In pictures: Overfinch create £240k unique soft top Defender

By LLM Reporters on 9th December 2019

Overfinch, a creator of bespoke Land Rover models, has released details of a one-of-one soft top Defender, specially commissioned by a client to add to their prized collection.

The iconic 4×4 vehicle, finished in Overfinch Emerald Green, showcases the company’s ability to once again, take the Land Rover into a league of its own.

Since 1975, Overfinch has been enhancing the performance and aesthetics of the Land Rover marque; Overfinch famously won the 1981 Paris-Dakar Rally with an upgraded Range Rover using a re-designed gearbox system.

Now, in 2019, Overfinch reaffirm their renowned craftsmanship skills and expertise in modification of the Land Rover marque to deliver and design rare vehicles for customers across the world.

The Overfinch 6.2L Soft Top Defender is a transformation from a Defender 90 which has been stripped down from a 4-seat configuration and rebuilt to a 2-seater. The deep Emerald Green exterior is colour-coordinated with a removable soft top cover that clips onto the specially constructed roll-over protection cage.

Completing the statement exterior, Overfinch has converted the rear load space using marine-grade teak and built a lockable storage box finished with the addition of an Overfinch ‘Special-Commission’ plaque.

Most notable, but concealed beneath the bonnet, lies the new, zero-mileage 6.2L General Motors carbon fibre encased engine. Emitting a powerful performance of speeds limited to 110MPH, the remastered Defender makes for an impressive drive with uprated 6 piston front and 4 piston rear brakes, all controlled by the automatic transmission system and complemented by the Overfinch stainless-steel sport exhaust system.

This rare Overfinch commission is a statement vehicle. Recaro sports seats trimmed in Emerald and Tan leather have been fitted which feature contrast stitching, with a dashboard and steering wheel fully upholstered to match; a complete makeover from its original utilitarian styling. Overfinch go the extra mile with fine knurling on tactile chrome components, such as door handles, gear selector, handbrake, pedals and instrument dials.

Recognisably an Overfinch commission, the handcrafted lettering adorns the bonnet and other branded intricacies featured on the door handles, fuel cap, wheel caps, side sills and headrests elevate this Defender an entire new level. The 18” Apollo alloy wheels, designed by Overfinch, are colour coded in bespoke Emerald Green to finish off the look.

Kevin Sloane, CEO and chairman of Overfinch, said: “This Defender demonstrates our DNA of Land Rover restoration and contemporary styling. We have remastered the Defender to make our customer’s dream a reality.

“Each unique detail in this conversion guarantees to stand it as the most unique Defender in the world. Exclusivity is a request which many of our clients seek, and we have every ability to deliver it. At Overfinch, our specialist conversion team source pristine Land Rover vehicles and restore them impeccably into elegant collector’s items.”
