Land Rover has made a special collector’s Defender pedal car concept, previewing a full production pedal car model
that will go on sale in the northern Spring 2016.
With production of current Defender now in its final phase, the unique pedal car concept represents a fitting tribute
to the one of the world’s most iconic vehicles; the Series Land Rover and Defender has been produced in Solihull, UK,
The exclusive Defender pedal car is hand built in the UK and styled to commemorate the legacy of the first-ever
pre-production Land Rover affectionately know as ‘Huey’ given its original numberplate of ‘HUE 166’.
The concept model is constructed using a rolled–edge aluminium frame complete with individual chassis number and
personalised numberplate. It is hand finished in the same Loire Blue found on the full-scale Defender colour palette.
The show car is meticulously hand built in the UK and this exclusive version is constructed precisely to scale to
incorporate all of the Defender’s distinctive characteristics such as protective chequer plate, cylindrical running bars
and rugged off-road tyres complete with mudflaps.
The drive assembly is constructed to enable the young driver to pedal both forwards and backwards while a spring
suspension and working brakes – complete with parking brake – will allow the little one to go on many big adventures.
It’s no different inside, where engineers have drawn on their passion and experience for makining special commissions
by constructing an authentically styled dashboard, working hooter and rear stowage section with cover. A leather finish
and trimmed seats and steering wheel complete the overall design of the Defender pedal car.
Jaguar Land Rover’s Director of Branded and Licensed Goods Lindsay Weaver said: “This is both a wonderful
collector’s piece and children’s toy. It demonstrates our ability to produce goods with world class quality and attention
to detail that can emulate our world class Jaguar and Land Rover cars.”
The final production version of the Land Rover pedal car concept is expected to cost around £10,000 in the UK.
