CoolNVintage N77 Land Rover Defender Suv
“Decorating a car’s chassis as the focus of automobile is like spending all your time on the frame of a piece of artwork while ignoring the canvas. Good thing the CoolNVintage’s Build 77 Art Defender can lean on the legendary look of the iconic Land Rover Defender 110 from 1983. This particular one’s artwork was done up by CoolNVintage’s own artist, Vasco Costa, who hails from Lisbon, Portugal. The Build 77 is meant to echo Lisbon’s own hidden beauty by offering glimpses of the hand-painted fame rather than the work in its entirety. The contrasting basic silver bodywork and black mohair soft top make for a visually Spartan backdrop that works wonderfully with Costa’s craft. Inside, you’ll find custom-stitched black Connolly leather seats, Marshall speakers, a bespoke tailgate bag, and a special plaque. The 77 is powered by a V8 engine and undergirded by FOX suspension and BF Goodrich off-road tires. And though it’s got the makings of a seriously rugged 4×4, the Build 77 is easily one of the most uniquely stunning Defender custom projects we’ve ever seen.”
Cool & Vintage 2013 Land Rover D90 Pickup
“We’ve seen quite a few impressive shop trucks over the years. After all, the trusty hauler any great shop uses for deliveries and parts runs says a lot about the shop itself. Which is why were in no way surprised to learn that Lisbon’s Cool & Vintage has been using a cherry 2013 Land Rover D90 diesel pickup as their shop truck for years. They’ve chosen to move on from this shop truck, presumably to a new and equally gorgeous option, which means now is the perfect opportunity for you to park your very own 2013 Land Rover D90 diesel pickup in your garage. A light and simple Keswick green paint job perfectly compliments the bespoke cognac Connolly leather interior that also includes a built-in Marshall wireless sound system in the console and a modern A/C system. This is one pickup truck that’s almost too pretty to use for its intended purpose.”
Cool & Vintage Defender D90 Keswick Green
“How do you make a Land Rover Defender better? Let the guys over at Cool & Vintage get their hands on it. We’ve shown you some of their work before, but their latest build is our favorite yet. As with all things Cool & Vintage, the first thing that pops out is the color choices, as here they paired a stunning Keswick Green with a creamy interior. The Keswick Green on the wheels is a nice touch, as well. Under the hood you’ll find a Puma engine and you’ll traverse the rocky terrain on a set of BF Goodrich Mud tires. You can check out more shots of this build on Cool & Vintage’s Instagram, which is clearly worth a follow, by the way. “
Land Rover Defender 90 Nardo Grey
"Looking at the Land Rover Defender 90 Nardo Grey—the latest project from the folks at Cool & Vintage out of Australia—you’d be hard-pressed to pinpoint the fact that this began life as a 2002 Defender. A soft-top with roll-up covers has been fitted to the roof. The nonsense plastic bits on the interior have been deleted in favor of a stripped down aesthetic that’s nowhere near as insulated as it once was but is a helluva lot cooler. It’s also got new upholstery and a striking grey paint job. The front grill has been replaced with a matte black number that’s far for menacing. It sits on a wheel and tire package that will tear up everything from sand to pavement. In other words, Cool & Vintage did what they always do; they took a car that was pretty damn respectable in the first place and turned it into vehicle that feels like a vintage SUV while still being completely new.
