4610 Pet Lane
This 1991 Land Rover Defender 110 is the kind of awesome go-anywhere 4x4 that also allows you to take everyone and everything with you, too. And while the desirable turbodiesel setup means the power and the robustness to get you as deep into nature as you want, this one is also a bold right-hand drive SUV that looks distinctive even rolling through downtown.
The Defender series was ideal for plenty of old-school strength mixed with a touch of more modern flair, and this one seems to really pull this feeling off the best. After all, the design has the instant look of lineage to all those other globetrotting Land Rovers. There are just little hints of evolution that this is a later one with the proper door handles and alloy wheels borrowed from a Range Rover. Plus, this is built for added ruggedness with a bull bar front bumpers, tubular side steps, fender flares, and a full roof rack. You also have steel plated fenders tops and rear fenders. All of this black looks great against the bold and bright red paint. Upgraded LEDs for headlights, taillights, and Light Force running lights all make sure you can turn night into day. And the well-mounted snorkel breather means you'll not only climb every mountain, but also ford every stream.
This is a British machine, and so it's extra-special to have it in right hand drive. It's also easy to show off this unique interior thanks to well-presented fundamentals, including the carpeting, upholstery, and door panels. The driving position is comfortable with high-back front bucket seats, a smooth/clean dash, and a grippy classic Land Rover steering wheel. There are some nice everyday features, like an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input, cup holder center console, tinted windows, and a sunroof. Plus, this has the handy features of four jump seats in the rear, so you've got room for plenty of cargo or have the option of carrying up to eight people besides yourself.
Another great reason to have a Land Rover built for a foreign country is under the hood. We were never offered diesel power with the Defenders that were sold in the USA, and we all know diesel provides the best torque to get you through Mother Nature. So it's great to see a 2.5-liter turbodiesel under the hood. This powerplant has earned a tough-as-nails reputation from the Scottish Highlands to Gibraltar, and because this has been a long-standing British motor, the parts are also widely available. The five-speed manual transmission is a particularly smooth shifter that also gives you full control over the diesel power. Plus, the high ground clearance and two-speed 4x4 transfer case assures that you can keep going even when the trail ends. But there's more to this Defender. The power steering, power brakes, and front discs remind you that go-anywhere also means being easy to drive down Main Street.
This one feels solid on or off the road, and that makes for an irresistible SUV where some people may mistake your milk runs for leaving on a safari. How cool is that? Call today!!!
