It seems that the suggested demise of Land Rover’s iconic Defender brand may have been somewhat exaggerated.
Thanks to a tip from the eponymous Jeremy Hackett – a fan of the Defender, he directed me to The Times (for our US friends The London Times….) on Wednesday 20.09.17 that reported the following compelling piece heralding a well funded vision to revive the brand’s fortunes: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/tycoon-plans-600m-son-of-land-rover-czp8wcv99
Cannot wait – watch out here for more details as we get them.
When researching a piece on the Defender for http://www.Aestheticons.com last year, as repeated here it seemed that the main issues were a lack of conformity with new standards for emissions etc. Resolve those issues and I suspect a heathy queue will form!
STOP PRESS – whilst we are all waiting for the new Defender to arrive why not allow you inner child to roam the country with a 1/10th scale remote control model of a Defender? Enjoy the video here Remote Control Defender
