This beautifully presented and very special Defender was first registered in March 2008 and has the Ford Puma 2.4-litre TDCi turbo-diesel engine. The previous owner purchased the Defender from Simmonites of Bradford, who had upgraded it some 6-7 years ago, repainting the vehicle in blue; raising the suspension; and fitting 18" five-spoke Nemesis alloy wheels and various KBX enhancements (see below). The previous owner proceeded to make some improvements of his own, upgrading the interior and having the engine ECU professionally remapped, though the most striking modification is the dark-tinted 'privacy' side windows. Other notable features include LED lighting; sump guard; side steps; and chequer plate. This supremely well equipped vehicle also boasts styling enhancements from marque specialists KBX: front grille and lamp surrounds; side and wing-top air intakes, all in gloss black. The interior is now luxurious, boasting Corbeau-style front bucket seats trimmed in diamond-pattern leather; a leather-rimmed Springalex sports steering wheel; and a Pioneer entertainment system with Bluetooth connectivity and flip-out DVD screen. Importantly, the previously Spartan rear load space has been insulated, lined and fitted with two optional fold-down rear seats. The vehicle has also been fitted with a tracker.
The enthusiast vendor purchased the Defender earlier this year; however, he finds that he uses his '110' far more so the '90' is being sold. Beautifully presented, this uniquely well specified Land Rover is offered with bills for Simmonites' work and the ECU re-map; the original service manual; MoT to 25th January 2022; and a V5C document.
