A beautiful and powerful custom build from Land Rover specialist Arkonik.

Leading independent Land Rover Defender specialist company Arkonik restores, upgrades, and customizes vintage D90 and D110 Land Rover models to perfection. However, with the custom 1984 RHD Land Rover Defender “UJO”, the team has created Arkonik’s most powerful build yet. The car showcases the company’s capabilities as well as the features available in the new facility in Charleston, SC. As stylish as it is powerful, this restomod LS3 Land Rover Defender “UJO” features a Stratos Blue blue metallic color with a complementing Cream Pearl roof. The stylish design aims to reproduce the look of the founder’s very first Defender.

The car comes with a 6.2 liter LS3 engine with an impressive 430 Hp. TAROX® 6 piston brakes, Bilstein suspension, Truck-Lite® Heated Twin-Cat LED headlights, and a Magnaflow® stainless steel exhaust are some of the technical features. The team also used EVO Corse® DakarZero 8.5Jx18” aluminum alloy wheels with Cooper Tires® Discoverer tires.

In the cabin, this restomod boasts a heated steering wheel and heated seats. The latter feature a Chelsea Burnt Oak autograin leather trim as well as tweed inserts. A top quality audio system and a Dakota® digital instrument panel are some of the features of the state-of-the-art interior. If you love this build, you can order one just like it from Arkonik. You can find out more details with a direct inquiry on their website, with the price also available on request. Photographs© Arkonik.
