This 1988 Restomod Land Rover Defender 130 pickup can currently be purchased for nearly $ 190.000. It is true that it is complete restauriert, but it's still quite expensive. The bespoke project even lets the brand new one Defender with supercharged V8 engine and 525 hp seem like a bargain. Built by OCC (Osprey Custom Cars), however, the one-off is also in the condition of a new car. To this end, it has been extensively modified by Osprey. It is currently available for sale on the tuner's website. For the price there is also a current Porsche 911 Carrera and if you add just under 14.000 dollars on top, you are on the road with the new 911 Turbo S (992). However, this is also a comparison between apples and oranges. Actually, you should compare the OCC Defender with a Lamborghini Urus from 2021. And that costs just under to $ 220.000. In general, such a vehicle should not be compared with another at all. If you have a rebuilt classic Defender then you don't want a XNUMX or a Urus. It should just be a Defender!

This 130 pickup was made in 1988 and was painted in Fuji White. That is still the case. But now he has one powder-coated exoskeleton and many new components on the body. You can see a Custom grille, a new Puma bonnet, Bumpers made of metal with additional LED lights in front and as a visual highlight Kahn Design 20 inch light alloy wheels of the Mondial Retro Light type with 275/65 off-road tires from Cooper. And inside? There are diamond quilted ones Leather upholstery, Puma dashboard, an improved HVAC system with controls made of anodized aluminum, a specially made one dashboard and in the middle is a 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system installed. Little gimmicks like one wireless charging pad in the center console, two USB ports, one LED ambient lighting, Rockford Fosgate speaker system, Accents in Piano black, one Remote control remote start function for the engine, electric windows and a modern one Central locking system are attending.

And also the details around the driving dynamics are pretty spectacular. The Defender has one High performance chassis built in, there are powerful ones disc brakes on both axes, one massive Underbody protection, a specially made exhaust system and even an extensive additional soundproofing is built in. The absolute highlight is of course there under the hood. Because the one-off is driven by one 6,2 liter LS3 V8 with 435 hp and 576 Nm torque. He's on a Six-speed automatic with High performance transfer case and all wheel drive coupled. At the end... You can do it!
