This Land Rover Defender attracts a special kind of car fan

Idyllic island life

Regardless of your particular automotive penchant, the idea of a freshly restored Defender, a stunning island backdrop and your favourite companions is hard to beat. Once again, Cool & Vintage has purpose built a Defender for such adventures with their trademark take on the quintessential adventure wagon. Starting with a 1994 Land Rover D90, the restoration saw the boxy lines of the Defender brought to life with AA Yellow paint, complimented with a handmade black mohair hood and matched with perfectly purposeful wheels and chunky rubber. As we’ve come to expect, the interior features custom made water and UV resistant trim, which is just as well given the shorelines visited and downpours experienced on the 450 mile Madiera Island road-trip documented in this short video. Now for sale in the Classic Driver Market, this Defender is ready for a new owner, new experiences and maybe even new friends…
