Al Tayer Motors, the UAE’s official Land Rover importer-dealer, has created a one-off ‘Shamal’ Defender through its Vehicle Customisation Centre in Dubai.

We are working to produce more such unique vehicles across our other brands as well and hope to be able to share more details in due course,” said Ashok Khanna, Chief Executive Officer, Al Tayer Motors.
