Land Rover has unveiled the DC100 concept which previews the upcoming next-generation Defender.

The model will debut to the public at the Frankfurt motor show in two weeks and Land Rover will likely provide more details then.

Says Land Rover's director of design, Gerry McGovern:

"Replacing the iconic Defender is one of the biggest challenges in the automotive design world; it is a car that inspires people worldwide. This isn't a production-ready concept but the beginning of a four-year journey to design a relevant Defender for the 21st century."

Land Rover has confirmed that production on the next-generation Defender will begin in 2015.
