Overfinch has unveiled a special edition Defender to celebrate 40 years of its existence. The company is planning to create just five specially commissioned Overfinch Defenders, which also served as the company's way of acknowledging Land Rover's move to stop production of the Defender.
Each of these special edition Overfinch Defenders will feature an individually numbered plaque. As expected of Overfinch, it treated the Land Rover Defender with an array of new features that smoothly blends modern and traditional design.
For instance, its signature Overfinch bonnet and front grille create a great contrast with the rest of the bodywork. Its front bumper dons integrated LED daytime running lights and spot lamps. Its side sills and rear quarter panels -- finished in black satin – featured checkered plating.
Also, the Defender's aluminum fuel cap and exterior door handles feature Overfinch branding. Overfinch also provided the special edition with exterior elements like a rear step with an electric tow bar, a swing away rear arm, painted mirror backs, and upgraded rear LED lighting.
Accentuating the Overfinch Defender's modern look are 18-inch Apollo alloy wheels in a gloss black finish with a diamond turned face. Last but not the least, it comes with Overfinch's trademark bonnet tailgate lettering in polished black chrome with sandblasted inner.
The cabin, meanwhile, features Overfinch's complete leather trim package on Recaro front seats. These seats feature a bespoke 40th crest stitched into the headrest to mark Overfinch's anniversary.
Moreover, the cabin dons rear occasional use folding seats, passenger grab handle, cubby box lid, headliner and the dashboard top – all featuring premium Bridge of Weir ebony leather with Cirrus leather inserts.
Likewise, the gearshift, range selector, steering wheel and handbrake are wrapped in highest quality leather thanks to Overfinch's Control Pack. Its pedals are also made from aluminum.
Furthermore, the vehicle features sport-style instrument dials, DAB radio, a reversing camera and a Bluetooth connected Alpine Double Din satellite navigation. Interested buyers could acquire an Overfinch Defender for just over £70,000.
Kevin Sloane, Overfinch Chairman, remarked that the special edition vehicle provides customers a chance to own a piece of exclusive Overfinch and Defender history.
He noted that Overfinch is the global leader in Land Rover enhancements, and with the Defender being the most famous car in the world, it is only appropriate that Land Rover Defender marks their 40th anniversary. Sloane added that the five special edition vehicles were designed to represent Overfinch's 40-year history as well as Defender's heritage.
