The Defender Challenge Car costs £50,000 and takes a standard Defender 90 and upgrades the 2.2 litre turbo-diesel to 170 bhp and 332 lb ft, adds a roll cage and fire-extinguisher system and several other trick Bowler upgrades.

The car has been created to compete in a single make rally series in order to give entrants a ladder to participation in the Dakar Rally. Entry into the Defender Challenge will cost from £10,000 and takes in seven MSA Approved UK rallies from March to November.

It also look the business, don't you think?
