Florida-based E.C.D. Automotive Design is known for high-end custom luxury vehicles (classic British beauty meets modern luxury) and just rolled out their latest creation – a 565-horsepower custom Land Rover Defender 110 Crew-Cab with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Called Project Burning Green, the 1989 custom Defender is painted in satin Volcanic Moss Pearl, a beautiful olive green with gold pearl. The custom 4×4 is a statement-maker for the downtown city streets and also perfect for an off-road adventure outside the city.

Under the hood, the truck is powered by a 6.2-liter Chevrolet LS3 V8 engine. The exterior is striking, bold and confident – outfitted with a Kahn Designs wide-body kit and 20-inch Kahn Mondial wheels. The luxurious interior is fully upholstered in ultra-premium Porsche Nappa Sand leather. A first for E.C.D. Automotive Design, this Defender 110 crew-cab features a custom dual-opening canvas roof – so the driver feels like they’re driving a convertible, adding to the fun factor.

Project Burning Green, at a cost of $195,000, was commissioned for a client. If you like the vehicle, reach out to E.C.D. They’ll rebuild this one for you, if you want. Options are unlimited. You can head to E.C.D. Automotive Design’s website for more information, or give them a call at (407) 483-4825.
