Custom vehicle shops draw inspiration from all over for their builds. But it isn’t often that we see something extraordinarily unique while still being done beautifully and understatedly enough to deserve jaw-drops. That is, however, exactly what we’ve found in Arkonik’s landmark 150th build – a bespoke 1991 Land Rover Defender 110 called Añejo.
Meaning ‘aged’ in Spanish, Añejo draws its design cues from Latin America – though it’s not entirely clear at first glance. Yes, the exterior is done up in a Sky Blue reminiscent of the expansive Central American heavens, but you have to check out the interior to really get the full effect. Inside the rig, you’ll find seating constructed from a combination of Earthy Brown leather and Mexican blanket material that matches the 15″ wooden rim steering wheel perfectly. And this Latin-inspired piece of functional art is powered by a 3.5 V8 engine that pushes a set of 16″ modular wheels wrapped with Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires. It’s even equipped with a Warn Zeon 12-S winch with plasma cord and winch bumper and LED spotlights above the cab. Unfortunately, this one is already spoken for – but you can always contact the brand to build one of your own.
