This latest custom Defender 110 from ECD Automotive Design pushes alot of my buttons. First off, it is already completely finished, is in the USA, and has a huge list of mods and design tweaks.
Most exciting is the engine swap to a GM crate LS3 making more than 400 ponies and sent to the wheels via a six-speed automatic.
No word on pricing for this one-off but links below for more info!
