The LT1-powered Land Rover Defender in the Lamborghini Verde Mantis is, of course, a unique restaurant.
Say hello to the only Land Rover Defender painted in a bright shade of Verde Mantis that rises directly from the Lamborghini palette.
This real Defender will spend the first 25 years of his life in the UK as a work vehicle before being sent to ECD Automotive Design for overhaul. We don’t know how much the overhaul will cost, but it’s obviously not cheap.

ECD Automotive Design began its work with a major overhaul of the Defender’s power unit. The standard engine has been removed and replaced with a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 atmospheric air from the GM combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This engine produces 450 hp. and 465 pound-feet (630 Nm) for good torque and delivers off-road vehicle to 60 mph (96 km / h) in a decent six seconds. The new engine is complemented by reinforced axles, adjustable pneumatic suspension, Brembo brakes and stainless steel Borla extractors.
On the outside, it has not only a Verde mantle, but also a matte version of the amazing paint color. A black convertible tent as opposed to green. The tuner is also equipped with a set of Kahn wheels, a classic Land Rover grille, a front bumper with LED daytime running lights and a new rear bumper. There is also a multi-point winding grid, a rotating wheel conveyor and a full-length side ladder.
The interior was also overhauled, so the SUV now has a 2 + 2 + 2 scheme. In the front and second rows there are heated Recaro Cross Sportster CS seats covered with white leather. The defender is also made of white leather on the control panel, door panel and transmission tunnel. Black rubber mats are ubiquitous with technical features such as Nardi Challenge steering wheel, new gauges, Sony infotainment system, Infinity Kappa speakers and Bluetooth, WiFi, reverse sensors, front and rear cameras, blind spot assistant and wireless connection. charging.
