    Saw an episode of Vintage Voltage today where a Defender was converted to electric. Looked like a decent job. Supposedly capable of 0 - 60 in 5.5 sec, top speed around 100mph and a range of up to 200 miles if not driven at those speeds. Supposedly pretty good off road, too.
    Very slightly heavier than the original. About £40k for the parts at a guess but some quite elegant engineering solutions.

    Too technical for me but I think there is some sort of Discovery + catch up that might do it.

    That's the same outfit but I thought the Vintage Voltage Defender was black.

    Why have they turned it into a speed demon? It's just silly.
    Put something a bit more sedentary in it, it'll have a much longer range, cost less and you won't need to upgrade the suspension, brakes etc to cope with the high speeds
