It could have been one of those gray market Range Rovers imported pre RRNA/LRNA existence.
There is no fundamental difference between the suspension of the original Range Rover and the Defender or for that matter the first generation Discovery.
A friend of mine runs a land rover / range rover specialty repair shop. Based on his experience, they are capable of stopping anywhere, anytime, at any cost.
I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.
