Everyone’s doing that these days, isn’t it? Keep track of things here.
10. Ares Design Defender
Dany Bahar’s customized Defender. Fifty-three of them were meant to be manufactured at a cost of €215,000 apiece, and there’s definitely a V8 under the hood…
9. Arkonik Gryphon D110
Didn’t we promise Arkonik will do everything for your Defender? The Gryphon D110 is an excellent off-road restomod. That’s not something we see very frequently, is it?
8. Khan Flying Huntsman 110 6×6 Double Cab Pickup Soft-Top
We were certain to come across Khan at some time. The Flying Huntsman 110 6×6 Double Cab Pickup Soft-Top is a mash-up of all the company’s Defender alternatives. We’re at a loss for words — just look at it.
7. Zero Labs Electric Series III
Another Defender EV, I see. Zero Labs began with magnificent Ford Broncos and progressed to lovely Series III Land Rovers. Buyers may choose between an 85 or 100-kWh battery with a range of up to 235 miles and an e-motor with a power output of up to 600bhp.
6. Arkonik Defender V8
Arkonik is another one of those firms that will do almost anything to any vintage (or body style) of Defender if you deliver a big enough check.
5. Land Rover Defender Works V8
Why should you let the tuners have all of the fun when you can make a tidy sum doing it yourself? That was Land Rover’s idea when it began upgrading vintage Defenders with 5.0-litre Jaguar V8 engines producing 400bhp and 380lb ft of torque. Each one set you back £150,000.

4. Overfinch Soft-Top
Leeds-based Overfinch is widely renowned for its bold Range Rover adaptations, so it should come as no surprise that they once created a one-of-a-kind soft-top Defender powered by a 450bhp Chevrolet-sourced LS3 V8.
3. Himalaya ‘Spectre’ 110 Crew Cab
It’s the Himalayas all over again. It’s their Spectre-spec Bond villain Defender this time. Isn’t it cool?
2. Twisted NAS-E
As you’ll see later in this collection, V8-powered restomod Defenders seem to have become increasingly frequent, as you’ll see. Twisted Automotive, located in Yorkshire, will sell you one, but it also produces the NAS-E, a $185,00 EV Defender available only in the United States. A NAS-E Plus with 320bhp is also available.
1. Himalaya Summit Series
The Himalaya Summit Series is a 650bhp LT4 V8-engined Defender, not a cheap waterproof coat, as the name suggests. The price ranges between $250,000 and $300,000
