Many new parts were fitted including engine, gearbox, axles, brakes and suspension.
This particular example benefited from many new body panels including hood, both front doors and door tops, rear door and Wolf GRP hard top. All Tithonus models received the Wolf upgrade to fully integrated internal rear roll cage and front external roll over protection.

Upgrade included heavy duty Wolf steel rims and Michelin Tires, custom made acoustic rubber matting for the floors, footwells and seatbox. Front rifle mounts, reinforced body with tread plating to hood, fender tops and sill panels. This 110 Defender features Full NATO tow pintle with 12 volt electric hookup.
