In all of its iterations, the Land Rover Defender has always cut a formidable figure. But this Icon Defender NAS 110 might just be the prominent face on the vehicle’s Mount Rushmore.
Icon’s Jonathan Ward went wild with this 1993 model, putting a 6.2L LS3 GM Erod motor under the hood that generates 430 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque. There’s also a GM Supermatic transmission and handful of other mechanical upgrades to note including a custom suspension from Twisted and Bilstein, Twisted modified Axles, Alcon disc brakes, and more. The fully CAD-designed dash is made from laser-cut ribbed steel, and the rugged styling doesn’t stop there, with custom Icon CNC’d alloy control knobs and CNC’d vents. A splash of elegance comes courtesy doors and seating wrapped in American Bison hide and Dynamat sound deadener to help keep things hush hush.
