All of our Land Rover V8 Defender rebuilds are made with the inspiration of an African wildlife. In this case, we looked at one of the most rare animals on the planet: The Black Rhino.
The Black rhino (also known as the Diceros Bicomis) is found across southern, central and southeastern Africa. Male black rhinos can reach 13 feet in length, stand over five feet tall and weigh up to 4000 pounds (2 tons). Their horns are typically about 18 inches long, although overachievers have been known to sport horns that were nearly five feet long.
