Rover’s most capable and durable 4x4 is taking on the ultimate all-terrain
challenge with two Defender 110 support vehicles destined for the Dakar Rally
2021. The rally is one of the toughest sporting events in the world and the
production-spec models will support ambitious new Dakar Rally and
Prodrive-backed team, Bahrain Raid Xtreme (BRX) throughout the 7646-kilometre
pair of New Defender 110 4x4s will have to negotiate extreme conditions,
traversing desert dunes, mud, camel grass and rocks as they carry vital
supplies, crew and equipment for the team and drivers. BRX’s driver lineup
includes nine-time World Rally Champion, Sébastien Loeb, from France, and
two-time Dakar Rally winner, Nani Roma, from Spain. The showroom-standard
models will also provide essential support for crew members, who will camp, eat
and sleep in the P400 models across 12 gruelling stages of desert driving.
Indus Silver models are powered by Land Rover’s 400PS straight-six Ingenium
petrol engine, featuring Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle technology, and are
fitted with the Explorer Pack, which includes an Expedition Roof Rack, Raised
Air Intake, Wheel Arch Protection and Exterior Side-Mounted Gear Carrier. In
addition, a Deployable Roof Ladder provides easy access to a roof box, which
will help BRX carry all the necessary kit. Land Rover and Jaguar are part of
Tata Motors of India.
