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. A full length bonnet, revised grille, plus the fitting of wheel arch extensions to cover wider-track axles are the most noticeable changes. 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.
This Defender 90 2.4TD XS is an exciting opportunity to own a rare and amazing example of the iconic Land Rover Defender with Twisted Performance P10+ upgrade to 182bhp and an automatic gearbox. This is one of the best looking Defenders we have seen and is in fantastic order.
