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. In August 2011, Land Rover announced an update of the Defender for the 2012 model year. By this time, Land Rover publicly acknowledged that it was working on a project to produce an all-new replacement for the Defender. Then in line for the 2012 models was the installation of a different engine Ford decided, due to cost reasons, not to modify the engine introduced in 2007 and so the engine was replaced with the ZSD-422 engine, essentially a 2.2-litre variant of the same engine.

This fabulous 110 Defender was originally registered on 24th March 2011. It has just had some £36,000 spent on it turning the vehicle into a brute to drive. The engine has been replaced with a brand new 5.3 litre Corvette unit. This is mated to short-shift gearbox, the performance of this Defender is breathtaking and must be driven to be fully appreciated. Finished in metallic red with black part leather interior and featuring creature comforts like air conditioning and heated seats, additional equipment includes sidesteps and LED lights. It is easily apparent the vendor has left no stone unturned in creating this unique Land Rover. A mere 800 miles has been covered since the work was completed. A significant history folder accompanies this 110 Defender XS, including a V5C registration document and receipts for the work carried out, as an added bonus the car is ULEZ compliant. Inspection is recommended to fully appreciate the extent and quality of the work carried out.
