He is talking about the LM002. It traces its roots to a failed Humvee competitor from Lambo.

the 6*6 is the only one in the country......
among only a few in the world
Awesome! Spectacular dude!
am a LR fan too. that 6x6 is very unique, and never knew it existed in india, taken the fact in britain also its rare.

Thumbs up CRAZY Landrover Defender Pics!!

Hi all,

I clicked these pics of this MONSTER Defender with my Nokia E71 on the way to my factory in NOIDA a few days ago..

For a while i was behind the car and could not figure out what it was till i was alongside and than was able to comprehend what i was looking at!

The ultimate "jungle rover"!!

I am aware of who the car belongs to but am not at liberty to say so.

This person has many other really cool off-roaders including a Chevy Suburban, Range Rover, Another Defender, Landcruiser, Forrester..among others!

This car was modified under his supervision as i've heard he is very passionate about his cars and is a very immaculate and impressive job...

I look forward to your comments and views on this one of a kind vehicle..

It's unlike anything I've seen before.
Do you have any information about the engine? I believe it's changed.

All in all, looks like it's done very well

Infact LR used make 6X6, and there were lot of aftermarket Mod job also i think this is one of those. But i have my doubts if it is street legal in India

I don't think he has modified it.
Refer these
::: Land Rover Madness - Have you got it? - 6x4 and 6x6 Land Rovers :::
This Fab Trek - Photography and Journey. 6x6 Land Rover Defender.

And check this, they actually made some 6X6 Defenders/Discoveries

The Land Rover History

Thanks

Yup, this 6x6 belongs to "xtreme power" and is currently on its way to the Himalayas for an annual family offroading trip. Don't forget to get us some excellent pictures, Allen!

The interesting trick with such a 6x6 is how to get drive to both sets of rear wheels.
