Osprey brings back the Land Rover Defender 90 Soft Top

The Defender you see here is nearly a quarter of a century old, but Osprey Custom Cars made sure it looks and handles like new.

This short-wheelbase, three-door SUV is the first finished restomod out of a planned batch of three. It utilizes a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine to propel itself forward with 441 PS (435 hp / 324 kW) and 603 Nm (450 lb-ft) of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission with a transfer case and an inter-axle diff lock sends the momentum to both axles.

urther technical highlights include aftermarket cylinder heads, a performance exhaust system, active powertrain cooling, and stainless-steel fuel lines. Both axles and cardan shafts have been replaced with heavy-duty counterparts, and the same applies to the brakes.

On the outside, the Defender sports new bodywork, doors, radiator grille, and the soft top mentioned above. Black wheels shod in mud tires fill out the arches.

Rounding things off is a leather cabin housing an up-to-date infotainment system, a center console, wireless phone charging pads, and a start/stop button, among other niceties.
