Land Rover is all set to show this new Defender concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show which opens its doors on Tuesday the 13th of September. But don’t get carried away, it’ll be another four years before the current, and ageing, utility vehicle is replaced in 2015.
Commenting on the Land Rover DC100 concept, Gerry McGovern, Director of Design, Land Rover said: "This isn't a production-ready concept but the beginning of a four-year journey to design a relevant Defender for the 21st century."
John Edwards, Global Brand Director, Land Rover added:"We plan to engage with existing and potential customers to help us finalise the details of the new vehicle.”
In other words, Land Rover will use the Frankfurt Show to gauge reaction from the press and the public. Looks diffferent though, eh?
