The Land Rover Defender is an iconic off-road vehicle that has been in production since 1948. But while the Defender is known for its toughness and versatility, it's not exactly famous for comfort or a lot of performance. That's why some companies have specialized in restoring and modifying the Defender to make it a modern and luxurious off-roader. And one of these companies is The Landrovers, which is based in the Netherlands and supplies customers worldwide. The Landrovers offers different models of modified Defenders, all of which can be built individually according to customers' wishes. And one of the most impressive models is The Granser, which is based on a 110 Defender 1992. This was completely disassembled and rebuilt, receiving a new engine, gearbox, body, interior and many other improvements.
1992 Land Rover Defender
The Defender Restomod's engine is a 6,2-liter General Motors V8 that produces around 430 hp and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Defender accelerates from 6,5 to 0 km/h in just 100 seconds and reaches a top speed of over 200 km/h. To handle this performance, the chassis was equipped with new shock absorbers, springs and brakes. In addition, the Restomod still has all-wheel drive with a limited-slip differential and off-road reduction.
The body of The Granser has also been completely redesigned and given a new satin blue paint finish. The bumpers, fender flares, side bars and roof rails are finished in black to create a contrast. The headlights, taillights and indicators are also equipped with ultra-modern LED technology. The wheels are 18-inch alloy wheels with BFGoodrich all-terrain tires.

The interior is a place of luxury and comfort. The seats are upholstered in grey-blue leather and have a heating and cooling function. The dashboard is also lined with leather and includes a modern infotainment system with a touchscreen, navigation, rear view camera and a sound system. The steering wheel is made of fine wood and even has an electric adjustment. In addition, the trunk offers plenty of space for luggage or equipment of any kind.
This Defender Restomod is an example of how a classic off-roader can be successfully converted so that it works both off-road and on-road. However, the vehicle is priced at $219.000, which is more than a new Mercedes-AMG G 63 costs. However, for those looking for a unique and exclusive Defender, The Granser is sure to be an enticing option.
