Take a short look at the used car market and you’ll see that there’s no shortage of tuned Defenders. Most of them have been modified for off-road use, which also happens to be the case with Chelsea Truck Company’s latest project.
The End Edition, as it is named, has received a complete exterior makeover consisting of LED headlights, a new front grille, wider fenders with visible bolts, steel bumpers, bonnet vents, tubular side steps and a matte black look, among others. The Defender End Edition also sports privacy rear glass, a stainless steel exhaust with double tailpipes and 9×20-inch Mondial Retro Volcanic wheels wrapped in 275/55 tires.
Inside, the British SUV offers seating for up to seven and gets a similar update, with black being the dominating shade. There’s new leather upholstery, front sports seats with heating function, double three-spoke steering wheel, a Churchill Time Clock fascia insert, vented pedals and hard-wearing rubber floor mats. As for modern-age amenities, they include satellite navigation, an upgraded sound system and front and rear dashcams.
As for the donor vehicle, it is a 2016 Defender 110 powered by a 122 horsepower, 2.2-liter diesel linked to an automatic transmission, with two previous owners and only 15,000 miles (24,140 km) on the clock. It’s a right-hand drive model in search of a new home, for which Kahn is asking £84,999 ($107,910/€95,617), or about the same as a new Range Rover, which starts from £83,655 ($106,204/€94,106) in the UK.
