Land Rover Defender dies: Production finally halted by EU rules

x 7

If you really want a Landy, they are still being built in Turkey and Iran, though with a lot of local content. The Turkish ones started off as licenced production for their Army but seem to have broken the contract, while the Iranians have what was the Spanish Santana production line - which declared UDI from LandRover many years ago and started using foreign (Hyandai??) engines and transmissions.

The Santanas had a reputation for being more reliable than "real" Landies

I wonder how easy it would be to bring one in as a personal import? With the new "Iran is nice" feeling in Government it might just get easier
