Osprey Cars has just unveiled its latest project, this time unveiling a custom-built classic Land Rover Defender that makes the new Defender seem a little vanilla.
The restomod specialist first started work on the powertrain and chassis of the Defender, installing it with a new 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine pumping out an impressive 435 hp and 425 lb-ft of torque. This engine is coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission. A HD LT230 transfer case is also featured, as is a performance exhaust, stainless brake lines, and stainless fuel lines.
Supporting this new powertrain is a complete revamp of the suspension system that includes a subtle lift, terra firma shocks and springs, a terra firma steering stabilizer, HD drag link and track rod, and HD axles.
As always, Osprey also focused extensively on the exterior of the Defender and have painted the body in a stunning shade dubbed Nara Bronze. Contrasting this paint are black fenders and accents. The off-roader is also rolling on 18-inch Kahn wheels with Cooper AT tires and features LED lights both front and rear.
The interior of the Defender rounds out the alterations. Most notably, the cabin now features nine leather seats, including heated front seats. The headliner is clad in Alcantara to add to the luxury of the Defender and the off-roader has also been upgraded with power windows at the front, keyless entry, and a double din stereo with DVD, Bluetooth, navigation, Apple CarPlay, and a reversing camera. An eight-speed audio system is also featured.
