Land Rover has taken the wraps off a pedal car version of the iconic Land Rover Defender that will go on sale next year at a price of around £10,000.

Hand-built in the UK, the pedal car is a tribute to the series Land Rover and Defender produced in Solihull since 1948. It is styled to commemorate the first-ever pre-production Land Rover, which was known as ‘Huey’.

The pedal car concept is constructed in the UK using a rolled–edge aluminium frame complete with individual chassis number and personalised numberplate.

The drive assembly is constructed to enable the driver to pedal both forwards and backwards while it also has spring suspension and working brakes, complete with parking brake.

It also has a protective door sill chequer plate, running bars and durable rubber tyres that retain Defender’s traditional design characteristics.

The interior has an authentically styled dashboard, working horn and rear stowage section with cover. A leather finish and trimmed seats and steering wheel complete the overall design of the Defender pedal car.

Jaguar Land Rover’s director of branded and licensed goods Lindsay Weaver said: “This is both a wonderful collector’s piece and children’s toy. It demonstrates our ability to produce goods with world class quality and attention to detail that can emulate our world-class Jaguar and Land Rover cars.”
