Land Rover has announced that it is to offer a very limited run of just 150 70th Anniversary Defenders fitted with a 5.0 litre V8 petrol engine mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Solihull’s final celebration of the Defender before the long-awaited replacement is revealed, will be built by their Classic division that has also built the reworked Series I and the Range Rover Classic.
If you fancy one of the last of the last Defenders you will need at least £150,000 to enjoy the 400bhp and 500 nM of torque that it will deliver.
However, those more financially astute and desiring something that is completely custom built to your own specifications we would like to remind you that Nene Overland can offer a fully bespoke-built Land Rover Defender using the Corvette 6.2 V8 LS engine. This unit will reward you with 430bhp and 540nM out of [...]
It is with heartfelt regret that we have taken the decision to close our Maidenhead facility, last operating day, Friday 1st December 2017.
The decision has been taken due to medium term issues to do with the security of the site located off Stafferton Way and the ongoing challenge of just not being able to obtain a full complement of skilled staff, primarily in the workshop to provide the level of service required and volume of business to make the site viable.
Our thanks go out to all our clients who have supported us since opening, together with the dedicated team of Staff who have worked tirelessly to look after our clients whilst we established the business in Maidenhead and surrounding areas over the past few years. We are currently focused on completing any ongoing work on vehicles currently on site and will remain open until 4 pm on Friday the 1st of December.
Nene Overland is delighted to be working closely with Volvo to be able to offer their commercial and business clients the brand new NENE UT90 vehicle with full N1 status, bringing unrivalled comfort, versatility and economy in a VAT qualifying vehicle with incredibly low tax rates when used as a company car.
We have always looked for the most current and versatile 4×4 vehicle solutions for our commercial clients. Their needs and requirements have changed a lot in the past few years, now it is all about maximum safety, comfort and versatility, whilst still requiring excellent load carrying and towing vehicles, all of which are available in abundance with the latest generation Volvo XC90, which is why we chose it as the base vehicle to develop our ground breaking NENE UT90.
NENE OVERLAND IS NOW OFFERING THE INSTALLATION OF A CORVETTE LS3 6.2 LITRE V8 ALONG WITH 6 SPEED AUTOMATIC GEARBOX FOR THE LAND ROVER DEFENDER
Land Rover owners can transform their vehicle into a truly wild V8 Defender by bringing in their existing vehicle for conversion or letting us find the perfect Defender and installing the LS V8 for them. Our years of experience in tuning has yielded the highest-ever performance levels from a Defender. Our technical abilities along with attention to each and every detail, has seen us develop cutting-edge components that are technically innovative and ultimately faster and stronger than the competition. The Nene Overland Wild Defender programme replaces the stock diesel engine and gearbox, with a GM derived 6.2L petrol V8 and 6 speed automatic gearbox providing 430bhp and more than 540 NM of Torque at 4,700 RPM. Additional power upgrades are available for power increases, providing over 550bhp.
If there is anything that the VOLVO brand is known for it is safety and reliability so when they entered the 4×4 SUV market in 2002 there was never any doubt that the Swedish masters would produce something very special indeed. Based on the same platform as the Volvo S80 it quickly became Volvo’s best selling vehicle worldwide and continues to dominate the market.
Launched at the North American Auto Show the first generation XC90 was offered with a 208BHP, 2.5 litre, 5-cylinder diesel and a 268BHP, 2.9 litre, twin-turbo, inline 6-cylinder. While the 2.5 was available in either 2-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configuration the 2.9, with its 4-speed auto was only available in AWD.
There is no doubting that the Ford Ranger has fast become the most popular pickup on UK roads. It’s not a new vehicle by any means, having found its way to the European market in 1988, the Ford Ranger Pickup has been available from your local Ford dealer for almost 20 years.
The original vehicle was based on the Mazda B-Series, then progressed to Mazda BT50 before being re-launched in 2011 as a 100% Ford thoroughbred. In 2016 it was treated to a bit of a facelift to fall into line with the rest of the Ford SUV fleet and is unmistakable as a modern Ford vehicle, with similar grille/headlight/bumper design as the Ford Kuga and Ford Edge crossovers.
As the Ford Ranger has three different body-styles and four model variants it can be difficult to choose which would [...]
