What do you choose to do when your car is discontinued? A sigh or a purchase of another car before it stops? Recently, a Land Rover Defender true love powder gave the ultimate answer. According tomedia reports, INEOS Petrochemical Group’s boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe is a veteran defender of the true love powder, when heard that the guards will stop production, he plans to pay a large price from Land Rover hands to “take” the old guard project.
The Defender, as one of Land Rover’s soul models, obviously cannot be sold. So Sir Jim Ratcliffe decided to start building cars and formed a team to “re-cut” himself.
Just a few days ago, INEOS Automotive released a map of the Old Guard’s replacement, The Grenadier. It is important to note that the car is still in the development stage, so the new car in the picture is not the final mass production version of the model.
Meanwhile, officials say the Grenadier’s original test car will begin a year-long road test of 1.8 million kilometers, so the exact release and launch time of the new car is not yet known.
From the official map, the new car is designed to pay tribute to the old Land Rover Defender, many details of the shape can also see the shadow of the old guard.
The difference, however, is that the front face of the new car has four round lights, a longer black panel in the center, and a more regular rectangle with the headlights on both sides.
Interestingly, one of the images shows that in the future the car will also be introduced with a four-door design editing version of the pickup.
It is reported that the new car will be equipped with 3.0T straight six engines from BMW, non-carrying body, time-sharing four-wheel drive and differential lock and other configurations are also in the selection range.
In addition, Grenadier is perfectly legal because the appearance patent application for the old guard has failed.
