New zero-emissions Land Rover Defender launched

Pedal-powered showpiece hand-built by Land Rover for collectors and kids

Land Rover has announced its intention to build a scaled-down version of the Defender to celebrate the outgoing model after 67 years in production.

The pedal-powered vehicle measures just 55 by 22 inches, but will still be priced at an eye-watering £10,000 when it goes on sale in the summer of 2016.

The must-have for any Land Rover Defender enthusiast comes complete with a “HUE 166” license plate in homage to the first-ever model built in 1948.

Even the finest details are covered from the aluminium body, leather upholstery and protective chequered plating right through to the Loire Blue paintwork that is used on the full-sized incarnation.

For added peace of mind for parents it comes fully-equipped with off-road-tyres, suspension and working brakes.

Lindsay Weaver, JLR’s Director of Branded and Licensed Goods, believes the scaled-down Defender represents a “wonderful collector’s piece and children’s toy” and that it has the quality to “emulate” its real-world compatriots.

Best to get saving now folks.
