Der alte Defender ist einfach nicht umzubringen. Jetzt ersteht er nicht nur als Ineos, sondern auch als Bowler von den Toten wieder auf:
The original Land Rover Defender silhouette will live on as Land Rover grants Bowler a license to use the iconic shape. Land Rover has given Bowler Motors, part of their Special Vehicle Operations division, permission to produce vehicles using the classic Defender shape in the next phase of development for its all-terrain performance cars and rally raid vehicles. The new agreement paves the way for Bowler to develop a new family of high-performance models, beginning with a project codenamed ‘CSP 575’ which will combine Bowler’s own rally-proven CSP high-strength steel chassis with Land Rover’s potent 575PS 5.0-litre Supercharged V8, four sports seats, a roll cage and some comfort features such as air conditioning. First renders give a glimpse of the planned station wagon, available in limited numbers from 2021, initially in UK and EU, with an indicative UK price of £200,000. Land Rover advise this project will supplement the on going motorsport developments that are the foundation of Bowler’s past, present and future plans.
