In the Netherlands, Heritage Customs creates fascinating refined vehicles based on the current Land Rover Defender 110, with each individual vehicle being absolutely unique. Customers have an extensive program for individualization to choose from. For example, various exterior and interior elements can be finished in rust, copper, brass or bronze. These can also be ordered for any normal Defender via the Heritage Customs webshop. Together with the team, any interested party can configure a completely unique car and then have it built. This process takes at least 1.5 months, depending on the effort involved. Via the company’s website, 12 different variants can already be discovered, each with a conversion cost of € 20,950.
Various copper-colored accents
As the newest variant debuts just the Valiance Verdigris, whose name comes from the natural patina of copper. To match, the body gets various accents in “Magic Metal satin copper”. These include the brand lettering, the side air outlets, the treads on the hood and small elements on the rear bumper. For the rest of the body, Heritage Customs uses a stylish green metallic, which, like the color of the seats, is inspired by the first forefather of all Land Rovers. The pre-production prototype R01, better known as HUE166 from its registration, is still considered an icon by brand fans today. In the wheel arches of the new interpretation are 22-inch forged wheels in “Space Cowboy” design with diamond cut finish.
Inside, beige leather and Alcantara provide a reminiscence of HUE166’s soft top color. The seat center panels feature diamond-shaped quilting. All stitchings on the seats, door cards, dashboard and center tunnel are finished in a shade of green to match the exterior color. “Magic Metal satin copper” is again used for the steering wheel spokes, the central control element on the dashboard, the door handles and the total of 100 screws on the door panels. Heritage Customs makes no changes to the technical basis of the Land Rover Defender 110.
