Lot 154 - 2006 Land Rover Defender 110 TD5 Pick-Up (5.0 Litre)
|Odometer reading||11,748 miles|
|Estimate||£32,000 - £38,000|
The Land Rover Defender was launched in 1948 and, incredibly, production only finished in January 2016 after a continuous run of 67 years. Outwardly, there is little to distinguish the post-1983 vehicles from the Series III Land Rover. Internally, coil springs offered a more comfortable ride and a permanent four-wheel drive system derived from the Range Rover featuring a two-speed transfer gearbox with a lockable centre differential. A modernised interior and a new series of progressively more powerful and modern engine characterised things under the skin. The Defender was fitted with an all-new 2.5-litre, five-cylinder in-line turbo/diesel engine, badged the Td5.
This fabulous Land Rover Defender was originally registered on 1st March 2006 and has covered a mere 11,700 miles. The specification of this iconic vehicle is superb, having been fitted with a 5.0 litre V8 engine mated to an automatic gearbox. A bespoke exhaust system was made for the vehicle and not only does this Land Rover drive superbly, she sounds fantastic. Finished in silver with black leather trim and benefitting from heated seats, electric windows, air conditioning and an electric winch, this 110 Defender has all the creature comforts required to ensure an enjoyable drive. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a full years MoT test certificate and a history folder confirming the low mileage, this Land Rover is outstanding and needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.
