Bespoke coachbuilder Prindiville Design has launched a new Limited Edition Land Rover Defender as part of the celebration of the model's debut in their collection, which adds up to some of the most in-demand supercars like the Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari 458 Italia. This model is only limited to 25 units all over the world. It is designed to provide individuality matched with a greater level of practicality and comfort.
It is based on the recent Defender 90 Hard Top model. The Limited Edition model is hand-assembled by highly skilled engineers at Prindiville's manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom near Silverstone. It is made in accordance with the customer's bespoke exterior and interior specification. Enhancements to the braking system, suspension, engine and cooling are carried out by Defender specialist Alive Tuning, who is popular in this field for its unrivalled quality, attention to detail and extensive experience.
The Limited Edition comes in a selection of four various power upgrades, which gradually boost the output of the 2.4-liter TDi powerplant to 190 bhp from 122. Matched with the dual-range six speed transmission, and the additions of silicone hoses, turbocharger and a high flow intercooler, this means that acceleration is 60 mph from a standstill in only 10 seconds (0 to 100km/h), and peak torque is at 460Nm.
The transmission is upgradeable to a tiptronic or an automatic gearbox. The Limited Edition model's standard features include five-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, coupled with a high-performance braking system thanks to the company's bespoke six-pot calipers and sport discs. Customized performance springs also enable greater automobile stability and speed.
Each of the 25 who will own the Limited Edition model can specify a bespoke paint scheme in either a metallic or matt finish from the company's very own palette. The exterior showcases a range of features only available to the Limited Edition model, including a rear Prindiville signature badge, chrome side protection runners, a titanium high performance sports exhaust, ribbed undershield, LED front and rear headlamps, and front and rear parking cameras and sensors.
The model has a full leather interior made of the finest Italian hides. It also provides superior comfort, thanks to the Cobra sport seats accented with hand-stitched piping. It also comes with complementary leather steering wheel, bespoke center console storage unit and alcantara driver and passenger carpets, all tailored based on the owner's color selection. Each of Prindiville's Limited Edition Defenders equally receives a dashboard-mounted numbered aluminum plaque commemorating the series in the company's prestigious collection.
