This is a clean, rust free right hand drive ex-MOD Land Rover Defender 110. It was built for the British army and
was put into service in 1987. I bought it direct from the Ministry of Defense and shipped it to Houston. A clear
Texas title is in hand and will come with the purchase of the truck. This 110 is the perfect hunting truck, beach
cruiser, or even a daily driver.
Many Defenders like this one were restored and upgraded by the UK Army between 2007-2008 to extend the service life
of the fleet. Upgraded equipment included new Safety Devices, new Exmoor Outlast Seating, and Wolf heavy duty
wheels.
The engine is Land Rover's 2.5 NA Diesel and the transmission is the LT77 5 speed. The engine was rebuilt by the
Ministry of Defense and runs, drives, shifts great.
These trucks are 4x4 with locking differential. They do not have power windows/locks, ABS, NAV, etc. They do have a
bulletproof diesel engine (used in Land Rovers for a decade), transmission, brakes, and seats. Everything you need
to get somewhere fun.
This truck has a spray in bed liner from front to back on the inside (installed by local Chevy dealer installer),
Land Rover floor mats, new suspension parts, genuine MOD rifle rack, fresh paint, all new filters and fluids, and
more. Only the first two
pictures show the rig with the new tires/wheels.
Please come by to see the truck in person.

Jaguar Land Rover building new Special Vehicle Operations facility

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 17:45:00 EST

It's only been a couple of months since Jaguar Land Rover announced the formation of its new Special Operations division, and we've already seen a number of vehicles to come out of it. But now the British automaker has announced a new facility that will house its elite skunkworks department.
Set to be built at Prologis Park in Ryton, England, on the outskirts of Coventry, the new Special Vehicle Operations Technical Centre will encompass dedicated production lines, F1-style flexible workshops, a dedicated paint studio and VIP suite for commissioning bespoke projects. JLR will spend some $33 million on the facility that will be home to 150 specialists - 100 of them being new hires.
The first project which the Special Operations division is working on is the F-Type Project 7, but we've already seen more projects in the pipeline - including the upcoming Range Rover Sport SVR - and you can bet there'll be more. The revival of the Lightweight E-Type also falls under Special Operations, but is undertaken by the Jaguar Heritage department located nearby at Browns Lane.

Jaguar Land Rover and Chery investing in Chinese plant

Sat, 24 Nov 2012 14:02:00 EST

While the European auto market for Jaguar and Land Rover is waning, Chinese car buyers can't get enough of the British marques. To meet that demand, Tata Motors, parent company of Jag and Land Rover, is partnering with Chinese automaker Chery Automobile Co.
The two announced plans to invest $1.75 billion to build a new plant and create a new, China-focused brand. 2014 is the target for completion of the factory. Jaguars and Land Rovers built at the facility will be the first ever produced outside the UK according to the Associated Press. The JV will be called Chery Jaguar Land Rover Automotive Company Ltd.
The announcement comes less than a month after JLR announced it would open a design studio in China. It's not clear from the reports whether the two announcements are part of the same JV or two separate plans.

Jaguar Land Rover puts the freeze on wounded soldier-athletes [w/video]

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 16:59:00 EST

For athletes, the cold is often a powerful ally in treating injures, with RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) a popular means of treating muscle pulls, bruising and other common forms of discomfort. Did you know, though, that frosty temps are also popular tools for simply recovering from a rough training session?
Well, we're guessing Jaguar Land Rover knew that, as the British company was kind enough to loan out its climactic testing chamber to Jaco van Gass and Luke Darlington, a pair of veterans wounded in their service to Queen and Country. Van Gass, a former private in the Royal Army, and Darlington, a Royal Marine, are attempting to earn a spot on the British Armed Forces cycling team for the upcoming Invictus Games.
The Games, inspired by the Warrior Games held in the United States, are a sporting competition reserved for injured servicemen and women, either active duty or veterans, and is slated to take place from September 10 to 14 in London's former Olympic venues. Van Gass lost his left arm below the elbow after getting hit by a rocket-propelled grenade (he also suffered from a collapsed lung, punctured internal organs, severe shrapnel and blast wounds, a broken tibia and a fractured knee). Darlington, meanwhile, suffered a traumatic brain injury during action in Afghanistan, and he now suffers from weakness in his right side and cognitive issues.
