Far from being a relic of the past, the Land Rover Defender 90 still commands much admiration as the off-roader to have, be it an outing on the Serengeti plains or the Amazon rain forest. Mindful of its popularity, engineers and designers at Land Rover are running test trials of its DC100 Concept, a contender to replace the Defender 90 in 2015. Equipped with some of the most dynamic driving aids, the DC100 and the topless DC100 Sport will have the Terrain-i system to automatically sense obstacles in front of the vehicle. Another feature is the Wade Aid technology that uses sonar to determine the depth of certain watery crossings. There is also a very James Bond 007-esque spike tires function, which deploys them when additional traction is in need. See host Bradley Hasemeyer take a spin in the new DC100 in this video of the latest episode of Translogic by AOL Auto.
