ECD Project Family Vacation

Project Family Vacation is the name of the latest masterpiece to roll out of the East Coast Defender Florida-based workshop. This meticulously-rebuilt Land Rover Defender 90 boasts a new body kit, an interior makeover, and a modern V8, making it the ultimate summer adventure vehicle with some serious off-roading gear. The beast is now powered by a 6,2-liter LS3 V8 from Corvette paired with a six-speed manual transmission, and is packed with plenty of modern-day features. A spare wheel now resides on the hood, additional lights adorn both bumpers and the roof, and the new winch at the front end is ready to pull you out of trouble. There is also an upgraded Fox suspension system and a set of high-performance brakes that could outdo a modern sports car. In the interior, the seats have been wrapped in leather, and it has been equipped with an NRG ST-065 steering wheel with a Land Rover center cap, nostalgia VT Series gauges, and an aftermarket stereo system, complete with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay. The British SUV is finished in a gorgeous Coniston Green, contrasted by the 8-spoke steel wheels painted in satin black and wrapped in BFGoodrich all-terrain tires. Head over to ECD where you can choose your base model and begin your custom design journey. watch the video below

HONDA CBR 100F CUSTOM SUPERBIKE

This amazing machine took Ian McElroy two years to build, and if you spot a little of the KTM RC8 in there, you’re right—the Austrian superbike was one of the inspirations for McElroy’s stealth-fighter angles and curves. The bodywork is formed from sheets of aluminum meticulously welded together, and the original gauges have been replaced by a Veypor setup that can also record G-force, 0-60, quarter mile time and lap time as well as speed and RPM.
