When it comes to outrageous art cars, there’s nothing quite like the Studio Job Land Rover Defender. The Dutch art duo of Job Smeets and Nynke Tynage worked with Land Rover to create a special Defender to celebrate the model’s 65th birthday. The result is a car the artists call "a popemobile for an African chieftain."
The Studio Job Land Rover Defender was inspired by the versatility of the model itself. The artists noted how the Defender is used as everything from an ambulance in Africa to a wealthy family’s child hauler. While the art Defender was inspired by real-world vehicles, the actual car itself looks anything like any Land Rover ever made. It sports stained glass windows, atypical hub caps (the U.S. Capitol Building covers one of the wheels) and a giant tongue that sticks out of its grille.
