The Santana PS-10



The Santana PS-10

The new Santana was designated PS-10 and presented as 'Hannibal' but due to obvious reasons it is now officially named PS-10.
The PS-10 is in many aspects still the same as the Santana 2500 but a lot of details are changed. One of the most interesting changes is the replacement of the heavy 6 cyl diesel for the lighter, more economic, IVECO 3.0 l common rail 4 cyl. engine. This engine is fitted to a complete new ZF 6 speed manual main gearbox + LT230 4x2/4x4 transfer box. Power steering is a standard feature.

The vehicle is still leaf sprung, to retain the simple and robust Land Rover suspension features however due to our efforts to market parabolic suspension systems it is now fitted out with parabolic suspension for the European market.
Also different is the one piece body, which is a mixture of steel 'cage structure' and aluminum body panels. The whole body is mounted onto the sturdy, box section, chassis frame using 'silent blocs'.

The interior is changed and improved so the driver can now find him/herself in a more comfortable position behind the steering wheel. The defender like seat box is no longer there so the floor is flat which gives much more room for longer persons to sit properly behind the steering wheel.

We are able to supply all possible modifications, you name it, we fit it.

Military Version (not available)

This is the air portable military version. It has many interesting features, like the 'heavy duty' front bumper and fold down side windows, which we like to see on the civilian versions as well.
