Land Rover Unveiled X-Tech Defender

Maybe the military prowess of the Belgian is not much known compared with their beer and waffles. But Brussels is also the seat of North Atlantic Treaty Organization or NATO. NATO was an organization which was established as a united front to fight the Communist bloc, and still stands today as one of the most formidable nations alliances. This is why Belgium is a perfect place to launch the paramilitary type vehicle from Land Rover, the X-Tech Limited Edition.

This vehicle will be as though as a Hummer or Jeep, as the X-Tech is based on the Land Rover Defender. It is one of the most rock solid rock crawlers that ever devised. The car is available in either silver with three door defender 90 form, on in olive green with five door defender 110 long. Both offset by black roof, wheel arches, new sawtooth alloys, and interior.

This is actually not a big upgrade to the standard model, but I thikn this is enough to give it the attitudes it deserves. Land Rover X-Tech was announced at the Brussels Motorshow. It is unfortunately unavailable for the North American Market.

Because of that, the parade for small car begins. A theme to get-small was widely shown in the North American International Auto Show this week, at the Los Angeles auto show last November, and the line of small cars arriving in many America’s dealer showrooms. The automakers are sinking billions of dollars to produce small car, and they hope that buyers will welcome it.
