We are going off road with this one. Big V8 (or diesel ) tough looks, Dakar street cred and British through and through. But is it cool?

I'll cast the first vote. If you make that monster street legal, it has to be sub-zero

Mad as a box of frogs as a road car . Tough as old boots and fast. It'd still look like a faintly agricultural work-horse Defender to much of the population.

Sub zero.

Sub Zero with the right paint job... Either as lurid as possible or black with some appropriate lights/highlights that are subtle but menacing...

Otherwise just cool or uncool with duff paintwork.

It is a super ugly 4x4 with lots of power. That makes it uncool.

SUVs are uncool. This is a serious piece of couldn't-give-a-damn-about-my-looks off-roader that's fast enough to catch pigeons. That makes it sub zero.

Land Rovers are cool in a way that no other 4x4s are (with the possible exception of a CJ series jeep with no roof or doors if you live somewhere sunny). One that's fast and noisy just has to be cool doesn't it?

Only cool in it's own habitat, but, like any 4x4, on the road it would be uncool

Correct! Except for the apostrophe.
Keithyboy thinks I hate everything but I still had to vote 'uncool' again here.

I never said you hate everything, I just think it takes a lot to impress you.

Who says it has to "be" anywhere in particular? So it can be cool by your own definition!
