The Land Rover Defender, a British four-wheel drive off-road vehicle designed in the 1980s from an original series that was unveiled at the Amsterdam Motor Show in April 1948, ended production on Jan. 29 2016. The new special edition Defender Works V8, with 400bhp, was revealed in January 2018. The next-generation model, which is codenamed L663, will be available in two wheelbase sizes.
The new Defender is expected to be a four-door hardtop that may be power retractable. The newest model is also expected to have current accessories like decorative LEDs up front and a customized interior.
The G-Wagen was intended as a military vehicle for the Shah of Iran, who owned shares in Mercedes Benz. The first international military to use the G-Wagen was the Argentine Army starting in 1981 with the military model 461. In 1983, a modified 280 GE won the Paris–Dakar Rally driven by Jacky Ickx and Claude Brasseur.
