2015 Land Rover Defender 90
This 2015 Land Rover Defender 90 is a handsomely presented off-road icon. It is powered by a 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine outputting 90kW and 360Nm to a constant four-wheel-drive system. Though speed is not the car’s focus, this Defender can run from zero to 100km/h in 15 seconds and is fitted with a six-speed manual transmission. This vehicle currently shows 75,877km on its odometer.
After a continuous run of 67 years and more than two million examples sold, the Land Rover Defender finished production in Solihull, UK in early 2016. This is one of the last few examples to roll out of the factory. The decision to discontinue the Defender came due to new safety standards that the original model would have fallen afoul of. However, for those in the know, the Defender is a serious bit of off-road kit known for its go-anywhere ability and steadfast reliability. This is thanks to its strong chassis, short overhangs, long suspension travel, and huge axle clearance. It’s unashamedly basic both inside and out, built for a purpose which it exceeds expectation in.
This example is painted in Corris Grey on the outside over a black leather/fabric interior. It is a Defender 90 model with the short wheelbase and three doors. The look is accentuated by black exterior trim and a set of black 16-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Continental Cross Contact all-terrain tyres. This car also wears a rear-mounted spare wheel, Land Rover mud flaps and a Safari snorkel.
Built in June 2015, this two-owner Defender was first delivered new through Land Rover Paramatta in late 2015. Some servicing was completed at that dealership as well as independent specialist Graeme Cooper Land Rover before the car was sold to its current owner in Geelong, Victoria. All subsequent servicing has been completed on time at Rex Gorell Land Rover in Geelong, VIC. The most recent maintenance was completed in November 2020 where the clutch was replaced and all brake rotors were replaced. It also holds a current roadworthy certificate.
Exterior presentation is top notch for a Defender. The riveted body panels show next to no signs of damage or scratching and there is minimal weathering identified on exterior trim pieces. One minor dent can be observed on the driver’s side front quarter panel, though that indentation rounds out the extent of damage on this car. None of the four alloy wheels shows any sign of curb rash or paint fade while the Continental tyres show a deep level of tread. The owner notes the car is mechanically sound.
The interior of a Defender is similarly basic to the exterior, but few signs of use are seen inside this cabin. No obvious markings or scratches are shown on the dash or controls while the rear seats look as if they’ve not been used. The front seats show minor signs of creasing on the bolsters, but overall the upholstery has held up well to everyday use. The original Alpine head unit remains in place inside the dash and original hard-wearing floor mats show in good order.
All accompanying documentation and service booklets will be supplied with this car.
