Welcome to KLR Automotive
Australia truly is the lucky country. Why? Two reasons really. In the late ‘70’s Rover Australia saw fit to mount the mighty Isuzu 4BD1 in the Stage One and 110 Land Rovers and history was created. Secondly, we now get a second bite of the cherry with the release of approximately 3000 ex-military 110’s!
The 110 Land Rover with the 4BD1 is arguably the best Land Rover ever produced.
There is plenty of information out there about the 110 Land Rover used by the Australian Defence Force. Code named “Perentie”, after the name of the original selection trials, the Perentie 110 was produced in both 4×4 and 6×6 configurations. Both were fitted with the 3.9l 4BD1 Isuzu engine mated to the LT95 four speed gearbox. The 4×4 was naturally aspirated; the 6×6 was fitted with the 4BD1-T turbocharged version.
