FOREVER 110! Recreated Defender that’s built to last

Cover of LRO magazine, October 2021

Romping across the cover of our October 2021 edition is the stunning Defender 110 that’s been built with longevity in mind. We met its creators, YRM Metal Solutions, to discover their secrets for rebuilding and upgrading Land Rovers that last.

We also test Bowler’s new Defender rally car to the limit, and experience the off-road performance of the Ineos Grenadier to see whether this no-nonsense 4x4 can out-Defender the Defender.
