Why the hell would you do that? Waste of time... Waste of a defender. I hope that wasn't a Nas.

Did anyone notice the tiny little chrome camel at the base of the grill. At 1:56. A Freakin' Camel! Are we supposed to get the hint that they want to convey camel trophy lineage? Really? It could burn out in the staging area and get stuck in gravel as they leave the asphalt! ;-) Oh, the Camel is on the introductory speaker's logo shirt. Is that THEIR ICON?

1- Ugly
2- I feel sorry for the LandRover that's stuck inside it.
3- Buy a freakin Miata for cryin out loud.
4- Its not really fast.
5- All heritage is lost.
6- These crews should try building something really useful. (Rally/Desert racer)
7- Every shiny badge you put on it makes it worse.
8- These crews should have some backbone and stop building shit for tasteless morons.

Yeah, I don't see the logic either. Maybe the strategy is to put something out there different enough to churn discussion and tube hits. If so, that part might be working.

Cool down guys. Andrew builds first rate Defenders for world wide clients. His expedition vehicles are first rate.
I have seen this 90 in person. While its not everyones cup of tea, its a show off truck. He built it because he can, and because he wanted too.
I went for a drive in one of his tuned TDCi and it was drifting on a roundabout. Scary as hell and very impressive performance from a Diesel.
If they have the talent and time to tune a truck to see what it can do just for the fun of it, why the heck not. Its not a for sale and hope to get orders vehicle. Some people like to think outside the box. Open your mind.
