Land Rover Defender 90 LS3 6.2 V8
Absolutely stunning Defender 90. We took this new Defender 90 XS station wagon finished in very rare Havana pearl flip paint finish which gives you a mixture of blacks, dark retro greys and browns as the light and sun position changes through the day so an incredible look. To complete the exterior we added front sports grille and light surrounds, a set of 20″ Carbon dipped sport alloys on Copper LTZs, sports wing top vents and bonnet vents for further engine venting and to finish RR sport side vents. To get you round those sweeping bends w dropped the ride height and added our Icon fast road dampers and progressive road springs. All to handle that 430 BHP and huge low down torque. This very refined defender really does fly. Fitment of the Corvette LR 6.2 V8 mated to touch pad 6 speed automatic gearbox gives the driver a very refined smooth city drive, or a full on surprise all other road users with the performance of this incredible Defender 90. Something this good deserves a great interior so to finish we have removed the whole interior, added our comprehensive sound proofing and carpeting, then added four bespoke sports comfort Icon seats with deep padding to maximise comfort and covered in black leathers with quilted stitch. All the door cards and dash assembly have also been covered to the same standard to match.
