    Rally Prepped Bowler (New) Defender

    This looks interesting. There might be some trickle down inspiration for body protection etc. for accessory manufacturers.

    This one is based on the P300. Apparently driveline is standard with a 30mm lift. They've removed the outboard radiators so cooling capacity is reduced by something like 30% but they've improved airflow to the remaining main radiator to counter act that.

    Nice having all the internal trim removed with the roll cage and recaros added. Would be great fun!

    Some interesting take aways from that for the regular hack as well, such as the factorys removal of the additional coolers and use of improved airflow to compensate.

    Sounds like a way to simplify/modify something while still achieving the same end result. I wonder if this might become standard in future production models?

    They need to win something like the unmodded class in the Dakar to really prove themselves.

    This details a bit more of the mods they did to the 90 for this comp. I like what they did with the front end. I think some of this will feed into the aftermarket game:
