This is a modified Land Rover Defender. That much you can already guess. It has been modified by German tuner Lumma Design to become, in its own words, a "muscle-bound off-road athlete," which is certainly one way of describing it.
While the four-cylinder diesels have been dropped
Yup, Land Rover has already updated its latest model with new engines, tech, colors, and specs. Big news, though, is the plug-in hybrid, which is only available as a long-wheelbase Defender 110 and pairs a 2.0-liter gasoline engine
Why ruin a good system?
The Porsche Taycan is an electric car. It does not have an engine. Ergo, it does not have turbochargers, which are devices that force more air into a combustion engine's cylinder to make a bigger bang when the fuel ignites. None
It stays true to its ute roots
The Land Rover Defender. I don't wish to be contrary, but I'm not really into it. I think I'm immune to the apparently insatiable excitement that surrounds its great comeback-the one that's seemingly years and arguably decades
And still we wanted to drive some more
I'm moving house in a couple of days, so this weekend was the perfect time to head off to the shops and buy a load of those plastic stackable storage crates. You know what else is useful when you're packing
The most iconic adventure vehicle
We first laid eyes on the all-new Land Rover Defender last year, and in December, Coventry Motors Corporation, the official distributor of Jaguar, Land Rover, and Range Rover in the Philippines, announced that the iconic adventure vehicle would be making its

It's not every day we get behind the wheel of a Range Rover, and it's not every day that Range Rover turns 50. To celebrate half a century of rolling out luxury SUVs, the brand has even built the limited-
Car birthdays are the best
The SLS GT3 was AMG's 45th birthday present to 'passionate performance enthusiasts and collectors.' Limited to only five units, said passionate performance enthusiasts also needed to have a healthy bit of wedge in their back pocket to get one-£360,000 (

Numbers will do for now
We'll only be able to compare the new Ford Bronco with other 4x4s-to say whether it's better or worse-when we get to drive one. Numbers don't tell the whole story, but they're as good a place
This model has no problem rolling up its sleeves

Old is gold
Obviously, a retro car will suit retro wheels. We'll see that again later in a more... American application. But the same goes for a cutesy little Euro town car. The 1975 Edition pays tribute to the year the original Cinquecento launched,
The automotive equivalent of mic drops
Coming along toward the end of each Mini Cooper generation's life cycle, we met the first GP (a supercharged fizzbomb weighing just 1,090kg) in 2006, and the GP2 sequel (a lairier, edgier prospect, turbocharged for more torque) in 2013, with
