British tuner Overfinch has taken the wraps off the Land Rover Defender 40th Anniversary Edition. It serves as a last hurrah for the iconic off-roader which will be discontinued next month. Only five of these will ever be made and all of them are going to be based on the two-door Defender 90 fitted with the reputable 2.2-liter turbodiesel engines. The vehicle has gained diamond-turned Apollo 18-inch wheels, integrated LED daytime running lights, special front grille, electrically-operated tow bar and machined aluminum billet door handles and fuel filler cap. You’ll also notice the body-colored door sill protectors and step plates, along with black chrome Overfinch lettering on the hood.
As far as the interior cabin is concerned, the Land Rover Defender 40th Anniversary Edition by Overfinch has a Bridge of Wier leather upholstery applied on the Recaro seats, dashboard and headliner. The tuner has also fitted the off-roader with an Alpine satellite navigation system, rearview camera, deep pile carpets, subwoofer housed in a storage box, along with special matting in the load bay.
Overfinch is asking £70,000 for each of the five units available and all of them will feature an individually numbered plaque.
Those who would rather wait for an all-new Defender should know that it won’t be out until 2018.
The tuners at Overfinch have released an upgrade program for the Range Rover Sport. Dubbed GTS X, this tuning kit brings a few aesthetic changes in and out, along with a healthy power boost under the hood. It has the same V8 5.0-liter supercharged engine but now it pumps out 575 hp (429 kW / 583 PS) and 516 lb-ft (699 Nm) thanks to a reprogrammed ECU and installing a brand new custom exhaust system.
After these upgrades, the Range Rover needs only 5 seconds to perform the 0-62 mph, and it will keep on going until it reaches 145 mph (233 km/h).
Other than that, it has Brembo brakes with vented and drilled 380mm disk brakes, along with an electronic lowering module. As far as the bodykit is concerned, we notice that there’s a different front bumper that has LED daytime running lights, new side skirts, wider wheel arches, a rear roof spoiler and a restyled rear apron.
Overfinch has also changed the standard wheels in favor of larger 22-inch rims, while the stock paint has been ditched for this bright orange exterior paint. Moving inside the cabin of this custom Range Rover Sport, there’s a carbon leather upholstery with orange stitching, carbon tread plates and a 15-piece matt carbon veneer pack. The customization doesn’t stop here as the tuner has replaced the factory steering wheel with a sports one that has carbon inserts. The instrument panel is also new for this Range Rover Sport GTS X.
To get all these goodies for your British SUV, prepare to pay Overfinch no less than 147,500 pounds (including the car).
