This is a 1996 Land Rover Defender 90 which is finished in stylish and contemporary Land Rover Biarritz blue all over. The rare Biarritz blue looks lovely in the sun and with color coded door handles and mirror covers to match. This Defender is the ideal mix of old school strength, blended with a touch of a more modern flair. It has been tastefully updated with modern LED lights, SVX alloy wheels and a Heritage style front grill. The LED light kit, Exmoor Trim carpet throughout, new Puma doors, window seals, hardware, and ancillaries all give this classic a nice facelift on such an iconic classic. The Defender 90 follows the grand tradition of tough-as-nails Land Rovers, and you recognize it from the moment this one comes into view. It looks ready to take on the toughest terrain. This Defender will be able to take you beyond the trails, but it will also turn heads when rolling through the streets of town.
Another great reason to have a Land Rover built for a foreign country is under the hood. As the US market was never blessed with diesel power plants and we all know diesel power provides the best torque to get you through or over anything. It's equipped with one of the best, the robust 300Tdi engine with a R380 5-speed manual transmission, regarded by many in the Land Rover world as their best engine produced, and it has earned a tough-as-nails reputation over the years. The 300Tdi 2.5-liter 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine in this Defender has 130k miles and runs very well. Paired with the R380 5-speed manual it moves through the gears well and it has no problem keeping up with everyday traffic, around town or cruising at highway speeds. With bulletproof power and torque for ultimate reliability in the harshest conditions, there's simply nothing that can beat a diesel engine. Shift action is light and smooth with the R380 gearbox, the clutch take-up is clean and with power steering and disc brakes all round, it feels competent on or off-road. It has a nice feature of a Slickshifter installed that improves gear changes by minimizing the gear lever travel. This creates quick, precise, and noticeably smoother gear shifts every time. It provides high performance on-road with the capability to tackle the worst off-road conditions and in nearly every driving environment the world has to offer.
The refurbishment also means a well-done interior. It has well-presented fundamentals, including the interior carpeting, tidy cloth seats, chrome gear knobs and an elegant 3-spoke Momo steering wheel. It has original county trim seats fitted. It comes complete with modern features like electric power windows and a remote central locking system. The instrument cluster and dash has been upgraded to a more modern Raptor Engineering binnacle with all updated VDO gauges with battery voltmeter, oil pressure, rev counter and boost gauges. It has sound deadened and with new Exmoor Trim premium carpet, floor mats and gear and handbrake gators. The cargo bay offers enough room for storage and for extra passengers. It comes with four foldable individual seats in the rear cargo area all with lap belts. The control levers manage the 5-speed manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case/hi-low range and there's a center cubby box between the seats with cup holders. It rides on Land Rover Defender 16" SVX alloy wheels wrapped with General Grabber A/T tires for a capable and aggressive stance. All lights, heater, wipers and radio work, as they should. The chassis, bulkhead and doorframes are in excellent condition. Equipped with power steering and disc brakes all round reminds you that go-anywhere also means being easy to drive and more importantly enjoyable when you're behind the wheel. So, if you want to go anywhere and look great doing it, this is the Defender to have. It's a stylish and modern take on a classic Defender, with all the right upgrades to get you out there and to enjoy it on the trails, mountain roads, sandy beaches or just around town.
