Undoubtedly, virtually any iteration of the Land Rover Defender is a solid off-roading machine. But, for longer trips, they can be a bit cramped and uncomfortable. Luckily, the folks at Matzker have come along and remedied that with their overlanding-ready Land Rover Defender 110 ‘MDX Expeditionsmobil.’
Built around a 2.2 td4 engine — which is capable, if a bit lacking in the power department — this 4×4 rig has everything you need to get off the grid for long periods of time. Of course, that starts with the pop-top camper on the back, which boasts plenty of storage, a two-burner stove, separate sleeping and sitting areas, and a whole lot more. Of course, the exterior has gotten some appearance and performance upgrades as well, like a roof rack over the cab (which houses a spare all-terrain tire, as well as a storage box), a front-end winch to help get you out of sticky situations, a snorkel intake, overhead spotlights mounted to a roll cage, etc. It’s likely that this is a one-off project, but we’re willing to bet — for the right price — they’ll happily build another.
