KISSIMMEE, FLORIDA, February 26, 2020 — E.C.D. Automotive Design, known for its luxurious, high-end restored classic Land Rovers, recently delivered a fully restored 1987 Land Rover Defender 110 powered by pure modern muscle.
This restored Land Rover Defender 110 is painted in gloss Bonatti Grey Metallic, an original Land Rover color, with matte black wheel spats and front grille. Called “Project Duke,” the Defender 110 is powered by a Chevrolet 6.2L V8 engine that produces an impressive 403-horsepower. Paired to a full Borla Performance exhaust, Project Duke is impossible to miss.
The interior of Project Duke is nothing short of luxurious. Recaro Orthoped seats provide ultimate comfort with a 60/40 split middle-row, all wrapped in premium Italian Spinneybeck Volo Black leather with white stitching for contrast. The full range of features was selected by the client through E.C.D. Automotive Design’s fully immersive Luxury Design Experience.
Outfitted with E.C.D’s adjustable air suspension for superior comfort, recovery equipment such as a Warn Industries winch, and all-terrain tires, this is the perfect 4×4 for mixed street and off-road adventures.
