The new Land Rover Defender is finally back after a 23-year absence – but that’s not all. You can now option it with a collapsable roof tent for maximum outdoor adventures.
For the Land Rover Defender 110, roof top tent company Autohome created a bespoke roof tent that fits snugly on the car’s roof. When it’s not in use, the tent is protected by a fibreglass shell, according to a company press release.
To erect the tent, you just have to unclip the fastening at the rear and lift the shell lightly. Once it senses the movement, integral gas struts will handle the rest, fully opening the fabric sides. Land Rover says the entire process can be done single-handedly and in a matter of seconds.
The tent can sleep two adults on a full-size cotton mattress. It comes with pillows, an interior LED light, and a stowage net.
Land Rover says the tent is priced at 3,081 Euros, which is approximately $US3,500. A Land Rover spokesperson said that interested customers can order the tent through Autohome directly.
