Land Rover becomes moon rover in these 3D concept images
We all know Land Rover for its excellent SUVs, but what is to become of the company in the long run? Will it be able to stay true to its way, or will it have to adapt to survive in a changing market? This is the kind of questions 3D artists casually ask themselves when they draw concepts like this one.
Invented by transportation designer Edwin Senger, the Back Packer is the ultimate off-roader that looks like it could very well have been designed by the British SUV maker itself. It bears a certain resemblance to a moon rover, but the author claims it isn’t meant to break free from Earth’s gravity pull. Instead, you can drive it to the Blue Planet’s remotest and hardest-to-reach places.
The Back Packer sports an easily removable soft top and can therefore quickly turn into an open-top ride. When the sun finally reaches the horizon after another exhausting day at the expedition, you can spread a tarpaulin over the cabin and fold the seats, turning the vehicle into a comfortable camp tent.
Senger does not mention any kind of drivetrain, but our best guess is ‘all-electric’.
For obvious practical reasons, the tires are solid.
Regrettably, even if a vehicle like the Back Packer ever makes into production, it won’t have quite the same looks and feature list.
