We are delighted to announce we have acquired over a dozen Defenders powered by BMW M52 2.8i engines.
Land Rover South Africa offered a unique Defender during the period the group was owned by BMW. Between 1997 and 2001, the Defender 90 and 110 were offered with a BMW petrol engine alongside the normal Tdi engine. The engine was the BMW M52 2793 cc, straight-six, 24-valve engine as found in the BMW 328i, 528i, 728i, and the Z3. Power and torque output for this engine was 143 kW (192 hp) at 5300 rpm and 280 N⋅m (207 lb⋅ft) at 3950 rpm. This option was offered due to a demand for a petrol-driven alternative to the diesel engine after production of the V8 Defender had ended. The vehicles were built at Rosslyn outside Pretoria
We taking reservation orders now for all incoming Defender model variants; 90s and 110s. These Land Rovers will get snapped up very quickly!
