This Defender 110 has our excellent, lightweight, powerful, nippy 2.3 litre petrol turbo engine installed in place of the original 2.2 Diesel engine.
It also has our smooth and convenient 6-speed automatic gear box, providing a comfortable, modern, two-pedal drive. The JE auto offers 3 driving modes : Normal, Sport, and ‘Tip-Tronic’ manual mode. The Tip-Tronic mode is the best for off-road driving, and in severe conditions the low ratio of the transfer box can be selected. The car as seen in photos also has an electronic handbrake which improves the space for the knees when sitting in the driving seat, making it a convenient add-on product.
As suggested in our ‘Top 3 Defender modifications’ post, this Defender has our JE Dynamic Pack Supersports Suspension kit, which includes a combination of springs, anti-roll bars and specially-valved dampers. This greatly improves the ride and handling of the car, aiding in better cornering, stability and comfort, and giving a much more capable feel.
It also has the beautiful Startech steering wheel, and our JE ‘D’ type 18 inch wheels in black, which is our own design of heavy-duty wheel. These are TÜV approved at 1.25 tonnes (5 tonnes for the vehicle).
