The Bowler Beaut Bulldog Edition Is the Ultimate Off-Roader Pickup Ute We Can’t Have

Maybe here is how: go to the UK. Take some time to work out every aspect of the Bowler Bulldog’s working bits engineering. Go home, salvage a crashed F-Type for the V6, get an old enough Defender, and go for it.

I know it’s not helping that I keep talking about awesome cars that are, for some outdated political reasons, not legal in America, but let’s be fair: Europeans also waited half a century for the Mustang to arrive to their local Ford dealers. I blame the world we live in.

The Bulldog is perhaps the late Drew Bowler’s best creation. A short-wheelbase Land Rover Defender double cab pickup, complete with a supercharged 3.8 V6 from a Jaguar F-Type at the front. If you like how the F-Pace S drives, imagine that power in a platform that will keep blasting through any terrain. That’s the Bulldog, in a nutshell.

0-62mph in 5.4 seconds, 0-100mph in 14.2. Not that impressive, you say? Wait until you get it on a loose surface. Also, it will do the jumps. Like, all of the jumps.
