Life looks better from the cockpit of a Land Rover convertible
”When we asked Cool & Vintage co-founder Ricardo Pessoa how his company picks the models they choose to work with, his response was clear and concise:
“We just imagine what we want next and we build it.”
In the case of this new Land Rover Defender build — codename “Brown” — it seems they wanted versatility. Using a 2011 model as a base, Cool & Vintage’s team of restoration experts set about building a maroon-and-tan Defender that’d run great on the beach, in the desert or on safari.”

“Memorial Day has been in the rearview mirror for almost a month now, but our pals over at Cool and Vintage are just busting out their summer whites: this 1996 Land Rover Defender D90 that got some TLC and a new paintjob befitting the summery beachmobile it was destined to become.
It’s no lie that the first thought that came into our minds upon seeing these photos was “Easy” by The Commodores.

They're called Cool & Vintage, and when we chatted with them a few months ago, they confirmed that they do, in fact, have the best job on earth, as described above. For their latest project, they took a '94 Land Rover D90 in iconic yellow, gave it a fresh, battle-ready trim, seats, tires, cage and mohair hood, hooked up with two lovely ladies from Voke swimwear, and then headed to the isle of Madeira for an impromptu photo/videoshoot.
