East Coast Defender Pedigree

"Project Pedigree" is the name of one of the latest masterpieces to roll out of the East Coast Defender Florida-based workshop. The impressive custom build is a classic take on what a Land Rover Defender can be, but with modifications that make it even more capable for outdoor adventures. The off-road beast was fitted with a brand new Chevrolet LS3 engine with 6-speed automatic transmission, capable of producing a staggering 420 hp! Other details include an expedition roof rack with ladder, a full-width LED bar and rear LED work light, an eye-catching Momo Indy woodgrain steering wheel that contrasts wonderfully with the all-black leather interior, and a Warn VR 8000 winch for getting out of sticky situations. Its exterior color stands out in particular, a bronze-green that matches perfectly with the traditional white roof. If you’re interested, ECD is currently taking reservations for 2017 builds.
