Ready to Rumble
This land Rover Defender has both a bark and a bite. The tastefully finished, classic Defender 90 has a fire-breathing 6.2L 430 horsepower General Motor LS3 V8 under the hood. The Keswick green defender starts up with a deep growl, emphasized by the throaty custom-fabricated twin-pipe exhaust.
The powerplant is mated to a General Motors six-speed automatic gearbox to help with quick shifting and ease of use. Gear selections are shown on a digital dial on the center console, allowing fully automatic as well as manually selected shifts, all with electronics tuned specifically for this wolf-in-sheep’s-clothes Defender.
To make it stop, the Defender has received an upgraded Wilwood performance brake system. Vented disc brakes have been fitted to all four wheels, sporting six-piston calipers front and four-piston calipers rear. These brakes have bite.
Built for good times
Not only does the Defender feature brawn, it has also received perfect creature comfort upgrades to allow its owner to enjoy endless summers. A custom air conditioning system has been fitted to keep things cool as well as a premium Alpine sound system, including Bluetooth media receiver, amplifier, subwoofer and high-power speakers and tweeters throughout.
The khaki canvas soft top can be fully rolled up, sides and rear, supported by a six-point Safety devices roll cage – keeping things functional and safe. The interior is custom designed and fabricated in beige vegan leather, including the dash board, doors, seats, while the floor is protected by Land Rover heavy duty rubber mats. With a tasteful lift, entry and exit is made easy using the ebony black side runners and rear fold down step.
