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.

Land Rover, Toyota big winners in ALG top resale value awards

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 11:33:00 EST



"Residual value is important for automakers and consumers because it's a complete indicator of the vehicle's future value." - Larry Dominique
Toyota and Land Rover took home the top brand honors in ALG's 2015 Residual Value Awards, which will be presented this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

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.

Mazda CX-5 named Japan's Car of The Year, Subaru BR-Z wins "Special Award"

Mon, 03 Dec 2012 10:33:00 EST

The Mazda CX-5 stamped its Kodo design and SkyActiv technology authority all over the Japan Car of the Year awards, taking the top prize ahead of the Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT 86. It is Mazda's second victory in the last ten years, the 2005 MX-5 claiming the same trophy, and the fourth time the Hiroshima company has won.
The award is decided by 60 local "automotive experts and journalists," and open to any passenger car released in Japan from November 1, 2011 to October 31, 2012 that has sold more than 500 units. Each judge gets 25 votes, his or her top vote getting 10 points, the rest of the points being spread among the judge's choice for the next best four cars.
The second-place getters were the Toyobaru twins with 318 votes, the surprise being they didn't beat or get any closer to the crossover. The Subaru BRZ did claw some mojo back, earning the Special Award given to cars that have made "an exceptional impact." The BMW 3 Series was third overall and won the Import Car of the Year award with plenty of room between it and the second place Range Rover Evoque.
