Comments Off on The Defender Is Back! Land Rover Release Defender Works V8
The Defender is back! Land Rover recently released a new Defender, sort of! This is called the Defender Works V8. It is built as a limited edition that celebrates the Land Rover brand’s 70th anniversary and aims to recapture the market taken by the Defender customisers.
This is a limited edition run of 150 units based on selected low mileage used Defenders from 2012 to date. It’s an interesting move to see that the factory decided to “restomode” used vehicles to build these.
According to Land Rover, the idea emerged in 2014 when LR was approaching the end of the Defender production. LR recognised the gap in the market and had designed this model much earlier.

In addition, Range Rover’s latest competitor, the Bentley Bentayga, still doesn’t offer a hybrid or an electric power train. Therefore, it does make sense for Land Rover to focus on its hybrid technology.
The new Range Rover offers a wide range of colours and features. The [...]
Land Rover recently added a new model to the Range Rover product range, the Velar to fill the gap between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. Before we start, the Velar name is derived from the original Range Rover prototype of 1969. Unlike the other Range Rover models, the Velar is designed in terms of the reductionism approach. This involves simplifying the design by removing all unnecessary elements.
Thanks to the new design approach, you can feel the luxury, both in the exterior and in the interior. The new design approach involves improved attention to detail and has created a new level of luxury design for the Range Rover products.
The new centre console of the Velar is totally new to the Range Rover family. The control buttons of the centre console are [...]
