Land Rover’s cheapest car ever packs a small surprise

Land Rover announce an entry-level model for just £10,000, but is it the bargain it appears to be?

The cheapest new Land Rover on sale has been revealed at last week’s monumental motor show in Frankfurt and, although it’s just a concept right now, the Solihull based company says it will be going on to production.

Priced at around £10,000, the new Land Rover will be hand built in the UK with retro styling to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Defender.

Constructed using a rolled–edge aluminium frame, the car is hand finished in the same Loire Blue found on the current Defender colour palette, as well as other design traits such as protective chequer plate, cylindrical running bars and rugged off-road tyres complete with mudflaps.

Inside there will be an ‘authentically styled dashboard’ with hooter as well as a rear stowage section with cover. Naturally, leather will cover the seats and steering wheel.

Each will get a unique serial number as well as an inclusive personalised number plate.

Under the metalwork you’ll find a drive assembly that allows both forward and backward motion, with spring suspension and working brakes – including a parking brake.

Power is provided by the legs of a child pedalling furiously for performance or, if a more leisurely driving style is required, nonchalant pedalling will suffice.

Yes, as exciting as this all sounds, it’s a pedal car for children. Sorry dads.
