The new Land Rover Defender may be loaded with all kinds of trick technology to make off-roading easier than ever before, but there’s something about the older models that make them even more appealing.

This particular example is one of the finest we’ve seen on the used car market. Listed up for auction on Bring A Trailer, it is a 1992 model and is being sold with records of its comprehensive refurbishment, import documents, and a clean South Carolina title in the seller’s name.

As part of the refurbishment made to the Defender, it received a new hood, doors, and tailgate while also being refinished in Nardo Grey with matching wheel arches. Other key additions include a black soft top with roll-up sides, LED lighting, side steps, black badging, checker plating on the front wings, and Land Rover-branded mud flaps at all four corners.

Further adding to the appeal of the off-roader are black 16-inch Nemesis alloy wheels shod in 265/75 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A tires with white lettering. A steering damper and Bilstein shocks have also been also fitted.

Having lived out its formative years in the UK, the SUV has since been converted to left-hand drive and rocks a set of heated Corbeau front seats and four inward-facing rear jump seats. Power comes from is a 2.5-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder that had its timing belt, tensioner, injection pump, oil pan, and thermostat replaced in September.

At the time of writing, it had attracted a highest bid of $92,000. Given that the all-new, 2021MY Defender starts at $47,450 and tops out at $81,850, this might seem a little steep. Then again, refurbished old Defenders usually go for high prices, which demonstrate their desirability – and this one is no exception.

This is the Steyr Konzept tractor and while it was first showcased in late 2019, it only recently came across our radar having received a 2020 Good Design Award.

While the Steyr Konzept is very much, well, a concept, it is intriguing as it is based around a modular hybrid electric drive system that includes a diesel engine, a generator, and five (yes, five) electric motors, all of which are individually controlled.

Four of the electric motors used by the Konzept are found in the wheel hubs and get their juice from a centrally-mounted battery pack. Steyr says that “this system results in highly efficient, electric continuously variable drive, with fewer moving parts – as the mechanical transmission and hydraulic components have been eliminated – to deliver optimal energy flow with reduced power losses.”

The complex hybrid system can also recover and store energy when traveling downhill and the tractor can be easily charged through a standard socket. The use of electric motors in each of the four wheels also means the vehicle can send power precisely where it is needed, which is perfect for slippery farm tracks and grassy fields. Steyr also created the concept with a pure electric mode.

The tractor concept was named the recipient of a Good Design Award due to the creative yet practical thinking that went into its creation. This award also recognizes the Konzept’s technologies, including its innovative hybrid powertrain that isn’t just efficient but also compact.

Other intriguing technologies include a drone equipped with crop sensors that flies ahead of the vehicle during field work and transmitting data back to the cabin in real-time, as well as a Head-Up Display and an integrated display in the right-hand window.

The Honda Odyssey isn’t the most striking or desirable vehicle on the market, but for customers in Japan, it is available with a handful of upgrades from Mugen to give it some extra appeal.

The most noteworthy Mugen upgrade is a set of 18-inch aluminum wheels with a combination of silver and black spokes. These wheels will set back customers 46,200 yen ($445) apiece and buyers will also have the option of 19-inch ones priced from 51,700 yen ($498) each. Buyers will also need to buy a matching set of silver or black wheel nuts and lock nuts to suit the rims.

Elsewhere, Mugen offers a carbon fiber front splitter for the Odyssey (187,000 yen / $1,802), a carbon fiber accent above the front grille (110,000 yen / $1,070), carbon side garnish (118,800 yen / $1,145), and a rear wing priced from 66,000 yen ($636) when painted or 57,200 yen ($551) when left unpainted. Side-window visors are also on offer.

As for the interior, the Odyssey can be equipped with Mugen floor mats (74,800 yen / $721) and a luggage mat for the trunk.

Other upgrades include new front and rear brake pads, a Mugen reservoir tank cover, high-performance brake fluid, engine treatment oil, Mugen oil filler caps, a high-pressure radiator cap, and a high-performance Mugen oil filter.

The Honda Odyssey sold in Japan is different than the one currently available in the U.S. so none of these Mugen parts will be transferable.
