Has Lego just revealed the new Land Rover Defender?

Images have appeared online that appear to show the new Land Rover Defender completely undisguised - albeit in Lego Technic form.

This collectible model of the Land Rover Defender really captures the vehicle's level of refinement with its clean, modern lines and sculpted surfaces, making it a great display piece for the home or office.

While the Lego auto is modelled on the three-door short wheelbase Defender "90", the new off-roader will also be available as a five-door "110" model.

Mysterious explosion in a German cornfield was probably a WWII bomb
A huge crater in the middle of a cornfield in rural Germany is believed to have been made by a buried World War II bomb. Old bombs are not uncommon finds in Germany and elsewhere, with hundreds found each year.

Twitter user Bob's Vintage Bricks also tweeted the images that apparently first appeared on a United Kingdom toy store website. The model appears to be of the reborn new Defender, which the British firm is now testing ahead of its launch later this year. Aside from the previously mentioned winch attached at the front bumper, the new Lego-based Defender will also supposedly come with a four-speed sequential gearbox, three differentials, and independent suspension.

Brothers Brick says that this is the very first time a Lego Technic model is being made in the olive green colour and that the assembled product will be 42 cm long, 22 cm high and 20 cm wide.

The final kicker that pretty much confirms this is the look of the new Defender? According to the car-knowing types at Autocar this is a recreation of the upcoming Defender that's due for release later this year, with the Lego version going on sale shortly afterwards.
