Land Rover invented and patented HDC, initially for use on Freelander 1 as it didn't have a low range, then subsequently licensing it to Bosch and Continental. 2015 90 XS SW Bowler

Looking much better at the front with that on. Great to see other colour options too.

I wonder what that bull bar is made of?

I thought rigid bull bars were banned on new vehicles some years ago?

It’s a winch mount by the looks of it not a bumper, isn’t that the difference?

Prototype vehicles are allowed to get away with all sorts of things and it's possible that it's not intended for the European market. Aus, perhaps? Darren

If you look closely at the vehicle with the bull/roo bars the bumper seems smaller and the air intakes larger, compare it with other images of bumper ends and the reflector even though it has gaffer tape on is different .You can also see the winch fairlead and the raised bar to clear the air spool on RED winches looking good so far .I wonder if the bumper on the grey one is AUS spec? What do you all think.

had read somewhere that the bumper we have been seeing so far is actually US spec... slow speed impact compliant one.

Not sure how true that is but fingers crossed the EU bumper is like the bullbar model without the bars. You can fit a bull bar to a UK car as long as its got a winch in it I believe as mentioned above... would be great up here as the roe deer are pretty suicidial at 4am in summer when I am often out and about.

It does look a lot better (and also more like a defender) with the bull bar on.

The nose/front has always been rather off-putting for me, but if a bumper (sorry, winch mount Wink ) like that is available, then I think it's a much more likely proposition.
