That looks ok 👍

I guess they will release a SWB , LWB , pickup etc as part of the family .
I hope they get it right as their future may well depend on it.

No matter how good the new Defender is they’ll need an awful lot more than it to secure their future.

From reading the article it seems as though Herr Bräutigam has had lessons in how to waffle to the journalists.

More shots of the new Defender, now the short wheelbase version: https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new- ... lbase-form

I really can't decide if the roof profile above the windscreen is real or not, looks like it might be part of the van sides - loads of camo on this vehicle!

My other half was up in Aviemore / Pitlochry area in Scotland looking at houses in that area the other week and saw similar to that one above heading off towards the hills on the road towards Braemar. Said it was hugely covered in camo too. It must be out testing now.

Yes they are, there's several shuttling back and forth from Whitley to Gaydon.....I'm seeing them almost daily.

What I can confirm, is in the evening they practically blind you on the A423 coming towards you at speed, as they appear to have the same laser headlights as the D5. The beam is exacerbated by all the ticker tape wrapping the front, and I had cause to flash back on Monday evening, as they were dazzling.

Autonews Europe saying it won't be built in the UK. Hopefully just wishful thinking/leaking by the ambitious Nitra management team.

It was never going to be built in the UK, the business case didn't add up with the low volume and UK production costs. I would say it's the main reason Nitra was built, the (complete) Discovery move was a bonus.
