What can I say about the vehicle, its an icon of British motoring.
Ours is a 2013 model. So it has air conditioning, and noise levels which allow a conversation above 80kph.
Suspension and drive train is stock, as it came from the factory, no modifications. A few things have however been added:
– sideways bench seats in the back, so we have 9 (legal) seats
– leisure battery, with 12v plugs in the back / anderson plug for trailer
– electric brake controller
– roof rack and side awning
A big thank you to Daniel at the Expedition Centre (link) for fitting some of these and especially for sorting out the engineering challenges thrown up by the bench seats, I must admit I was not expecting to have a 110 with 3 child seat restraint points.
Sadly the Defender is coming to the end of its innings, with 2015 seemingly the last year of production. Will its replacement be as good? Lets see if its still going in 50 years……..
The Bench Seats
I have been asked what the seats look like in the back of the 110. This is them at the end of the trip, so a bit dusty but nothing a spot of detailing won’t sort out. The leg room between them is OK, not luxurious, with just over 70cm between the seats.
