Jeep Trailcat: Hellcat-powered off-roader capable of crawling or high-speed runs

The Jeep Trailcat concept vehicle is the ultimate off-road machine, equally at home on Moab’s rugged trails or a high-speed section. Utilizing the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8 engine, and mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with a custom shifter ball featuring an embossed Hellcat logo, the Trailcat concept vehicle leaves everything else in a cloud of dust.

Jeep-Trailcat-2To get the 707-horsepower Hellcat engine into the Trailcat, designers stretched the wheelbase an additional 12 inches while chopping the windshield two inches for a sleeker look. Mopar exterior enhancements include a power-dome vented hood, Satin Black grille, LED headlamps and fog lamps and rock rails.

The robust off-road look is further aided by steel front and rear bumpers, 17-inch beadlock wheels and 39.5-inch BFGoodrich Krawler T/A KX [...]

The Nene Overland Expedition Team are very excited to announce that we are now building CHASER Travel Trailers.

Nene has always offered a range of Travel Trailers to their clients for Expeditions and Overland Trips but the new CHASER range offers a very flexible platform that can be fully customised to a customer’s requirements. From a bare chassis (EU road legal) to a fully kitted Expedition trailer with roof tent, water tanks, solar panels, full kitchen and fridge and everything you could possibly need for an extended overland trip.

The CHASER range also comes with a selection of hitch and hub options to match your towing vehicle. So if you have a Defender 90 with NATO hitch the Chaser can be built with matching towing eye and Defender Hubs so that you can use the same wheel/tyre combination on your trailer as your Land Rover has.

VB Air Suspension

Nene Overland is delighted to announce that we can now offer the full range of VB Air Suspension Systems for the Land Rover Defender 90, 110 and 130.

VB Air Suspension offers increased comfort, better driveability and enhanced safety. On and Off-Road. The Defender package adds full air suspension to each corner (both front and rear axles) or just to the rear axle and can be fitted to new, nearly new and all used Defenders. It is fully adjustable from the cab to provide the optimal ride height from +55mm to -110mm and also aids load carrying stability.

VB Full Air

The VB Full Air system comes with an electronic control unit that automatically monitors and corrects the vehicle’s ride height. This process of constant monitoring and correction ensures safer vehicle handling and increases comfort while being unaffected by the load being carried.

Jeep-Grand-Cherokee-HellcatJeep CEO Mike Manley confirmed to writer/driver Brian Makse at the Detroit auto show this week that the Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat would be available before the end of 2017. Make then broadcast the news through his YouTube channel (see below).

The Hellcat will feature the 700bhp version of Chrysler’s 6.2 litre Supercharged V8, the same lump that propels the Charger and Challenger. Some reports last year suggested that the All-Wheel-Drive platform of the Grand Cherokee would not be able to harness the full power available but Chrysler’s engineers have obviously rubbished this fear. Not only does this trump the likes of BMW and Porsche with their SUVs offering 500bhp+ but it trumps it in a very big way indeed. Even the Range Rover Sport SVR cannot achieve that kind of performance.

Jeep are officially stating a 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds!

But why wait until then? Nene [...]

zero-percent-loanWe are very excited to announce that Nene Overland can now offer 0% Finance Deals on selected vehicles.

We were already offering a range of very competitive finance options from a range of specialist providers that could be tailored to our clients’ requirements when buying a vehicle from us but now that we’ve added the 0% deal we think we’ll be able to get more people into their dream vehicle.

In some cases you may be able to include the fitment of aftermarket modifications and accessories but we can [...]

The 2millionth Land Rover Defender sells for £400,000

Watch the entire sale in our video

Last night I had a dream except it wasn’t a dream, this really was a Land Rover Defender selling for £400,000!

Upon arriving at Bonhams Auction house in New Bond street London, I was greeted by a champagne reception and what can only be described as the cognoscenti of the Land Rover World. HUE166 was there in all of his green glory surrounded by the people you only normally see in magazines and press releases including Roger Crathorne, Stephen and Nick Wilkes to name but a few. However I digress, the star of the show was none other than the 2 millionth Defender to roll off the production line of the hallowed halls at Lode Lane.

The aura surrounding the venerable little 90 was amazing with celebrity build crew, one off parts and a couple of rather natty plates detailing the build number and all those who had a hand in putting it together. Eventually [...]

It’s a Defender 130 like no other

Red Bull build a unique promo vehicle from a Defender 130

red-bull-reveals-armored-event-vehicle-with-stealthy-look-land-rover-defender-chassis-102244_1Red Bull are one of the world’s most active brands and are involved in all manner of sports, events and activities around the globe. To accompany them on their various travels they have quite a collection of planes, boats, cars and trucks. They are no stranger to the Land Rover Marque but their latest addition to the Red Bull Fleet is something else entirely.

It might not be immediately apparent what this is underneath but we can assure you that it is, in fact, a Defender 130.Built in Australia the bodywork consists of several interlocking triangular panels. The end result is very striking and the design of the panels gives is the appearance of a stealth bomber.

Originally it was meant to be liveried in their usual Red Bull Blue but we think you’ll agree the adoption of matt black was the correct decision.

New Defender not expected until 2019!

New model to be offered in five body styles

New Defender

New Defender: It should come as no surprise to anyone that the current Land Rover Defender will soon cease production and if you haven’t already placed an order for one of the last ones you are definitely too late. The prospect of enduring two fallow years being Defender-less was a bad enough prospect for some as it was but it looks like we could actually have to wait until 2019 to get behind the wheel of whatever Solihull HQ roll out as the Defender replacement.

Rumour, counter-rumour and massive speculation will certainly keep the Defender legend alive in the meantime but there are, at least, a few details that we know for definite about the New Defender:

Five Body Styles

It looks pretty certain that Jaguar Land Rover will offer the New Defender in five different body styles: two short-wheel-base variants, one long-wheel-base station wagon and two pick-ups, one [...]
