East Coast Defender’s latest project dubbed Project Tuki is a fully-customized Defender 110 that was designed to celebrate its original heritage.
The Defender is rather tame looking compared to some of East Coast Defender’s other undertakings, like Project Viper – powered by a 320kW, 6.2-liter LS3 V8 mill.
Project Tuki is more a little more demure when it comes to both looks and power. The Defender 110 is fitted with a 4-litre V8 mated to a a five-speed ZF automatic transmission.
Inside the seats are covered with Panda Charcoal leather, there is a wooden steering wheel with the colour described as ‘deep corn,’ all American Nickle series gauges and an upgraded sound system and a Kenwood infotainment system.
Project Tuki also comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, GPS, and a reverse camera.
Other added features include a roof rack with a ladder and rear work light, a Defender bumper in grey with rubber end caps, and black leather on the dash door cards and center console and KBX wing top air intakes.
East Coast Defender doesn’t list a price on the build, but it couldn’t have been cheap.
