Very cool.

Couple of thoughts. What have JLR replaced it with? Be interesting to know if it’s a more modern Def (Puma 2.2?) modified in the same way, or something else entirely? It wouldn’t be a little ironic if on decommissioning Defenders they used a Defender (being the world’s most versatile vehicle) to become the replacement. Whistle

Those 300W halogen search lights would be good for reversing in the dark. Wonder if FlatDog stock them? Laughing Monsieur Le Grenadier

I've not been everywhere, but it's on my list.....

Or for £22k you could have a bit space in your camper, seat 9 and still have the red paintwork....

It is certainly eye-catching but I have to say that whenever I see a 6-wheel Landrover all I see is an example of starting with the wrong base vehicle.

The only possible reason for adding a third axle (apart from purely cosmetic reasons) is to increase the permissible GVW, and if you're doing that to a Landrover of any type you should have started with a stronger vehicle.

I can understand LR building this particular vehicle since it was for their own use, and starting with a 5-tonne-plus GVW base vehicle, which would have been the sensible thing to do, would be seen as an admission that the Defender wasn't suitable, a message that LR wouldn't want to give.

Every performance aspect of the Defender has been compromised by adding the third axle, tyre wear, handling, off-road capability, etc. The only thing it can to is carry an extra tonne of water (without the tank full the GVW is within the limit of a standard Defender with HD suspension).

But it does look cool and turn heads, that is undeniable!

The sad thing about it is that a perfectly good Stage 1 V8 died to create it, and whilst it looks quite cool I bet it is awful to drive and of fairly limited usefulness. If it had been built on a two-axle 5-ton 4x4 chassis it would be a whole lot better and there'd be a highly-desirable Stage 1 V8 on the road still.
