The Land Rover 110 forward control - codenamed Llama - was a prototype for a 2-ton, all-purpose, cross-country vehicle and had potential military contracts firmly in mind and the forward driving position giving an excellent load capacity.

Based on a 110" chassis but with wider axles to aid stability, the 3.5 litre V8 engine and five-speed gearbox was fitted. The cab was tilt-forward and Land Rover claimed that 85% of the chassis and drivetrain was carried over from other models.

Ten prototypes and two production vehicles were built but full production was never realised. This military specification Llama was the first of the two production models. With no order from the MoD, Land Rover cancelled the project in 1988.
