What's this ?

Saw this in our village today all camouflaged up ? Didn't get close enough to see but it looked like a RRS but given new model is out it must be something else

This months LRM magazine has a spy shot of a crude looking modified RRS body which has tiny rear doors, which they think could be the new Defender wearing a mule body... might be that?

EDIT Found this via google... same as pictures in LRM

That looks a proper botch.


If this is a real pic and not a photoshop then somebody's removed 18 inches of car from behind the driver welded back the rear quarter. On a RRS - this makes no sense. shorter wheelbase 2 seater. Hm. reminds me of that Smart Car. SVR (MY15.5)

I did say it had tiny rear doors Laughing I think it could be photoshopped, quite badly as it goes, a nasty break can be seen along the roofline but the camo patterns do line up, as do the trees above so it could equally be a genuinely bodged cut n shut.
The shots of the rear suspension, they don’t look photoshopped though, and neither do the very short overhangs, especially at the rear.

Quite possibly cut Sport bodies on the new short and long wheelbase Defender running gear.

The small diameter rims and deep profile tyres are the biggest clue to them being Defender mules. Can’t think of anything else that would be tested on wheels/tyres like those.
