London-based tuner Prindiville turns its attention to a British car this time, upgrading 25 units of the Land Rover Defender.
These limited edition models benefit from enhancements to the suspension, braking system, cooling, and engine by Defender specialists, Lincolnshire-based Alive Tuning, plus a refined exterior design, which in this dark shade looks as cool as Special Air Service’s CQB outfit.
While customers can choose a bespoke paint scheme in either a matt or metallic finish from Prindviille’s very own palette, the body gets some of extra garnish from Prindiville catalog, including signature badge, a titanium high performance sports exhaust, chrome side protection runners, LED front and rear headlamps, ribbed undershield, in addition to front and rear parking sensors and cameras.
Inside the cabin you get Cobra sport seats dressed with hand-stitched piping and fine leather, as well as matching leather steering wheel, alcantara driver and passenger carpets, and bespoke centre console storage unit, all built and tailored according to the owner’s colour selection. The car is also loaded with in-car entertainment and communication systems.
The main feature, however, is a dashboard-mounted numbered aluminium plaque.
As for the engine and performance, the 2.4-litre TDi powerplant is boosted from 122 to 190 bhp, and a peak torque of 460Nm. It takes 10 seconds to hit 60mph from nought, which isn’t bad, considering the 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels with chunky tires.
This car is one very special Defender, but it’s a pricey piece of kit. It is available to order now at a cost of £52,000 or US$81,500.
