A Land Rover Defender is one of the most iconic off-road vehicles in the world. And it’s no wonder that many people want to customize them to fit their unique tastes and lifestyle.
How long do Defenders last?
From denim interiors to bespoke jewelry, there are companies around the world that specialize in making custom Defenders for the most discerning of enthusiasts. From retro outfitters to high-end coachbuilders, these companies have all turned to the popular SUV for inspiration.
Dutch coachbuilder Heritage custom landrover focuses on making each Land Rover Defender personalized, focusing on the client’s needs and ideas. They offer their clients a variety of upgrades to make the Defender more personal, from Magic Metal to upholstery made with furniture-grade materials that are 30 percent lighter and emit far less CO2 during production.
In addition to the typical options that any Defender owner might expect, Osprey also opted for an aftermarket head unit featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It fits in the standard double-DIN slot and is surprisingly responsive for an aftermarket unit.
Aside from the modern features, this Defender retains its original equipment and is still very much a Land Rover. The original steering wheel, column stalks and climate control are still in place, as are the instrument cluster and radio.
The seller has enjoyed this vehicle the past few years from his home base in Fort McMurray, Canada. He’s been taking it off-road a lot, and the car has performed admirably.
