The Land Rover Defender SVX Is One Badass Custom Snow Machine

Special Edition

It's near impossible to buy one, which sucks because winter is around the corner.

Automakers with their own in-house customs tuning shops always have cool names for these divisions. McLaren calls theirs McLaren Special Operations and Aston Martin uses the Q name without apologizing to Ian Fleming for stealing it from the James Bond series. However Jaguar Land Rover has its own Special Vehicle Operations, and when it was tasked with building the world’s most badass snowmobile, it made the Land Rover Defender SVX.

Okay, so maybe the order wasn’t exactly for the most badass snowmobile, but whatever the cause, badass snowmobile was the effect.

As it is built for the snow, it features tires that are bolted to the rim, allowing them to function with unconventionally low air pressures stashed inside. Unfortunately, chances of owning one are incredibly low given that all of them have either found collectors garages, are being used as show cars, or have crashed. Fortunately one of those collectors is Harry Metcalfe of Evo magazine, and as an automotive journalist, he wants nothing more than to share the SVX with the rest of the car-loving world. Watch as Metcalfe takes us for the wild ride that is the day in the life of a Defender SVX owner.
