The Classic and very sought after Land Rover Defender 90, 110 and 130 Series
Land Rover quickly produced the stage 1 LR and 4-door Range Rover in a program around the 1980's. The Series 3 was replaced when the programme ended by the One-Ten (110") and the Ninety by 1984. Land Rover continued production of the Series 3 until the late 1985 but the 110 was growing increasingly popular. Even though the One-Ten kept the Series 3 shape there were a few minor changes like the grille moving slightly forward to make space for the Rover V8 and other engines. With the introduction of the taller one-piece windscreen and polyurethane wheel arches, improved inside furnishings and slide windows replacing the wind-up making it stand out. The names for the One-Ten (110) and Land Rover Ninety (90) were a result of marketing but there is in fact a difference of 4.5 inches from the original 88 inch Series 3. All the new features and minor changes were carried over to the short wheel base Land Rover 90 inch (ninety). The Land Rover 130 was launched in 1985 but is in fact only 127 inches as a even longer wheelbase version of the Land Rover 110 inch. In 1990 both models were re-branded as the Land Rover 'Defender' and the names changed from One-Ten and Ninety to what we now know as the 90 and 110. The Defenders were then fitted with the 200 TDi turbo diesel engine which was changed in 1993 to the infamous 300 TDi engine. The Land Rover Defender 90 and 110 series have been fitted with the TD5 5-cylinder turbo diesel BMW engine since 1999.

Now that summer is upon us it means that we can explore the 4x4 tracks around South Africa and not freeze our toes off. It is almost time for the first rains which means the water holes will be full and mud! So it is very important that you have all the correct gear in case you or more so your friends driving a toyota get stuck you can easily get unstuck. Be sure to check out our accessories page for the latest and greatest Land Rover accessories for the best prices around. So this sunday the 14 September a few of us have decided to go check out the de Wildt 4x4 track and nature reserve from about 08h00. The plan is for everyone to meet at the gate and sort out the number of vehicles and entrance fee, head over to the picnic area where we have decided to all chip in for a potjie. We will then continue to go around a few of the tracks and obstacles to be done around 12:30 when lunch should be ready, thereafter we will go back out and try another track or complete the obstacles again. Please bring your own cutlery, paper plates and coolerbox hopefully full of ice cold... more
The luxury off road SUV known as the Land Rover Discovery
The Land Rover Discovery was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1989 and marked a major departure from previous Land Rover vehicles by targeting the passenger and family 4x4 market. Although this market barely existed at that time the timing was perfect for the British market which quickly took to the new vehicle. Unlike Land Rover's previous products, the Discovery was able to compete against the family car, boasting a comfortable ride and an interior designed by Sir Terrence Conran. It also competed in terms of power and performance with the now-famous Rover 3.5 litre V8. The 200 TDi direct-injection turbo diesel engine was introduced as a diesel option. This boasted impressive economy and best-in-class performance, although it was slightly noisier than other diesels vehicles in its competing market. Even though it was essentially aimed at the family market the Discovery still boasted the best-in-class off road ability that the Land Rover has come to symbolise. As well as powerful engine options, a transfer case, a locking centre differential, the 100" wheelbase chassis was fitted with coil spring suspension.

The Land Rover Freelander is a compact sport utility vehicle (SUV)
The Freelander introduced in 1997 marked a significant change in marketing and construction for Land Rover. Land Rover had a range of products covering the family 4x4, luxury and utility markets. The Freelander's body and suspension are different to the standard Land Rover practice. Rather than the ladder chassis design that has been used ever since the Series 1, the Freelander is designed with a monocoque body construction like that on modern cars. Unlike modern cars the body has a substantial sub-frame including welded box-section rails. Keeping the body 'square' and adding the strength to survive repeated snatch recoveries gives the body a high structural rigidity. Even if the vehicle is severely cross-axled the rigidity ensures that all five doors will open without catching. The Freelander also lacks a low range gearbox and a differential lock also known as a diff-lock. Due to the introduction of the innovative Hill Descent Control or HDC. HDC pulses the brakes to maintain a target speed of about 5mph in a process reminiscent of ABS at the press of a button. This greatly enhances the Freelander's off-road abilities and does away with the need for a low range gear to descend steep hills. Since been introduced on other Land Rover models it has been a big success.

The classic and now beautiful Range Rover
Since its introduction in 1970, the classic Range Rover had slowly moved up-market from the original concept. By the early 1990s it was felt that the Range Rover should appeal for buyers of luxury cars such as Jaguar and Mercedes. This had to be performed without losing any of the Range Rover's best-in-class off-road capabilities. Hence, the P38 development project was started to completely redesign the Range Rover which was launched in 1994, with sales of the 'classic' Range Rover continuing until 1996. The design team saw the target market as traditional and the final body shape was criticised by many as being too bland. It was also compared with the MetroCab in a negative light. The new design looked more like other SUVs from a distance, but a variety of design cues were kept from the old design. On the positive side, the new body had lower wind noise and an extremely low drag coefficient. Making it popular with a number of police forces as an excellent high speed cruiser.
