The Range Rover Defender Classic Carpathian EditionThe Range Rover Defender Classic Carpathian Edition
The range rover defender classic is one of the most iconic SUVs in the world. With its big-but-not-long design and genuine off-road capability, it’s the perfect choice for anyone looking for a true adventure vehicle.
What was the old Land Rover Defender called?
The Land Rover Defender started production in 1948 and has become a classic among motoring enthusiasts all over the world. With a wide variety of models available, from the 90 to 130, it’s hard to find a model that doesn’t suit your needs.
A 5.0-liter supercharged V8 — the same engine that powers Jaguar and high-end Range Rovers — makes 518 hp in this Defender. That’s lower than the 550-hp output in Jaguar’s versions but it’s still plenty of power for this car.
Despite its small size, the Carpathian Edition is packed with tech. Besides the usual infotainment, you’ll get an in-car surround-view camera that renders a 3D image of your surroundings at highway speeds.
Another feature we really liked was the live rearview mirror. You can flip it on and toggle between a reflection and a video, so you won’t have to worry about obstructing your view when loading or unloading cargo.
It also features yellow guidelines to help you steer and a target on the screen for when you’re hauling a trailer. It’s a great way to stay focused on the task at hand.
If you want to bring a classic defender home to the United States, it’s important to know how to go about doing so. According to Walton Motors, a Defender must be original and meet certain requirements before it can be shipped here.
