New Defender Photo?

Post by NoDiscoSport » Mon Jul 30, 2018 10:47 pm

Coventry Telegraph published this photo at 3.24pm speculating that it could be a new Defender prototype. Whatever it is, the wheelbase is around 500mm shorter than the Evoque, assuming 19in wheels.

Yup. It’s a mule. Hacked RRS body on test chassis and running gear.
There are far better forums to be welcomed at than this one that locks threads because certain members can’t take a bit of criticism :roll:

There’s also versions running around with an extended wheelbase, so they’re doing a 90 and 110 equivalents (or short and long wheelbase anyway if not those exact numbers).

Just had to give way to a prototype 90(ish) this lunchtime coming out of Gaydon...looked rather odd on 20" wheels being such a short chassis.

It was a 2 door with an Evoque-type back end stuck on with vinyl, lookup details with DVLC reveal the following information:
