German tuning company Startech has created a luxurious Land Rover Defender, reminiscent of the British company’s Autobiography upscale trims found on the Evoque, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport.
The Defender has been customized inside and out and features a a leather-clad sporty steering wheel and shiny new aluminium pedals. The plush leather upholstery in cream and caramel lines the interior, giving the hardy vehicle a far more cushioned feel.
Startech have also fitted the defender with a Focal sound system complete with a three Swell speakers in the back where the tuner has installed a wood floor and applied a similar caramel upholstery for the two benches.
The custom Defender rides on 18-inch Monostar D Black wheels and sports aluminum running boards. The “Defender” lettering at the front has been blacked out to blend with the laregly dark exterior theme. There’s also a custom grille with an extra set of lights, along with a new bonnet and dirt flaps.
Personally we far prefer the custom Land Rover Defender from Ultimate Vehicle Concept’s (a division of East Coast Defenders based in Florida, USA) that we featured recently, known as Project Viper.
For those waiting patiently for the all-new Defender, Land Rover say that it is not far away and can be expected in 2018.
