Living a life of rustic simplicity is unfortunately hard to come by these day thanks to the contemporary need to remain connected at all times. A decent halfway point, however, is to own a vehicle that potentially speaks to this minimalist mindset. Cue the Cool & Vintage workshop, masterminds of their craft, who were able to build out the perfect beach running adventure-mobile by simply removing all unnecessary excess.
At its core, this handsome aquatic-influenced light blue beauty is indeed a coveted Land Rover Defender. However, the fine folk over at Cool & Vintage managed to strip the ride down to the bare chassis to help lighten the load and make things as straightforward as possible. Now, rugged interiors make a little bit of sand and water easy to deal with, while UV resistant seats in Dice and Onyx prevent any unwanted burns from the late afternoon sun. There’s also a black mohair soft top for some added protection, military style windows, and a set of heavy duty wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich Mud tires for smooth sailing in the rugged outdoors.
