Menacing in Vulkan Grey Pearl, Military-Style Defender 110 is Apocalypse-Ready


KISSIMMEE, FL – June 18, 2019 – E.C.D. Automotive Design, known for their prestigious, high-end luxury vehicles, has delivered a military-style Defender 110 built to take on anything mother nature throws in its path.

Project Neo is a fully-capable, wide-body 4×4 that looks menacing on the exterior with a paint color that’s well suited to match — Vulkan Grey Pearl in an eggshell finish. The black 20” Kahn Mondial Retro wheels on a hefty set of 32” BF Goodrich tires, rear window guards, door handle protectors, and black checker-plating complete the dark, bold look of this Defender 110.

Under the hood of Project Neo sits a 565-horsepower 6.2L LS3 V8 engine with upgraded Hooker headers and a Borla Performance exhaust. Not only does this Defender 110 look menacing, but it sounds it too. The GM LS3 engine was chosen by the client for its unmatched reliability, which will be necessary in the event of a real apocalypse. For now, it’s the ideal drivetrain for daily driving and rugged off-road adventure.

While rugged on the outside, this military-style Defender 110 is pure luxury on the inside. The interior seats up to six passengers and features Corbeau RRS seats upholstered in premium black and charcoal leathers with carbon fiber accents throughout. Project Neo also features additional storage room in the form of a hidden storage box inside the vehicle. Modern features include wireless charging for mobile devices, a premium JL Audio sound system, a back-up camera, rear air-conditioning for passengers, and Apple Car Play.

Project Neo is one of 36 bespoke trucks built by E.C.D. per the calendar year.
