Land Rover has announced a range of upgrades for older Defender models inspired by the limited-edition Defender Works V8 70th Edition.
The upgrade kits will be available for 90 and 110 wheelbase models built between 1994 and 2016.
Upgrades start with 18-inch diamond-turned Sawtooth alloy wheels which can be fitted to Defenders built from 1994 onwards.
A suspension upgrade kit will be offered, comprising uniquely-tuned suspension tailored for on-road comfort and dynamics with revised coil spring rates, dampers, anti-roll bars, links and bushes. The kit is suitable from 2007 model year vehicles.
There’s also a handling upgrade kit that adds uprated Works V8 specification brake discs, pads and calipers to the 18-inch Sawtooth alloy wheels and enhanced suspension.
The final upgrade option is only available on 2.2-litre TDCi models produced from 2012 model year onwards and is only available direct from Land Rover Classic. The defender classic works upgrade includes all of the wheel, brake and suspension elements in addition to new performance-rated tyres and an engine upgrade which delivers an extra 29kW for outputs of 119kW and 463Nm. Top speed is increased to 170km/h.
Land Rover Australia is yet to confirm whether or not the upgrade kits will be available locally.
