I understand Willk has got a couple on pre order! to tow his Redbay demonstrators.

I am not a lover of Landies as such but I think the Defender design is the work of an Artisan. I can't look at one without thinking how much it looks fit for purpose. I think its a shame they changed the design especially for this one which I think looks like the Village Peoples tour bus

I will be interested to see that with a cherry picker, bales of hay / sheep in the back, pushing gates open on farms, wading through rivers, working in a quarry etc. I do not understand why manufacturers don't offer what the working market wants, a basic practical , easy to maintain , simple vehicle? We don't need another Discovery / Freelander / Tarts Handbag.

The type of Farmers round here would soon "Knock the Edges"off that thing!
Plenty of US!...(or at least some)... often need a Heavy Duty Dry Bag....and NOT a Crap made over expensive Gucci Glad Bag!
Shame to see another British Icon go...more to the point..I reckon they've missed a massive trick!

I must 'Defend' my fellow test-monkey! His trusty LR does just fine with the Redbay demos and when it breaks down my Mitzy does the job

No need for anything else on pre-order just yet.
