The Ford GT0 MKIII is too wierd looking for me, it's too long and looks like streched GT40. monocle.gif
It's cool and all, but it's one of those car sthat would make me go "wtf? mercie_blink.gif " at first glance.

I've always been particularly fond of the Mk. III over the I and II. You realize the reason for long tail/long nose cars right? And no, it wasn't for crash test standards. tounge.gif

It was long tail because it had to have trunk space. (I may be wrong though)
And the headlights and ground clearance was changed for emission standards.

Wrong. Good god it was the 60's you tard.

I suppose the Mclaren F1 GT was longer for more trunk space as well?

For some reason I think the drivers of a Mk III have other things on their mind than trunk space....

Even as a massive Subaru nut the first-gen Tribeca wasn't their best piece of work

Looks like someone didn't take their medication... moto_whistle.gif

Anyways, haha, I kind of find the new E Class coupes to be ugly, especially the facelift one. The facelifts look okay on the sedans, but the coupe and convertible, nope. Just look off to me.
Don't jump on me anyone, it's my opinion.

Hilarious.

For the record, the lengthening of the nose and tail was for aerodynamic reasons, essentially enabling a greater aerodynamic surface and therefore increasing stability at high speeds. Similarly, the changes to lights were solely for performance reasons, shaping front-end airflow to reduce understeer-front-end-oversteer transitions at high speed and make the car more controllable. And changes to ride height reflected changes made underneath the car to improve airflow.

They ugged up the front of the defender a bit, but as long as it stays square and solid axled, I'll still love it. Wish they sold them here, then again, they'd probably just be treated like G-wagons .

Ah yes, the 1965 Light Emissions act...I remember it well. IIRC that's when hydraulic suspension was invented to get cars closer to the ground and make them produce less CO2.

lol.gif That's why daytime running lamps that were introduced recently in Europe had to be LED; so that CO2 emissions are kept to a minimum tounge.gif

Okay I think that's enough now.

Woah, wait a second. I just re-read lurch's earlier post, I had no idea the Defender wasn't sold in the US.

I always assumed with its 'go anywhere' reputation and the Land Rover American dealership network that its presence was a given. Reading on Wikipedia its lack of airbags spelled the end of its US life, but it seems that is going to happen here too. cry.gif

QUOTE (Wikipedia - Land Rover Defender)
2012 updates
In August 2011, Land Rover announced an update of the Defender for the 2012 model year. By this time Land Rover had publically acknowledged that it was working on a project to produce an all-new replacement for the Defender. This would lead to the unveiling of the first DC100 concept vehicle in September that year. While emissions and safety regulations have threatened the Defender since the early 2000s, these had either been avoided through 'grandfather rights', or Land Rover had found ways to modify the vehicle to economically meet the new requirements. However safety regulations due for introduction in 2015 requiring minimum pedestrian safety standards and the fitment of airbags to commercial vehicles cannot be met without a wholesale redesign of the Defender.


@Lurch: I don't think there would be any risk of the Defender becoming a bling mobile like the G-Wagen because the interior is so utilitarian.

The only Defenders we got were a pretty small number sold from 93 through 97. I remember a friend's dad having one back then. They were pretty rare. Before that, the last "proper" utilitarian Land Rover we got was the Series III sometime back in the 74.

QUOTE (Wikipedia)
Defender in the USA


1993 NAS Defender 110
In 1993 Land Rover launched the Defender in the North American (i.e. the United States and Canada) market. Although the Range Rover had been sold there since 1987, this was the first time utility Land Rovers had been sold since 1974. To comply with the strict United States Department of Transportation regulations, ranging from crash safety to lighting, as well as the very different requirements of American buyers, the North American Specification (NAS) Defenders were extensively modified. The initial export batch was 525 Defender 110 County Station Wagons: 500 to the United States and 25 to Canada. They were fitted with the 3.9-litre V8 petrol engine and five-speed manual transmission. All of the vehicles were white (except one specifically painted black for Ralph Lauren). They sported full external roll-cages and larger side-indicator and tail-lights. All were equipped with the factory-fitted air conditioning system.



NAS Defender 90 soft-top
For the 1994 and 1995 model year Land Rover offered the Defender 90, fitted with a 3.9-litre V8 engine and a manual transmission which was clearly intended to compete with the Jeep Wrangler. Initially, the Defender 90 was only available as a soft-top, but later version was offered with a unique, removable, fibre-glass roof panel or regular Station Wagon hard-top.

In the final year of US production the engine was improved, designated 4.0 and mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. In 1998, regulations changed to require the fitting of airbags for both front seat passengers in all vehicles, as well as side door impact requirements. The Defender could not be fitted with these without major modifications, which given the small numbers of NAS vehicles sold in relation to Land Rover's global sales, were not economically viable. Land Rover retired its utility vehicles at the end of 1997 to focus on its more upmarket Discovery and Range Rover models, as well as the then newly launched Freelander.

The whole utilitarian-ness of it is sort of affected by the fine leather and expensive wood trim...

Point taken.

Plus thanks to the exchange rate, the Defender would have to be luxurious to justify its cost. The bare-bones interior would be pretty pointless when you can buy a Wrangler for so much less.

Defenders were mid $40k range back in the mid 90's. And that was a lot of money back then.

I think it would be fairly easy to be caught dead in one, all you have to do is sit inside it and you will die of sheer disgust.
