And with 430 PS & 550 NM torque, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, this is impressively successful. After all, the oldi now has almost four times the performance of the original. On the outside, the vehicle has a glossy finish in "Aintree green" and in the interior, Project Harmony has installed high-quality Torino Terrier leather in elegant brown. And all conversions by ECD usually contain a lot of modern technology such as WiFi, Bluetooth, a sound system or a new instrument cluster. This vehicle is not! Unlike the defenders built by ECD so far, the Project Harmony retains everything as it was then. This is especially true for the classic big white displays on the original dashboard. And this Defender has nevertheless devoured incredible 2.200 working hours. And the result is enchantingly nostalgic and absolutely breathtaking.
