KLR History



Based in Windsor, Sydney, Australia and with over 25 years experience, KLR Automotive is a successful independent Land Rover, Range Rover & Perentie specialist covering all facets of Land Rover work.

Matt Derrig and Brad Pollard are the owners and operators of KLR Automotive and both have grown up with a passion and keen interest in all things Land Rover and in particular a soft spot for the Isuzu variants, with Matt doing his apprenticeship on them when they first came out and Brad driving them extensively during his time in the Australian Army.

And not forgetting James Derrig (Matt’s son), who’s extensive and specialist knowledge in Land Rovers and Range Rovers adds another level of expertise to KLR’s abilities.

And what do they all drive? Well Land Rovers, Range Rovers and Perenties of course and they are all powered by some version of the Isuzu 4BD1. about-3xland-rovers.png

KLR know Land Rovers, Range Rovers and Perenties backwards and because of their thorough research over many years sourcing quality parts from trusted suppliers either locally or overseas, when you buy ‘KLR Recommended’ parts on this website, you can be sure that these are the same parts they use, not only in their workshop, but also in their own vehicles.

And anyone who has had the famous ‘KLR Turbo Conversion’ done to their Perentie, will testify to the incredible transformation this conversion alone can do.

But this didn’t just happen, Matt and Brad did their first Isuzu conversion in the early nineties on a 1976 two-door Range Rover and from there they progressed to factory turbo versions and five-speed gearboxes and finally onto creating their own turbo systems in both the Range Rover and 110.

And it doesn't stop there - servicing, repairs, modifications, accessory fitting and parts sales are just a small part of what KLR can expertly do for all Land Rover, Range Rover and Perentie models up to and including current models.

With a loyal and constantly growing customer base, KLR Automotive also enjoy a strong online reputation in forums and social media, as they are always willing to help and advise where possible.

So whether your vehicle is a weekend bush basher or a ‘forever’ car, if you love your Land Rover, Range Rover, or Perentie like KLR do, then see Matt, Brad & James to make the best 4wd even better!
