This 27-year-old Defender 110 is in better shape than some brand-new cars
E.C.D. Automotive Design just keeps pushing out one luxed-up Def restomod after another. Today’s Land Rover Defender 110 Project Galena is no exception.
The one-off SUV comes based on a 1993 model and boasts plenty of extra LED lighting, 18-inch Kahn Defend 1983 wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich All-Terrain 265/65 R18 tires, a Borla exhaust, and a Frontrunner roof rack. The body is greyish blue, and the roof is white for contrast.
The tuner puts the old Defender on an in-house air suspension kit that we first saw used in the 2018 Project Katama. As per the usual, the stock engine is no more, and a shining new L92 V8 6.2 toils in its place under the hood, delivering around 400 hp (300 kW) to all four wheels by means of a six-speed auto gearbox.
Inside, Puma Classic seats represent the front row, and the remaining two rows take advantage of premium leather upholstery in light beige and black. Further highlights include an Evander Wood steering wheel and a modern Alpine infotainment system.
