WE THOUGHT WE HAD done well building a Discovery 2 off-road toy for £2500 a couple of issues back, but Iain Swan’s Defender 90 that stars on this issue’s cover takes resourcefulness to another level. £575? Unbelievable. Or is it? Turn to p40 to find out... In a bizarre twist of fate we’ve also got a 110 V8 re-imagined by a guy from the West Coast of America; while a Yank-style Hummer-alike created from two Disco 2s hails from the South Coast of England. The imaginativeness alive and well in the Land Rover scene never fails to impress us! We’re sure these builds will split opinion, but that’s what the LRO team thrives on. This month we’ve mostly been having a heated debate over the Discovery Sport, having borrowed an SD4 auto…

british icon reborn

Los Angeles-based Icon 4x4 is a niche automotive company that revisits ’50s, ’60s and ’70s iconic car designs and endows them with state-of-the-art 21st century engineering. In creating Icon’s Reformers range, designer/engineer/detail freak Jonathan Ward cleverly tries to adopt the mindset of the original designers all those decades ago and imagines the vehicles they would really have liked to create if they were unconstrained by such boring details as cost and mass-production processes. And the Defender you see here is the result of that unique process. All the cars bearing the Reformers name are one-off creations, hand-built by a special team. In most cases, the vehicle body is removed from its chassis and 3D-scanned so that a custom-made chassis can be manufactured. That done, Jonathan drops in a modern powerplant and…

factory-supplied classic parts are go!

Eight years after it last tried supplying genuine parts to classic Land Rover owners via its dealer network, Land Rover is reintroducing a classic parts business under a newly created heritage division. Recognising the pride of ownership that’s kept Land Rover going over the past 67 years, Land Rover Heritage – which joins Jaguar Heritage at Special Operations – will cater for models that haven’t been made over the past decade. To begin with, body, trim and servicing parts will mainly be available for the Range Rover Classic and P38, as well as the Discovery 1 and 2, with selected parts for Series I, II and III. Land Rover Heritage aims to re-introduce more part numbers over time, manufactured using original tooling methods. They will all carry a warranty, although terms will vary…
