Such a sad 'evolution' of a 70 year old icon... don't understand why they even bothered.

I forecast it will be a sales 'flop'...


There are already noticeably fewer Defenders here in Devon.
Most of the farmers already use L200s, or Hilux crewcabs.
Also at a recent local horse trials Defenders now seem to be in the minority.

Really sad and especially as I worked for Land Rover Ltd from 1979 for 10 years. This meant I saw the development and introduction of the 90 & 110.
