Land Rover Defender – DC100 Concept

Land Rover has announced the unveiling of an all-new Defender concept, the DC100, scheduled for the Frankfurt Motor Show. Intended as a modern take on the classic Land Rover Defender, the DC100 isn’t a production ready concept, as Land Rover has confirmed that a new Defender model won’t be launched until 2015. We don’t know much about the vehicle at present, and as Director of Design Gerry McGovern puts it, the concept represents “the beginning of a four-year journey to design a relevant Defender for the 21st century.” Judging from the preliminary image, it appears the Defender is about to undergo a thorough makeover.

If you want to see the car live, you will have to go to the Frankfurt Auto show in September.

The famed Spanish Colonial architecture splashed in “Bel-Air Pink” will remain, while a new interpretation of timelessness is reflected through different design themes, from American mid-century modern to the glamorous decades of the 1930s, 40s and 50s conveyed in a “fresh, youthful and elegant” manner.

Hyunday Cheats Death – Dutch Banned Commercial

One way to do that, according to this Dutch ad, is to drive a Hyundai Velostar. Or, more accurately, to be a backseat passenger. That’s because the model has three doors instead of four and the back row door opens on the driver’s side, Ad agency Fitzroy makes the point well. Maybe too well.
