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.

It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
Sat, 24 Nov 2012 14:02:00 EST
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
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 and Land Rover are set to merge their sales facilities, according to Inside Line. Jaguar Land Rover North America President Andy Gross says 45 percent of Jaguar owners also have an SUV in their stable, so it makes sense to give customers as much exposure to the cat's high-riding cousins and possible. The number of overall outlets will remain the same, and the brands will reportedly remain separate on the showroom floor, however.
So far, just one dealer has made the move to combine under the roof of one 68,000 square-foot facility in Paramus, New Jersey (above), though a further 20 are ready to make the shift and become Jaguar Land Rover outlets. Gross believes the shift is necessary so that his company's dealer network will accurately reflect the company's products. We'll see how cozy the brands are when Jaguar starts rolling out its own SUVs in a few years.
