Land Rover Defender: Exploring the wilds of Africa

The Hoarusib River was flowing hard. Although the country has been in drought for going on seven years, some heavy rainfalls in northern Namibia - on the south-west coast of Africa - have turned this ephemeral river into a torrent of water, coloured like chocolate milk as it clawed against the dry river banks...

Land Rover Defender Old v New Comparison: 1983 110 County v 2016 110 Adventure

Land Rover Defender old v new comparison: 1948 Series 1 v 1991 Defender 90 v 2016 Defender 90 Heritage Edition

The story of Land Rover is a tale for the ages. The brand launched way back in 1948 in the shadows of World War Two, and it’s clear that the inspiration was the army-spec Willys jeep. History tells us that the Land Rover – as the original model was known – was only supposed to be built for a few years until parent company Rover had enough cash flow to sort out its luxury car offerings...

1997 Land Rover Defender 110 (4x4) Review

You read the jurno reviews, that all tell you how uncomfortable on the road the Defender is. Have they ever driven one 14 hours a day for weeks on end?

A Defender is a unique, very special vehicle with a brilliant history. Whilst it is unstoppable offroad, it is still pretty good on road, and many pristine examples on the road today would never see the dirt.
