On its way to a well-deserved retirement, the Land Rover Defender still fuels the imagination of reputable tuners such as Startech as even after all these years it remains one of the most sought-after off-roaders ever made. This customized variant is based on the Defender 110 Station Wagon and can be had in both five- and seven-seat configurations.

Work started on the outside where the body has received an attractive Corris Grey Metallic paint which is contrasted by the Santorini Black roof. We also notice some body changes such as the extended fender flares, aluminum skid plate and tubular side steps while the rear windows have been tinted. The stock wheels were also removed to make room for an 18-inch Monostar D set that comes bundled with BF Goodrich All-Terrain A/T off-road tires.

Startech also customized the interior cabin of this Defender 110 Station Wagon which now benefits from a sport steering wheel, heated front seats and a special gear knob made from aluminum. They managed to create a premium feel thanks to the Tan Light Brown / Ebony Black leather upholstery featuring diamond quilting and there’s also a set of alloy pedals along with stainless steel scuff plates. Rounding off the list of cabin changes is the Alpine infotainment system which comes with GPS as well as a rearview camera.

Motivation comes from a turbodiesel 2.2-liter engine delivering 122 bhp and a maximum torque of 360 Nm channeled to both axles via a six-speed manual transmission. The Defender wasn’t built to take down speed records so the 0-100 kmph sprint time in 15.8 seconds and 145 kmph top speed are far from being impressive.

Startech says they are already taking orders for Defender their tricked out 110 Station Wagon and only 68 units will ever be made, with pricing kicking off at €67,990 (4.8 million INR) for the five-seater and €69,900 (4.95 million INR) if you go for the seven-seat model.
