Don't miss this opportunity to purchase a extremely rare and vintage Land Rover Santana, recently imported from Spain with all original equipment, except for new paint job (RAF gray), truck bed liner interior, 5 new tires, upgraded vacuum assist pump for the brakes and rebuilt starter.  Santana Motor S.A. was a Spanish car manufacturer based in Linares, in the province of Jaen, Spain, contracted by the original British Land Rover Company to build these vehicles.  This 1983 Santana D90 is considered a superior version of the British Made Land Rover.  These are extremely rare in North America.  The vehicle is advertised as a 1980 D90; however, it is actually 1983 because of the Vin Number that US Customs gave it won't list in the above field.  Their vin number is VSELBABG2AZ102476

Truck features include the original 2.5 liter--4 cylinder diesel engine and detachable side walls, doors, and roof.  Estimated mpg is 25-30.  Short wheel base or also known as the D90 Series. Reinforced hood and wings--bar 5 diamond plate.  

Great in town commuter vehicle or off road on Mountainous Terrain.

Vehicle was imported from Spain in 2013.

Buyer will responsible for transportation of purchased vehicle.  Payment must be a bank certified check with U.S. Funds within one week after online purchase.

Reason for selling--I am a 2nd Lt in the US Army, and I am having a change in duty station that will not allow me to continue ownership of the Defender.  I regret having to give up my childhood dream car, and would like the new owner to be someone who appreciates the history of this vehicle.

Jaguar Land Rover details JustDrive connectivity suite

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 14:30:00 EST

JustDrive will allegedly deliver on the long-promised idea of natural communication between driver and car.
Jaguar Land Rover's all-new InControl system is set to get a big bump as the British company will add a new service called JustDrive, which expands on the smartphone-focused infotainment system by adding a singular voice controller for a wide array of the system's currently available apps.

Jaguar Land Rover opens winter testing facility in Minnesota

Wed, 12 Dec 2012 17:43:00 EST

As it begins the rollout of the all-wheel-drive Jaguar XJ and XF models, Jaguar Land Rover has just announced that it has opened a new facility in northern Minnesota for winter testing. Located in International Falls, MN (on the US and Canadian border), the British automaker says it is one of the coldest locations in the Continental US. Jaguar's new Instinctive All Wheel Drive system was developed primarily to help sell more cars in the northern US, so it only makes sense to open a testing area in the US as well.
With temperatures that can drop to minus 55 degrees Fahrenheit, International Falls was chosen to mimic some of the worst weather a Jaguar or Land Rover will ever see. The grounds house testing chambers, various road surfaces and even a frozen lake. This new facility complements the hot-weather testing grounds in Phoenix, AZ.
The official press release is posted below.

Ferrari exec to lead Jaguar North America

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 18:31:00 EST

Jaguar has announced that Jeff Curry will be serving as the brand's new North American vice president, effective August 13. The move is a coup for Jag, which lured Curry away from his previous posting as VP of marketing for Ferrari North America, and is further evidence of just how strong Jaguar's comeback has gotten.
Curry has spent over 20 years in the auto industry, and has worked with Audi, SiriusXM and Land Rover, where he made his start in the industry. His primary responsibilities with Jaguar will cover marketing communications, customer relationship management, and product planning.
Jaguar Land Rover's North American president, Andy Goss, heaped praise on the brand's newest addition saying, "Jeff brings with him extensive automotive and luxury marketing experience, critical expertise in leading-edge technologies and a personal passion for automobiles."
