Supercar-inspired Design in this Classic British Defender 110

E.C.D. Automotive Design, known for its prestigious, high-end luxury vehicles, built its latest Defender 110 with design inspiration from modern supercars.
The custom wide-body Defender 110, also known as Project Soho, was designed with inspiration from the client’s collection of modern supercars. It’s finished in Quantum Gray, an Audi original color, but in an eggshell finish chosen by the client for a more exotic look.

There’s no shortage of power in Project Soho which features a 6.2L V8 engine that has been tuned to produce up to 565 horsepower. Adding to the modern dimension of this custom British icon, is the edition of E.C.D’s fully adjustable air suspension, providing an ultra-smooth ride, making it ideal for comfortable daily use. The difference in ride quality between the standard suspension and the air suspension is unmistakable. The interior of Project Soho was designed with elements influenced by McLaren. Luxurious Alcantara suede and premium Italian leather throughout. The Corbeau RRS seats are upholstered in Spinneybeck Prime Meridian Grey leather and grey suede with Carmen Red leather trim. The finished look reminds you of the interior of the elite 720S supercar.

“You could think that grey suede and red leather shouldn’t be in a Defender. I think when you see Project Soho, the opinion changes. It’s an absolute showstopper,” says Tom Humble, co-founder of E.C.D. Automotive Design.

E.C.D. AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN COMPLETES WIDE-BODY DEFENDER 110, ONE OF THE FASTEST THE COMPANY HAS BUILT TO DATE

E.C.D. Automotive Design, known for their prestigious, high-end luxury vehicles, recently completed one of the fastest Defender 110’s the company has ever built.

The custom wide-body Defender 110, named Project Camper, is finished in a beautiful Rosello Red gloss paint. The color is quite stunning, appearing to move from a bright red to an almost-black finish depending on where the truck is and what time of day it is. It’s a color option available on several of the newer Land Rover models.

Project Camper is powered by an upgraded 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine producing 565-horsepower and paired with a dual exhaust system from Borla Performance. The owner of this Defender 110 chose not to have a roll cage installed, which significantly reduces the weight of the truck in comparison to builds with the roll-cage. The result is apparent when accelerating in Project Camper, a pure put-you-back-in-your-seat feeling, making this custom Defender 110 one of the quickest trucks E.C.D. Automotive Design has built to date.

The interior of Project Camper features beautiful ivory-white leather and suede throughout. It provides a stark contrast to the dark exterior. The front and middle-row seats are heated and ventilated Corbeau Trailcat seats while the rear loading area features four inward-facing jump seats. The white and black interior

“The weight reduction in comparison to our other builds, paired with the upgraded LS3, makes this D110 one of the quickest trucks we’ve ever built to date,” says Tom Humble, founder of E.C.D. Automotive Design.

E.C.D. Automotive Design remains a leader in producing custom British classics that feature a culmination of new technology, high-end luxury, and performance.
