The respected Land Rover Defender is drawing to a close.
Sales since 1983, planned by the whole-
New model 2018.
Of course, Americans are used to not having them around.
A small part off-
Sports cars were imported in the 1990 s, but when those pesky safety and emissions regulations were too harsh for them, it was not worth the Land Rover decision to keep them up to date, so it was no longer sold here
This is at the tip of the SUV explosion, and in retrospect, it may not be the best idea.
A few years later, rival Mercedes-
Mercedes-Benz began to import the luxury version of the older G-
Class, still on sale today, starts at $218,000.
Land Rover also has a model that sells for the same price, but it is a super sports car.
Smooth Range Rover.

Class is its unique old combination
High-performance engines and time utilitarianism for luxury decoration.
It\'s not hard to imagine that it would be cool for a defender to finish the game the same way.
In fact, you don\'t have to imagine it at all, because others have already imagined it. California-

The door Defender 110 designed for customers perfectly blends classic style with modern facilities and performance.
Jonathan Ward, founder of the company, said the idea behind it was to imagine what machines they might do if the original designers were not bound by budget constraints.
ICON is a 1993 model at the beginning. it is one of only 500 models that Land Rover officially imported to the United States. S.
Ward kept the frame and body parts that were still intact, but he almost replaced everything else.
But that doesn\'t mean it\'s beyond recognition.
Ward\'s goal is to maintain the appearance and taste of the vehicle while enhancing the vehicle.
This starts with the replacement of plastic parts such as door handles and knobs, as well as other irrelevant metal parts, including door and hood hinges, reproduced with carefully crafted aluminum on CNC machines.
Did LED lights exist in 1993?
You can find so much here.
It\'s the same inside.
Almost all surfaces are metal, carpeted, covered with Alcantara, or decorated with buffalo leather, which feels stronger and softer than your typical cowhide.
New, retro.

The dismount in the cargo area provides accommodation for six people.
Wiring system-
New so please don\'t joke about UK electronics.
While the inventory transfer box is still there, it has been upgraded and paired with a MIL spec axle connected to 110 via a suspension developed by renowned Land Rover expert Twisted Automotive.
The power delivered to these axles came from GM. Rod 6. 2-
The upgraded V8 crate motor with a rated power of 430 hp is significantly higher than the inventory of 3. 9-
The 180 hp of the Liter v8.
Before you start the case for ICON, keep in mind that the engine is based on 1960 s-
Time Buick V8, so the connection of GM has some cooperation.
Also, as Ward points out, it\'s much easier and cheaper to find parts that update or repair electronicsBetter than out-of-

In addition, the combination of British courage and the power of the United States often produces something great, such as defeating the evil empire and Shelby Cobra.
The icon Guard movement has a similar authority, which sounds great.

The ride felt familiar, but it was very clean, and there were a lot of old-fashioned scruples.

The hostel in front is very close and the driver doesn\'t have much legroom and the steering wheel sits in a strange position.
The fare for the second row of passengers is higher, but in the center-
When you\'re out on patrol, facing a jump seat can be a good place to exit quickly, and two kids who play well may feel different from each other\'s gaze on long trips.
Frankly, I don\'t know if the last part is a concern for the client who commissioned this version, but I can tell you that he spent about $350,000 to achieve this.
Yes, that\'s a lot even by ICON standards.
Toyota\'s FJs and Ford\'s Broncos sell nearly $150,000 in bread and butter, many of them.
But don\'t expect to see more of these Playboy defenders, never at a lower price.
As mentioned, there are not many donated vehicles outside, at least not in the United States. S.
Most of the circulation is good and often sold for 6figures, as is.
Also, although the old truck was great, the quality of the original building was surprisingly dark.
