The second concept car - next to the DC100 Concept - Land Rover has unveiled in Frankfurt is the sportier version, the DC100 Sport. The second concept is basically a roof-less version of the DC100 with a more aggressive appearance. It takes its inspiration from the early canvas-roofed Defenders with their fold-down windscreens, but has been redesigned as a performance concept for the 21st century.

The DC100 Sport features a wraparound aero screen and cut-down side
windows, and is painted in a special yellow inspired by the vibrant ochre hues found in Africa. On the interior, the seats are trimmed in leather with a lightweight, breathable mesh insert in a bold Tribal Tech pattern. The same pattern is repeated on the floor of the DC100 Sport where floor mats
are made of Ombrae, a sculptural medium used in art installations and modern architecture.

The DC100 Sport is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine
with hybrid compatibility mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with Intelligent Stop/Start and a transfer case.

UPDATE 01/06/12: Land Rover trooped to the 2012 Auto Delhi Expo and brought their two new Land Rover Defender Concepts dressed in a fiery Firenze Red finish. We gotta say, these new digs are all sorts of smokin’ in our eyes! Agree? Check out the gallery!

DC100 is so awesome on its exterior detailing, and it truly looks great on its body paint. I just only hope that they would really put it on the market, and I will surely be looking forward to seeing this soon.

DC100 sporty exterior looks so impressive and the design, and its platform seems so unique and really looks so good on its color. I just wonder if it had a powerful engine.

It’s like a pick up car. But the color of the car is unique and the combination color of wheels and the body is great.
