Now an official member of the Jaguar Land Rover family, Bowler has unveiled its latest project, the Bowler Defender Challenge. Based on the Defender 90, the Defender Challenge is powered by a 295 hp 2.0L turbocharged engine and features a full rally kit with an FIA-standard roll cage, modified underbody, a custom Fox suspension, rally-spec 18" wheels, and column-mounted paddle shifters. They have also equipped the Defender with fire protection, electrical cut-offs, competition race seats, a repositioned gear selector, and a modified front end for increased airflow.
Each 2022 Challenge will include a Bowler-spec Defender Challenge car and an entry into the 2022 Challenge Series in the UK.
