The Discovery Sport HSE Dynamic Lux is not the only premiere from Land Rover for this year’s edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show as the Tata Motors-owned company also has on display a pedal car concept based on the Defender. You read it right, it’s a four-wheeled toy for kids and although for the moment it is billed as being a concept, Land Rover actually has plans to sell it to children whose parents are extremely generous as far as spending money on toys.

The production version will go on sale in the spring of next year and is being previewed through this concept that has been handcrafted at home in United Kingdom. The styling of the pedal car represents a throwback to the first pre-production car built by Land Rover which had a “DUE 166” license plate and it’s affectively known as the “Huey.”

As you can see from the attached images, the pedal car is extremely detailed and wears a Loire Blue paint sourced from the full-scale Defender’s color catalog. It comes with a realistic front fascia and a rolled-edge aluminum frame while the retro-styled wheels have been wrapped around in off-road tires. It actually has a spring suspension, fully functional brakes and a nicely done interior covered in leather and featuring what Land Rover is describing as being an “authentically styled dashboard” along with a steering wheel and trimmed seats.

It is important to mention the pedal car’s drive assembly was made to enable young drivers to pedal both forwards and backwards and there’s also a parking brake incorporated. Each unit will come with a personalized license plate as well as an individual chassis number and even mud flaps.

If you were hoping this would be affordable, we have some bad news for you as the final production version will carry an estimated starting price of £10,000 (1 million INR).
