Hi Allan

Finally a thread on the Landy! Looks amazing. I am sure the performance is excellent as well.

Drive to Delhi in this one!

Cheers

Loved your RRC, but this looks a tad overdone IMO, especially the wheels and tyres and the chequerplated eyebrows. I am interested int he engine conversion though - haven't come across this one before. Btw, is that a Safari snorkel? or the standard LR one?

If we picked up those mahindras from you, would you also be able to help in a getting an engine sourced just in case any buyer would want to have a transplant.

And BTW do you also have Gypsies for sale.

Thanks (loved your blue gypsy man).....

Love the way you do up the vehicles Allan.

Awesome stuff!!!

P.S. My B'bay trip is still pending Allan. Hope to make it around soon.

Cheers,
Adi

I had a chance of going in a OTR along with Allan, who was armed with this particular Defender. I would agree that this engine is a torque giant as i saw how effortlessly it just went shashaying up a slope that challenged many a Mahindra classic and Gypsys.

Effortless is what i can say. I also rode in it on a part of the stretch and ill tell you this, a Defender is like no other off roader ive been in, especially in an OTR. Talking about road presence, its a winner through and through. Way to go Allan.

Hey i asked you before too!

what happened to the TUD5 or its original engine.

The original 5 cylinder diesel that comes in this is so reliable that i have driven one which came without a single hitch all the way overland from France.
