The 1979 forerunner of the Defender was the Series III Land Rover Stage One V8. The Stage One V8 was a Series III Land Rover installed with a Range Rover alloy V8, five speed gearbox with selectable high or low range , and central differential providing full-time four wheel drive. The Range Rover V8 engine was detuned, in part by lowering the compression ratio to ensure the vehicle could run on low grade gasoline/petrol, and to limit the top speed potential of the vehicle. A Series III Land Rover was not the most stable car in which to attempt high speed antics so it was kept to a top speed that would enable it to keep up with highway traffic, but not much more.

In 1983 the result of this research and development program was unveiled and given the name the Land Rover One Ten. The Land Rover One Ten model was the long wheelbase model and it was joined by its short wheelbase sibling the Land Rover Ninety in 1984. These were the first Land Rover “Defender” models although the name “Defender” had not been coined for them yet. The new Land Rover One Ten and Ninety used the Range Rover V8 engine and transmission as had been fitted to the Series III Stage One V8, complete with a lockable central differential giving the vehicle permanent four wheel drive, and featuring high and low range gears for on and off-road use. The improvements did not stop there however, the windscreen was made in one piece and was higher than its forebear, and the axles and suspension were also new.
