Who thinks that Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6 × 6, which was built between 2013 and 2015, the first pickup was with six driven wheels and V8 power, he was wrong. Because decades before that there was another six-wheeled off-road mutant with a V8 drive. And one Series 3 Land Rover. The green copy from the pictures has a rare one Stage 1 V8 engine built in (most of the 3 series were four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines) and the exclusive ones three-axis conversion. This Landi came out of the factory in 1981 as the standard short wheelbase vehicle of the Series 3 (109 V8) and became converted to the 6 × 6 by Townley Cross Country Vehicles. The conversion is officially called "Townley Six LR (V8)“And added another 109 inches (2,77 m) to the Defender's 30-inch (0,76 m) wheelbase when combined with a additional axis. This increased the payload of the vehicle and gave it a powerful look.

And this copy, which is in the Land Rover Center Huddersfield is on sale in the UK for $ 55.800 (£ 39.995) and is ready for shipping worldwide, one of only two copies ever rebuilt be. According to the pictures in the original brochure, it seems can not be correctly. It was probably even more Vehicles built. And this copy was even called a real workhorse used. However, the Defender was then sold in 2016, by the owner at the time, with a bespoke galvanized chassis stocked and basic restauriert. Overall, the renovation and the Restauration 2 years. And under the hood? There is no AMG engine, but it does 3,5 liter V8. However, it only generates tiredness 91 PS and 225 NM torque.
