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.

This Or That: 1987 VW Vanagon Syncro vs. 1987 Land Rover Defender [w/poll]

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 12:44:00 EST

As I scoured auction sites and classified ads for the perfect vehicle to take into battle with Autoblog Associate Editor Brandon Turkus, I knew I needed to find something unique. You see, I'm currently 0-2 at winning a round of This or That, in which two of our editors agree on a category, choose a side, and argue it out over a (mostly) friendly chain of emails.
The first time we did this, my chosen Fiat 500 Abarth took about a third of the popular vote in our reader poll. The second time, my lovely 1980 Oldsmobile 442 did just a little bit better against a 1989 BMW 635 CSi. Despite holding the opinion that my automotive choices, though perhaps a little bit more... obscure than my fellow editors, are still better, an outright win would go a long way toward boosting my vehicular self worth a few notches upward.
With all of that out of the way, even if three isn't my lucky number after all, I go into battle against Brandon knowing full well that I've made the perfect choice: A 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon Syncro. My rough-and-tumble van/'ute has a formidable opponent in the form of a 1987 Land Rover Defender, which, truth be told, is exactly what I was expecting from Turkus, a self-proclaimed Rover aficionado.

Is Jaguar's 3 Series-fighter the brand's last chance?

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 10:00:00 EST

The upcoming line of compact 3 Series-fighters from Jaguar, often referred to as the Jaguar XS, could consist of a sedan, wagon and possibly a coupe and GT model (think BMW 5 Series GT). The car's all-aluminum architecture also will provide the basis for two new sports utility vehicles. Just how important is the much-touted "baby Jag" project to parent company Jaguar Land Rover? A JLR executive reportedly says the brand's survival is directly linked to the success of the XS, codenamed X760, Autocar reports.
The brand's survival is directly linked to the success of the XS.
"If the X760 fails, it will probably be the end for the [Jaguar] brand," the executive says. But Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar's global brand director, claims Jaguar will "build the most advanced, most efficient, most refined car in that [compact luxury sedan] segment. Not almost as good as, but better than the best in the world."

Jaguar Land Rover building new R&D center for hybrids, EVs, autonomous cars

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 18:01:00 EST

The success of Jaguar Land Rover in recent years has largely been down to a resurgent product lineup, but a recent move into the research and development will see the British-based, Indian-owned brands take the fight to its German rivals more aggressively than ever before.
JLR is investing 50 million pounds ($80,345,000, as of this writing) in a joint R&D center in central England. The move will more than triple its staff dedicated to research, from 150 to 500, with Wolfgang Epple, JLR's Director of Research and Technology telling Automotive News Europe, "In order to play among the big animals in automotive and to be anchored in the mind of customers you have to have offered something unique, to be first in market. We want to be one of the key premier automotive manufacturers."
Jaguar Land Rover's 50-million-pound contribution represents more than half of the 94-million-pound tab, on the so-called National Automotive Innovation Campus. Based at Warwick University, Tata's European Technical Center, Warwick Manufacturing Group and the Higher Education Funding Council, an agency of the British government, are all chipping in for the facility.
