What happens when you take the body of a Land Rover and merge it with a Corvette LS3 performance engine? One sweet ride that’s for sure. And that’s specifically what the guys over at East Coast Defender, Owned and operated by three Brits right here in the U.S, built in their newest bespoke model called the Land Rover Defender Beast.

This latest build, which recently earned the People’s Choice Award from Florida’s Festivals of Speed, sees the iconic 4×4 equipped with Chevy’s LS3 Performance engine – tuned to perfection. We’re talking about a fully capable, off-road Land Rover that can top 60 MPH in just 7 seconds. It’s outfitted with Ashcroft drive shafts and axles to handle the power of the engine, complete with limited slip differentials. There’s also an upgraded Terrafirma suspension to ensure the Beast can reach its top speed and brake effectively. In the interior, the Beast hosts hand-stitched leather throughout, a premium eight-speaker JBL entertainment package, Corbeau racing seats, a PUMA dashboard, and MOMO sports steering wheel to boot. The Defender also has a push-button shifter that replaces the traditional lever shifter, offering split-second shifting capability with the push of a button. Another gem from the folks at ECD.
