Sorry, too late !
The first Land Rover was introduced on April 30th 1948 during the Amsterdam motorshow in the Netherlands. Its shape wasn’t chosen by a designer at the period, it was only dictated by its function of adventurer and all terrain! At the end of the 80s, the Land Rover 90 and 110, heir of the Series I, II and III, was renamed Defender until the production of the model stopped at the end of 2015. Its design has changed very little during its career. This allowed to maintain a maximum compatibility with older versions, but above all the Defender quickly became a real driving legend and any change in the design would make the Defender lovers blame the manufacturer!
Just before the production stopped, Cool & Vintage, the renowned Portuguese company based in Lisbon, specialised in the restoration and the personalization of Defenders. From recent models, Cool & Vintage put the Defenders entirely naked and restore them adopting a retro style and very high-end finishes. The Defender that we offer here is a 2008 model, equipped with the Ford 4-cylinder 2.4 L diesel engine of 122 hp with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The colour is the Keswick Green and the car was equipped as an old Defender: front with steel grid and bumper, doors with steel frame, tilting handles and sliding windows, wheels, cloth cover with side and rear removable windows. The interior is entirely covered with a luxurious beige leather: seats and backseats, inner doors, entire dashboard and steering wheel. High quality carpets cover the rear of the car where you can remove the backseats to have a spacious cargo area. This restoration perfectly combines the modern comfort of the chassis and the level of equipment, with the luxurious atmosphere on board and the incomparable vintage look! Our Defender is at ease in muddy paths of the countryside and on the roads and cobblestones leading to the most prestigious gastronomic establishments.
The chassis of the car was entirely refurbished and the engine disassembled and completely overhauled. Showing an original 65 215 km, the clock of our Defender was not put to zero when its restoration ended and the car only drove few hundreds kilometres since its restoration. It will be delivered to its future owner with its contrôle technique and its European papers.
