    And just goes to show that JLR could have continued production with the original shape and still met regs.

    Not sure if it meets production requirements, is it only the limited production pass it has got?

    Cheers

    Thing is, jlr wanted rid of the defender, it didn't fit with the range anymore, not meeting regulations was just an excuse

    Didn’t realise there was such a thing, any idea on the sort of numbers a manufacturer can produce before the requirements change? Just out of interest!

    Its like the 150k Merc G-wagons or the Lambo or Bentley 4x4s, the last knockings of gas guzzling SUVs. I fully expect these to be a target for serious road tax hikes to pay for covid. Some estimates are 5k / yr and it will be hard to argue as it will be a "green" tax and if you have 200k for the vehicle and 5k for the insurance you must have 5 more for the tax. If I was spending 200k I would be outside the Tesla showroom in California waiting for a Cybertruck.

    I've got the new Jimny (together with my 110) and Land Rover could so easily have done that with Defender, would have been a world beater.
    l bet they'd have sold more than the new Defender.
    lf Suzuki can do it for under £20k, surely Land Rover could have done it for under £30k

    Jimny is great just a bit too small to be a serious contender.
    Although off road it's pretty impressive in fact it's remarkably good
    Now, if it was 25% larger.....
    There was talk of Suzuki doing a five door version but it's been withdrawn from the UK completely now.
    The waiting list was 18 months and if you hadn't got your name down by the end of 2018 there wasn't much hope of getting one.

    It's such an advance on the old Jimny, it's like the difference between a Discovery 2 and 3.

    At that price, they’re more or less giving them away, I expect the waiting list will be a couple of years at least with the high demand. Chocolate orange is a nice gesture.

    Somebody will buy them. There seems to be a lot of money around at the moment for that kind of thing.

    Every time a manufacturer brings out a new flagship "mad money" vehicle, such as the Bugatti at around £2,000,000 or a limited edition Ferrari that's not even road legal, the whole production is quickly snapped up.

    Many people who buy these kind of vehicle rarely if ever actually drive them, they just go into the barn with the 15 other exotic cars.
