Just look at it.
America is absolutely obsessed with Land Rovers, whether it be the ultra-luxurious Range Rover or the rough and ready Defender. The new Defender has been outselling the old model by a large margin, but Americans still have a soft spot for the original car, which is fetching insane prices, especially when restored and modified. Osprey Custom Cars is one builder that specializes in these cars with previous creations including a 600-horsepower supercharged Defender, and a 1986 Defender that is more luxurious than most BMWs. The company has now revealed its latest build, and it could possibly be the best one yet.
This custom Defender 110 has undergone a complete ground-up build, including a complete exterior and interior makeover, and even an engine swap. On the outside, this Landy is painted Keswick Green with a Santorini black roof, and features black anodized aluminum billet hinges on the doors, hood, fire and ice side steps, front and rear LED lights, and a tough-looking KBX front grille with black intake vents.
The redone body rolls on a brand new chassis with stock suspension, upgraded rebuilt axles with front and back disc brakes, and 20-inch Kahn rims wrapped in all-terrain tires.
Under the hood sits a 5.3-liter LS V8 engine that sends 325 hp to the wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
Moving to the interior, this 110 now feels like a premium SUV from any of the major German manufacturers, and features a TDCI ‘Puma” style dashboard, aluminum door trimming, black Autobiography seating with front heated seats, and even an Alcantara headliner. Creature comforts include front and rear air conditioning, cruise control, and a custom center console with phone charging ports. The infotainment system is an Alpine double din stereo with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay integration and JL speakers. The car has received further refinements in the form of heavy duty sound deadening material for a quiet ride.
Not only is this Land Rover Defender 110 classy, but its supremely capable off road. The perfect combination.
