"Replacing the iconic Defender is one of the biggest challenges in the automotive design world," comments Gerry McGovern, Director of Design, Land Rover. "This isn't a production-ready concept but the beginning of a four-year journey to design a relevant Defender for the 21st century."

The Land Rover DC100 concept builds upon the essential elements of the car's character and allows Land Rover to open the debate and inspire people to dream about the Defenders of the future.

The new Defender's production schedule, after all the prototyping and testing procedures, will commence in 2015.
