Following the successful reception of the all-new Land Rover Discovery model in 1989, it was decided to give the traditional Land Rover its own name: Defender. Making this more than merely a re-branding exercise was the introduction on the Defender of a new turbo diesel engine that brought with it useful increases in maximum power, torque, and fuel economy when compared with the old normally aspirated diesel it was based on. Now boasting bold 'Defender' logos, the Land Rover continued its seemingly inexorable process of development, gaining disc brakes and power assisted steering as standard during the 1990s together with a host of other improvements. Despite, or perhaps because of, being recognisable related to the very first Land Rover of 1948, the Defender retained a steadfastly loyal customer base; indeed, in the UK in 2013 it even managed to out-sell the Range Rover. The aforementioned improvements would continue to be made regularly until production of the traditional Land Rover Defender ceased in January 2016.
The vendor purchased this well specified County model from a friend in 2009, since when it has been kept garaged, covering circa 1,000 miles annually in recent years. Used as a local runabout and as a 'gun bus' on the vendor's estate, the Defender has an odometer reading of 115,985 miles and has always been well maintained and serviced. Well presented, the vehicle is offered with an old-style logbook, sundry bills, a V5C registration document and current MoT.
