The Land Rover Defender is the ultimate workhorse of Great Britain. Its implementation in war zones, emergency situations and farms have cemented its existence in place for 47 years. Today manufacturers tend to refresh a model every 2 years but throughout the defenders life the design has stayed almost exactly the same. Time for change? Land Rover are toying with the idea.
Alongside the potential “next-gen” Defender at Frankfurt is this. The DC100 Sport Concept. Essentially an alfresco alternative to the tin topped concept. The current Defender comes in more varieties than there are fish in the sea, so it is only right that this potential replacement does the same. We like the angular rear pillars and the body coloured rims. Still chunky and bold, but modern at the same time.
We shall just have to wait and see what direction Land Rover take.
