The land rover defender project for sale is the SUV of choice for many. Whether you’re living in the country or just want to go exploring, this iconic 4×4 vehicle offers incredible off-road ability, open-air flexibility and compact proportions that allow it to carry a massive load.
What is so special about Land Rover?
Until recently, the Defender was the only SUV available with a full third row of seats that folds flat, allowing it to carry a whopping 1232 litres. That means it’s an ideal family car and even a great load lugger.
If you need a bigger space, there’s the option of folding the second row as well and getting 2291 litres to play with. In addition to the rear cargo area, there’s also a roof-mounted luggage system, and a handy air suspension feature that can lower the ride height when you’re loading heavy objects.
One of the best things about the Defender is that it’s a very simple to drive, with imperceptible gear changes and brakes that are easy to control. Plus, the newer Defenders are much more capable off-road than their predecessors.
This 1997 Land Rover Defender 110 was restored by the UK-based aftermarket shop Arkonik. It’s based on the original D110 model and has been converted into a rugged workhorse for those who enjoy driving and tackling off-road challenges.
It’s powered by a long-lasting, 200 turbodiesel engine and is ready to roll for adventure. Inside, it’s decked out in classic Eastnor Green and Chawton White paint.
