The Defender has been the choice for military transport in most countries ever since the first Land Rover disembarked in 1948. It’s simplistic design for extraordinary ability in strength and durability was necessary and the results were overwhelming. It was reported that up to two third of those Rovers still run today.
Back in the days when everything looked huge and great, seeing trucks wading in deep muds were very compelling. Staring at the wave dispersing was more exciting than riding in the truck that created it. Appealing may my dad’s car be with the wave wavering elegantly off the sides and helplessly from the front usually resulted in worried faces. This does not seemed to be the case for Defender owners. They were always spotted confident and assured of their vehicle’s limit for the reason that mother nature has thrown far worst terrains to conquer at it when Land Rover were testing the debuting prototypes.
By the genesis of Land Rover’s forward-thinking philosophy, an overnight sensation was spurred by the original Range Rover. It had all the capability of a Land Rover with the comfort and performance of an on-road car. It was remarkable.
Enough of Defender.
Enough said of its obvious capabilities.
So let’s talk about you experiencing one.
Today, we marvel at the rate of technology increment. Most probably due to a tonne of life-less scientists stubbornly refusing to take a break and have a Kit Kat. In fact, we are often too busy trying to make something out of our lives that we miraculously forget the meaning of vacation.
Here’s a general rule of thumb, if you are looking for something different in your life. Something rather exciting or as thrilling as a roller-coaster ride or even both, get a Defender. Unravel that genre of great technical mysteries and build a Defender you’d love to experience. A Freelander works as well too, that is, if you have the time of the world and the aristocrat’s need for comfort. Or maybe A Discovery, if your life is just too overcrowded with family members but work loads. Or a Range Rover if you’re the Queen of England.
