all rise please

DESPITE the fact that we are living in a world with lots of depressing news there is one positive certainty: old Defender prices are not only holding their own, they are slowly but surely creeping up. Old Defenders are in demand like never before. When you chat to people who are in the business of buying and selling them, they concur. Is there any other mass-produced mainstream vehicle (with a starting price of around £25,000 when they were still selling them) that holds its value so well? I don’t think so. If there is, please do let me know. Some doomsayers predicted the old Defender bubble would burst when the new one came out; that was over a year ago now and the opposite has happened. I’ve had my rare 1998…

Defender of the faith? I’M a fan of your magazine and look forward to receiving it each month. I have the privilege of working for JLR, so you can call me biased, but I take exception to the letter from John Brown concerning Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS. I’m somewhat taken aback by the fact that you’re Land Rover Monthly and yet you have printed this. I understand that you have probably done so in the spirit of unbiased reporting, but it’s still a poor show! Why would JLR allow this company to set up in competition using their own product? They have a reputation to protect and have done so why would they allow that iconic name to be used by any other manufacturer? I also take exception to the comments surrounding…

When it was revealed three years ago, forums were awash with enthusiasts debating if the rear end was left to the office junior. The styling certainly split opinion – with a disproportionate amount of bodywork to glass ratio down the side and a butt ugly rear compounded by the off-centre number plate. It was not the handsome successor to the Discovery 4 everyone hoped it would be. It wasn’t the sales success that JLR were betting on…

old defender makes costly comeback

REMEMBER when they announced the pricing for the new Defender and Land Rover enthusiasts around the world accused Jaguar Land Rover of losing the plot? Well, JLR heard your pleas of poverty and decided to bring back the old Defender (with an even bigger price tag, mind). And just how do they plan on doing that? By giving Bowler Motors (now part of JLR’s Special Vehicles Division) the right to use the iconic shape of the old Defender that we all so love and adore. Bowler Motors have codenamed this project ‘CSP575’ and it will combine Land Rover’s beastly 575 PS 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with Bowler’s tough and already-proven CSP strong steel chassis. Chuck in four sports seats, the obligatory roll cage, plus air con, and you are ready to go very…
