New Defender

Recommended Posts

The factory is being built in Slovakia.

I had the opportunity to discuss with a few people involved in the project and although they were careful not to say anything precise, one told me I should expect to be positively surprised.

Wait and see...

I quite like that!! Slightly longer than I'd desire but I'm sure with a few adjustments the break over could be improved....

Its the Supacat LRV400. It could be marketed with optional grp top body. Lan Rover, like with the RR in 1970, will create a new market niche: the MegaUTV.

Simple - heavier right foot to clear the obstacle. Similar power and torque figures to a 3.6TDV8 and 200kg lighter 'depending on configuration'.

Well a friend's Dad works for JLR and has knowledge of the Defender replacement. Now he knows my love of the defender and what it stands for and in his words 'I think you'll like it'. So will have to wait and see. He wouldn't give me any info when pressed sadly :P

That supacat has a strangely alluring look....Ewok lights and clamshell bonnet but still makes me think of a Toyota Land Cruiser...must be going mad.
