She loves the classic Land Rover Defender
Just because the classic Land Rover Defender reached its end of the line in 2016, it didn’t mean that the drivers love affair with the British machine had also come to an end. One of the drivers who adore the machine is Chris Barrie’s wife. Women are the most known lovers of the defender and Barrie’s wife is the leading in the pack. Sher turned to Coventry-based land Rover engineering specialist known as J.E. MotorWorks to get an upgraded Defender with a special “Urban Pack.” According to the company, nearly three-quarters of it’s orders go to women who adore the machines. It wasn’t a surprise to them when Barrie’s wife visited them to order a Defender. The only difference that it made was that one of their upgraded defenders were going to a celebrity wife. The company also mentioned that the Defender is less enamored when it comes to its inherent quirks but they could be eradicated by the 2016 upgrades. Alecks Barrie stated that she appreciated the great visibility from a defender but riding a standard version of it felt like a workout at the wheel and was sought off slow-witted and unsophisticated. Barrie said that the handbrake also had to go. The wife of Chris Barrie also said that a defender would always be a defender and the improvements and upgrades combined turned it into a much-improved vehicle that one could live with and drive. Mrs. Barrie’s vehicle package included a button operated electronic handbrake, sound deadening, a six-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox and a compliant suspension. The horsepower of Barrie’s defender and it’s pulling power were boosted. Barrie’s wife is not the only celebrity who loves the Defender. The Queen of England has been a long-time admirer of the iconic model and she loved the machine even before there was Range Rover sport or Vogue. Jonathan Douglas of MotorWorks said that they discovered a community of women who loved the defender but were put off by a machine designed for farm transport. To get an upgraded Defender with an Urban pack including boosting the power to around 183bhp, you will require $9,000 inclusive of taxes. If you opt for a six-speed automatic gearbox, it will cost you around $27,000, but for a British machine like that, it’s well worth it.
