Land Rover used to run an intense annual cross-country driving challenge to show off the capabilities of their 4x4s. We’re talking long slogs epic landscape panoramas and lots of digging in the mud. A real event hasn’t been hosted in years, but some creative fans found a practical way to bring it back.
The detail on these R/C Land Rover Defenders is good enough that if you squint, stand on one leg, and look at your computer from a few feet back you just might believe you’re watching the real thing.
But who cares! The workmanship and capability of these tiny trucks is so impressive I think they’re still cool to look at even if you couldn’t fit inside.
