Land Rover Classic introduces retro-fit upgrades for Defender

Upgrade kits for classic off-roader have been inspired by limited-run Defender Works V8.

Looking to upgrade your classic Land Rover Defender? Well, a new raft of equipment has been made available from the manufacturer itself.

Inspired by the limited-run Defender Works V8, Land Rover Classic has made a number of kits and upgrade parts available for the iconic off-roader.

The most affordable item is a diamond-turned 18-inch ‘Sawtooth’ alloy wheel, designed to fit Defenders built from the 1994 model year onwards. Each individual wheel is available for £432, with a set of five available for £2,160. Land Rover will also fit the set itself along with new tyres for £4,068.

Next up, the Suspension Upgrade Kit is designed to improve on-road comfort and driving dynamics of 2007 and later models of the off-roader. It’s available for £1,822.97 on 110 models, and £2,247.07 on 90 variants.
