Heritage Customs is planning five open-top Land Rover Defender builds

The Land Rover Defender is about to be treated to a unique open-top bodystyle but this won’t exactly be a manufacturer factory product. Defender specialists Heritage Customs will be taking the job on for five very exclusive customers.

Using the 90 bodystyle as a base, the Land Rover Defender convertible will paying tribute to its roots with a foldable canvas top. While only existing in digital state at the moment, Heritage Customs confirms that three colour schemes will be available for the product and that prices will start at €138 500 (R2,5 million).

The blue shade is called Côte d’Azur and is contrasted by black pieces found on the bumpers and lower edge of the body as well as a Cognac Brown roof. To give it a classical look, the axles are fitted with 22-inch wheels with whitewall tyres while the interior is kitted out with an array of copper trimmings.

The second colour option is the Kokkini Paralia shade which boasts a dark matte red hue contrasted by black bumpers and a matching roof. Gunmetal ornaments are used to add excitement to the interior.

The last scheme is the Solihull Sand which uses a green shade with grey bumpers and a beige roof. This model sports a set of 20-inch steel wheels with a white finish while both gunmetal and copper inserts are applied to the cabin.
