Chelsea Truck Company has unveiled a model that pays tribute to the original Land Rover defender.

Since 1948, this towering automotive icon has been going about its business quietly and competently.

Defender has always been one of the world’s toughest and most relentless go-anywhere vehicles. That ‘anywhere’ would traditionally have been vertical mountainsides and searing desert scapes as opposed to cultural events and tree-lined boulevards.

Despite finally getting his hands on the 2020 Defender model, which Afzal Kahn is looking forward to re-model with his distinctive touch, there is still time to celebrate the original model, albeit with a Black military exterior and a CTC styling package.

Entitled the End Edition, this particular model is adorned with a plethora of powerful and luxurious upgrades.

Chelsea Truck Co has reworked substantial aspects of the exterior and interior of the SUV to add a classy, unique style that epitomises opulence.

The exterior is more exclusive than ever before thanks to the addition of new front and rear wide wings with integrated vents and bolt apertures and a new X-Lander front grille with headlight surrounds.

A new front bumper replacement with integrated lighting (Shadow chrome headlights, 2 x Tron lights and 2 x Fog lights) front bumper sump guard, side vents, bonnet hood vents to help cool the engine, tubular side steps, are notable additions whilst a Chelsea Truck Company spare wheel cover proudly flaunts its British roots.

A set of commanding 9 x 20” Mondial retro wheels in Volcanic Black, complete with Cooper Discoverer 275x55x20” tyres (OR Cooper AT/3 Tyres) and painted brake calipers adorn the exterior.

A twin crosshair exhaust system including exhaust shields in stainless steel, 100mm suspension lift, up-rated gas shocks/steering damper and hardwearing mud flaps lend a tough look to the SUV.

Dark-tinted privacy glass leaves onlookers guessing what is on the inside; occupants are treated to a wealth of custom tailored opulence.

Standard seats have been replaced with GTB front and rear folding seats in quilted and perforated Vesuvius Orange leather.

A reupholstered instrument binnacle, centre glove, passenger dashboard and top grab handle are all upholstered to match.

A double 3 spoke steering wheel in billet brushed Satin Aluminium & black leather, vented foot pedals in machined aluminium, hard wearing rubber floor mats, heated front seats, Churchill time clock facia insert, passenger dashboard top and grab handle, rear boot mat in heavy duty rubber and discreet Chelsea Truck Co and Kahn branding completes the package and leaves no-one in any doubt as to the source of this elegant functional design and meticulous attention to detail.

Vehicle is available for £64,999. However, exterior and interior Chelsea Truck Company components are available to buy separately.

Customers are also free to create their very own upgrade package.

In addition, the AF02 ALS registration plate is also available to purchase separately with an asking price of just £6000.
