Himalaya-tuned Land Rover Defender 110 costs more than a new Bentayga
The bodywork is pretty much all that remains stock in this extensive restomod, while the rest has been taken completely apart and reassembled anew with better components thrown in. The implementation costs of the project piled up to U.S. $250,000.
Himalaya started by engine-swapping the Def to the famous LS3 6.2 V8 mill by General Motors. The same unit churns out 525 hp (391 kW) and 495 Nm (365 lb-ft) in the Chevrolet Corvette series. The transmission is six-speed automatic. The tuner also made numerous changes to the air conditioning, wiring, suspension, brakes, and noise proofing.
There are no interior photos available, but the company says it has finished the cabin of the car with fine leather and installed a new dashboard, a sports steering wheel, an Alpine audio system, and an up-to-date infotainment system. Certain parts are trimmed with carbon fiber and encrusted with diamonds.
On the outside, the truck boasts a roll cage, increased ride height, a winch, and Himalaya badges.
