    Never heard of it myself, but it's a Santana, so maybe they built them and Land Rover in the UK didn't?

    It was built by Santana and sold in military markets who were not on the UK's friends list.

    Did they sell many? Looks like a waste of effort really , not particularly lightweight and no different from the regular model in terms of cumbersomness (possibly made up word).........

    I think that they were designed to be simple and rugged rather than light.
