PLASTIC FANTASTIC
Hopefully not another “Frog & Rostbif”

It must be nice to have so much money that if there’s a car model you really miss, you can simply have it built. Then again, Ineos CEO Jim Ratcliffe wasn’t exactly knighted for free.

The whole thing has a flip side – on the one hand, the Brits are likely overjoyed to keep their Land Rover “Defender” even though it was removed from the manufacturer’s programme in 2019. On the other hand, reactions are likely to be somewhat less than joyful if the Defender’s successor – aptly named “Grenadier” – isn’t built in Solihull, a UK location steeped in the tradition of automotive art, but rather in France. Specifically, in Hambach, where the off-road-antonym “Smart” was conceived.
