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.

Next to the special color combination, the Fendi monogram logo appears on the wheels and is also stitched into the leather seats of the car. Upon opening the doors, a Fendi logo will be looking at you, placed on the bottom of the door frame in silver. Inside you will find a special numbered placket hinting at the collaboration. If you want to see the car live, you will have to go to the Frankfurt Auto show in September.
