1995 Land Rover Defender 90 LHD with 2.0 MPi engine paired with R380 5-speed manual transmission and 213K Km (133K Miles) on the clock available for adoption.
About 2.0 MPi motor – a two liter petrol engine from the Rover stable was briefly available in a Defender known as the 2.0 MPi. It is a (1,994 cc) fuel injected DOHC 16 valve inline-four petrol engine with MPi system. Multi-point injection (MPi) systems inject fuel at each cylinder, allowing much greater control over how much fuel the engine burns. In MPi systems, the injection generally takes place directly inside the cylinder’s intake valve. This engine was introduced in 1992 to attract fleet managers, since UK (and also Italian) tax laws benefited vehicles under two liters. This engine was also fitted in Discovery 1 vehicles until 1999 for European market. Italian Carabinieri had a large fleet of Defenders equipped with the 2.0MPi petrol engines rated at 136HP / 140 lb-ft torque with top speed of 98 MPH, which was quicker than any of the TDi engines available in Defenders at the time and had great fuel consumption rating at 23 MPG.
Rust free survivor with solid chassis and bulkhead, all body panels are in great condition, very well preserved D90 which served its entire life as Italian Carabinieri vehicle in dry climate of Southern Italy!
