The car sports all the design characteristics of a real Defender, like chequered protective plates on fenders, cylindrical steps and off-roadtires.The small car was made from aluminum and pained in Loire Blue from the list of Defender's original colors. The interior was also given special attention, so the car is a faithful copy of the original. The drive train is set up so it will enable young drivers to pedal forwards or backwards, on spring suspension with off-road tires and with efficient breaks, which enable safe adventures along the wilderness in their back garden.

The concept will become a mass produced pedal powered little car in the beginning of the next year, hand-built in Great Britain. Each sample will have a VIN number and personalized number plate, and will cost about £10,000.
