Bowler Is Reviving The Classic Land Rover Defender With A 567HP V8 Engine

Nov 5, 2020

Founded more than 30-years-ago, Bowler is a UK-based company specializing in transforming Land Rovers into genuine competition-grade off-road race vehicles. And though Bowler has built its name on ruggedized machines prepped for events like the Tuareg Rally and Morocco Desert Challenge, the Land Rover-owned outfit has now announced that it will be taking its wealth of off-road experience and poring it into a new street-legal version of its go-anywhere Defender dubbed the “CSP 575.”

Utilizing the same race-ready Cross Sector Platform (or CSP) chassis configuration as Bowler’s competition trucks, the V8-powered machine— which takes its name from the 575PS (roughly 567hp) its engine produces—is designed to offer a luxurious ride that’s still capable of taking on the world’s toughest terrain. Rather than retrofitting existing Defender 110 specimens, Bowler is producing new bodies from scratch, along with ruggedized suspension packages and fully-bespoke interiors. Produced in limited numbers, these vehicles will be pieced together by hand by the same Derbyshire-based expert team that prepares Bowler’s race trucks.
