Conquer Any Terrain In Style Aboard This Corvette-Powered 525HP Defender

US-based Himalaya is a bespoke vehicle operation specializing in converting vintage Land Rovers into restomods with modern-day performance and amenities. And the shop’s latest Defender-based project — a custom 110 Crew Cub — takes Himalaya’s build ethos and runs with it, resulting in what very well may be the South Carolina outfit’s finest work to date.

The donor’s original bodywork has been jettisoned in favor of a pristine set of Puma parts, including the hood and wide fender flares. Other off-road upgrades include a tow winch, skid-plate, LED off-road lights, 18-inch wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich all-terrain rubber, and billet door handles and hinges. A pristine chassis has been paired with Salsbury axles, a Wing Tops exo-roll cage, and FOX Shocks. The 110 also received a modern disc brake conversion with Wilwood four-piston calipers and stainless steel-braided lines. At the heart of the rugged restomod is a brand-new LS3 6.2L V8 Corvette performance engine that puts down a cool 525hp and 495ft-lbs of torque. Inside, a sound-proofed and Dynamat-coated interior, the Defender now sports a modern Puma dash decorated with carbon fiber accents, diamond-stitched black leather heated Exmoore seats and matching door panels, a MOMO steering wheel, Dakota Digital instrumentation, a high-end audio system with an Alpine touchscreen, JL Audio speakers, and a back-up camera. Sold with a nifty billet key, Himalaya’s Land Rover Defender LS3 110 Crew Cab is currently for sale for $250,000.
