Gerry McGovern, Director of Design, Land Rover said: “Replacing the iconic Defender is one of the biggest challenges in the automotive design world; it is a car that inspires people worldwide. This isn't a production-ready concept but the beginning of a four-year journey to design a relevant Defender for the 21st century.”
Defender which has been the original rugged off-roader which was the face of Land Rover before the Range Rover, Discovery or the Evoque was created. Reviving the old boxy design with floating roof and making it look future ready with hints of Evoque; the Defender won’t look out of place when it will be launched in 2015.
