    The Land Rover Defender is back. But before you get excited and start waving your Union flag with patriotic fervour, it isn’t as simple as that. To celebrate the firm’s 70th birthday, Land Rover has launched a run of limited edition Defender models.

    Land Rover: Look we can do a proper Defender👍🏻.
    Land Rover again: Look we can do a Crossover and put the name Defender on in and pretend the people is going to like it. 😒

    How does he know how Lord Sugar sounds like when he gets up in the morning with a hangover? And he reffered to it as a "fantastic sound" Mmmm. Superb car anyway!

      He shouldn't be removed because he's gay but because he has the most annoying voice, says stupid things and has no business presenting anything other than his resignation

    I had hoped to get some quality review of this amazing 4WD. All he talks about is the noise... and the style. Not one word about what this car is designed for: adventure and off roading. I can't imagine a worse review. Clearly this man has zero knowledge about this car.

      It does at this price. The standard Defender makes (or made) more sense at about 30% the price of a G-Wagon.
