1997 NAS Land Rover Defender 90
Number 950
Complete Nut and Bolt Restoration
Offered for sale is a completely restored, extremely solid 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 NAS Convertible
finished in rare British Racing Green Metallic. This was the final import year for this vehicle and is one of only
438 NAS Defender 90s imported in British Racing Green Metallic in 1997. There were only 1499 convertibles imported
that year and this beauty is stamped #950. I purchased this D90 16 years ago and have loved it ever since.
This D90 just passed Rhode Island Vehicle Inspection with no issues or warnings (July 2017).
The Land Rover Defender 90 came with full-time four wheel drive and high-low range selection, a full roll cage and
factory air conditioning. Mechanically fantastic, this Defender is a pleasure to drive offering a rugged feel that
only the best 4X4 in the world can provide. The rebuilt 4.0L V8 starts effortlessly, idling and pulling strongly
and smoothly through each of the ZF automatic transmission’s gears. Compression is excellent across all cylinders
and the truck’s road manners are exactly what you’d expect from a meticulously restored , well-maintained
Defender.
With DOT regulations bringing the Defender 90’s three-year (`94, `95 and `97) North American run to an end, the
`97 model is the last and arguably best vintage of the iconic truck. Adding to the attraction is `97 is the only
year this model came with an automatic transmission. Consequently, the market on NAS Defender 90s has remained
exceptionally strong, making them one of the few modern-era production vehicles to actually be considered
investment grade.

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 may join the FWD, small-car parade

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 10:01:00 EST

Was it right for Chevrolet to detune the 1975 Corvette's base engine to 165 horsepower? Was Aston Martin wrong to make the Toyota iQ-based Cygnet? Is BMW crazy to be testing the new 1 Series with three-cylinder engines and front-wheel drive? It seems now, just as in the 1970s and 1980s, that emissions regulations and social considerations are driving some automakers to adopt unbefitting practices to maintain acceptance in the eyes of governments and consumers. Jaguar has jumped on the bandwagon, and is considering development of small, frugal, front-wheel-drive cars to help lower Jaguar Land Rover's average vehicle CO2 levels in light of tightening European emissions regulations, Autocar reports.
By 2020, the European Union expects the model range of every manufacturer to average 95 grams per kilometer, which is a new law passed by the European Parliament in April. Manufacturers who make more than 300,000 vehicles per year must meet these targets, and JLR is expected to be producing up to 700,000 vehicles per year by then. CO2 regulations after 2020 will only get stricter, as EU politicians already are talking about lowering CO2 levels to between 68 g/km and 78 g/km. (To put that in perspective, Autocar posits that driving a fully charged electric vehicle in Europe produces about 75 g/km when factoring in the power-generation infrastructure.)
Jaguar has some choices here, but so far they all have drawbacks. It could develop a new, compact chassis architecture for a line of compact vehicles, but the investment required for such a project could be prohibitively expensive. Jaguar has been looking into using the Land Rover Evoque platform for a small SUV, Autocar reports, but Land Rover brand manager John Edwards raises issue with such a plan, saying it may not be financially feasible.
