2009 Land Rover Zulu Defender. 480bhp. 4.2 V8 Supercharged. 1 of 12 Ltd Edition

This is a very special Land Rover Defender. Unlike numerous "breathed on" pretenders the Zulu Defender has been re-engineered by performance specialists JE Engineering. JE has a long history of producing competition engines for several different classes of motorsport including Drag Racing, Touring Cars and Off-road racing, having supplied engines for Bowler’s highly successful Wildcat off-road racing cars from 2003 onward, and Land Rover’s Paris Dakar team from 1985-1987. This isn't a standard engine that has been remapped, this is a bespoke Zulu drivetrain with upgraded gearbox, diffs, prop shafts, brakes, suspension and exhaust.
