Land Rover Brings DC100 and DC100 Sport Concepts to 2011 L.A. Auto Show

Land Rover DC100 and DC100 Sport Concepts
Land Rover has decided to bring its DC100 and DC100 Sport concepts to the L.A. Auto Show to gauge American interest for each vehicle. Both models are trims of what is the next-generation Land Rover Defender, according to the British carmaker. The production model could show up sometime mid-decade.

The Defender is to Land Rover what the Wrangler is to Jeep: It’s the iconic core identity for the brand, and, ironically, it isn’t currently sold in the U.S. The DC100 and DC100 Sport (a canvas-roof trim) point to the future, with fancy off-roading tech such as sonar technology that measures water depth and sensors that calculate whether or not an obstacle is traversable.

Is it really necessary for every car manufacturer to show their cars on the PCH just south of Pt, Mugu? Not only them, in fact: Ing Direct used that stretch of road a year or two ago for some TV adverts.

The LR Defender is a no non-sense off roader. These look too trendy, like a weekend toy for going to the beach.
