We’ve never run a manufacturer-supplied car before. We don’t have a long-term fleet. Given as there’s only Dan and me fronting this thing, it would represent a somewhat ambitious use of that term in any case. We and our contributors do write about our cars but that’s the point, they’re ours.

But this one isn’t. It’s a grey Land Rover Defender with 10,000 miles on the clock, which is about the mileage at which most manufacturer press departments would already be thinking of knocking it out through the dealer network if it had not done so already. At that mileage they’ve already been seen in most of the useful media, they’ve often been replaced by model year updates so are obsolete in part at least and no manufacturer wants the press thinking they can’t afford to have new cars on their fleet.
