WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE? Completely rust free and refinished inside and out in a wonderful color combination, it is a beautiful truck with fantastic curb appeal. The classic Defender 90 body style has been stripped and refinished in Audi “Nardo Gray,” consistently one of our most requested custom colors. The canvas roof is black over a new galvanized frame (allowing al fresco motoring in minutes) and the wheels have been refinished in complimentary black and fitted with oversized all-terrain tires. An updated Defender grille and modern LED lighting front and rear subtly modernizes the look, combined with short rear bumpers and other details. Inside, the front seats have been recovered using new foams and a combination of back “Beluga” synthetic leather with centers in a perforated version fo the same material, and quilted. The center console has been reupholstered to match, as have the four individually-folding rear jump seats, which they can be used for normal seating, folded up out of the way, or removed entirely in minutes, allowing exceptional flexibility of the rear compartment. Underneath, the chassis is entirely rust free and completely straight, with no scrapes or other signs of serious off roading. It"s a beautiful example, with a combination of classic stance and modern details than make it perfect for daily use on road or off. Comfortable, refined and stylish, the color scheme couples classic British Military styling and modern touches. WHAT"S IT LIKE TO DRIVE? With fewer than 85,000 original miles it drives as you would expect. Beautifully. The fresh and legendary "12J" Defender diesel engine fires quickly with little warming of the glow plugs needed even in cold weather. At idle the motor is quiet and refined with absolutely no undue smoke or clatter. Clutch takeup is correct with a firm pedal and easy modulation, and once underway, the truck pulls lustily and changes gears up or down crisply, with no hesitation or balkiness. The factory power steering is precise and direct, with a light feel at parking speeds and pleasant weight on the highway. It goes where you point it, and with a healthy, well damped suspension the Santana feels planted and sure in all conditions. Brakes are powerful and progressive with no noise, vibration or pulling. Everything works. Every gauge, every light, every switch. These trucks are great drivers. Never known for speed, they are nonetheless perfectly suited for modern use on any kind of roadway, including highway travel, and acceleration is brisk enough to easily keep up with modern traffic and to overtake slow vehicles when necessary. Remarkably comfortable on tarmac, it is of course off road where any Land Rover comes into its own, and the Santana 2500 is no exception. Relatively compact overall dimensions, precise power steering, plenty of ground clearance and legendary rough-stuff prowess makes it ideal for use on game trails, logging roads, or powering through mud and sand on its way to your favorite fishing hole, surf break, camping spot, or high mountain vista. In an attractive color combination and with the brawny, muscled-up good looks of a late Defender, fully sorted, serviced and ready to go, it is a rig that can be easily used on road or off, every day, without worry.
