HD radio / HUD / Meridian Surround

Be interesting to know how extreme the CV angles get with these lifts, or does the diff move down as well?

Diff is lowered as well. Pretty pricey kit, but looks like it's done the correct way.
