TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Frankfurt 2011: Land Rover unveils two Defender concept vehicles

Land Rover has unveiled two new concepts that showcase the direction and thinking behind the ongoing development for the replacement of its iconic go-anywhere vehicle, the Land Rover Defender.

Named the DC100 and DC100 Sport, both models capture the flexibility, adaptability and configurability that have always been key attributes of Land Rover and continue in today's Defender. According to Land Rover, the DC100 demonstrates the future of Land Rover's capability and versatility while the DC100 Sport is an active expression of freedom and leisure.

Both concepts are based on the same 100-inch wheelbase, and feature sustainable hi-tech materials and the latest technology to optimize fuel and operational efficiency at all times, in all modes and in all driving conditions.

The DC100 and DC100 Sport include a variety of capability technologies including a Terrain-i scanning device to warn of obstacles when off-road, Wade Aid sonar technology to assess water depth and Land Rover Terrain Response System that automatically optimizes the car for any environment.
