Classic Land Rover Defenders are one of the most sought-after off-road vehicles one can buy, thanks to their timeless good looks and legendary toughness. But like all classic vehicles, keeping them on the road can be a bit of a challenge. So if you’re someone who loves the look of a classic Defender (if you’re reading this, you probably are) but would like something a bit more modern and dependable, then allow us to turn your attention to the FUNCTION from Black Bridge Motors.
The FUNCTION is a customizable SUV that, while not actually related to Land Rover, gives off a very similar vibe to a classic Land Rover Defender. The FUNCTION is built on an off-road chassis that’s mated to a custom-made ⅜-inch thick aluminum body, and it’s engineered to perform both on and off-road. The truck is almost entirely customizable, with a laundry list of available options for buyers to choose from. The standard 4-wheel disc brakes with hydroboost can be upgraded to a racing brake system from Brembo, there are three available performance suspension systems, and the exterior options include switching up the paint, grille, and lighting, and piling on add-ons like a roll cage and spare tire carrier. The interior is customizable too, with the choice of premium or sport leather seats in a variety of shades. And there are a pair of Corvette powertrains on offer, either one of which will blow your hair back. The standard option is a 6.2L LS3 V8 putting out 430 horsepower, but if that’s too tame then you can go for the 6.2L LT4 supercharged V8 that makes 450 horsepower. Both options can be upgraded to a six-speed manual transmission.
Pricing for the FUNCTION starts at $144,950 and can increase from there depending on the options chosen. You can customize and pre-order your build now from the company’s website.
