Portugal-based CoolNVintage has proven time and time again they’ve got an eye for renovating, updating, and restoring vintage Land Rovers to a beautiful road-ready condition. This time, however, they may have outdone themselves with a special Defender 110 project they’re calling the Build N77 Art Defender.
In collaboration with Lisbon-based artist Vasco Costa, this magnificent 4×4 took three months and a whopping 2,000 man hours to create. That includes its custom hand-painted frame, done up in bright and beautiful colors and graphics reminiscent of the works of Alexander Calder and Keith Haring — beautifully set against the gray body atop it. But she’s not just gorgeous, as that’s not the customizer’s style. She’s also a fully-functional off-roader powered by a V8 engine and complete with a FOX suspension, BF Goodrich tires, air conditioning, and a marvelous Marshall speaker integrated into the center console. CoolNVintage have truly outdone themselves this time.
