    A nice Landy is a lovely thing to see. I haven't seen the new one yet, nasty is it?. The Brabus has a market I guess, hey I'll bet those 10 are already sold to a few super rich (in ego and cash)! Still though, I bet us on this forum are the last generations to see a V12 put in a car. I'd think even the M273 has a limited life now, buy one while you still can (or a G Wagon if you have the dosh and no style :D )!!

    Im not sure what to make of it.. It is a total waste of a vehicle as it has superb off road potential but the reality is none of them would ever go near getting scratched and muddy due to their cost.
    I did get to go in a 3l diesel one, interior was very nice and was surprised how quick it was..
    A far more sensible option would be to save 100k and a buy a Suzuki jimny "g-wagon" .
    This is one little 4x4 that celebrates its 50th birthday next year.

    There are so many body kits available for this little 4x4.. Saw a new? g63 2 door rendering recently, I swear they have literally copied the jimny !
    But how good does this look ? jimny-blak-bison-feature.jpg

    Well well Lostkiwi, actually they seem to have put some thought into that new Defender. Has a slight look of the old one, I'm sure it'll fly out of the showroom but never ever see any real offroading from the owner!
