Supercar-inspired Design in this Classic British Defender 110

KISSIMMEE, FL – May 9, 2019 – E.C.D. Automotive Design, known for their prestigious, high-end luxury vehicles, built their latest Defender 110 with design inspiration from modern supercars.

The custom wide-body Defender 110, known as Project Soho, was designed with inspiration from the client’s collection of modern supercars. It’s finished in Quantum Gray, an Audi original color, but in an eggshell finish chosen by the client for a more exotic look.

There’s no shortage of power in Project Soho, which features a 6.2L V8 engine that has been tuned to produce up to 565-horsepower. Adding to the modern dimension of this custom British icon, is the addition of E.C.D’s fully adjustable air suspension, providing an ultra-smooth ride, making it ideal for comfortable daily use. The difference in ride quality between the standard suspension and the air suspension is unmistakable.

The interior of Project Soho was designed with elements influenced by McLaren. Luxurious Alcantara suede and premium Italian leather throughout. The Corbeau RRS seats are upholstered in Spinneybeck Prime Meridian Grey leather and grey suede with Carmen Red leather trim. The finished look reminds you of the interior of the elite 720S supercar.

“You could think that grey suede and red leather shouldn’t be in a Defender. I think when you see Project Soho, the opinion changes. It’s an absolute showstopper,” says Tom Humble, co-founder of E.C.D. Automotive Design.
