See what I did there? You should also see this beautiful restoration video and how happy the truck made Marley's kids. » 2/09/15 2:16pm 2/09/15 2:16pm

(Update) Awesome Land Rover Defenders Spotted On Set Of Bond Movie

As Land Rover slowly, expensively, and by some measure dramatically puts an end to its historic Defender model, bad guys around the World will have to look elsewhere for a decent, rugged, tough, go-anywhere, kill-anything, on-and-off-roader.

Report: New Land Rover Defender Design Is Done, Looks Nothing Like DC100

Twisted do Gumball - Day 1

Let me tell you about the first day of Gumball 3000 and what it was like in a Twisted Defender.

2011 Land Rover Defender LE Is Properly Thuggish

The addition of 16-inch "Saw Tooth" alloy wheels and new paint is barely newsworthy, but the new Defender LE looks just that badass. Three of these and we can conquer Argentina again, mates. Then we'll never pay for Quilmes again. » 1/14/11 9:00am 1/14/11 9:00am
