Land Rover Defender ‘Project Blackout’

Back with another tricked-out astounding project from the aftermarket workshop that keeps pushing the limits, East Coast Defender recently released their latest build – Project Blackout. It’s a beastly murdered-out Defender complete with a tuned up 5.3-liter Chevrolet LC9 V-8 engine under the hood.

And with such prominence under the hood, you’d think this would be enough. Well, to round things off nicely both in and out of the Defender, ECD hooked this thing up with a Borla exhaust, EBC performance brakes along with stainless steel brake lines, a Ron Davis aluminum radiator, a full roof rack complete with LED spot lamps and 18” Sawtooth wheels wrapped in a set of BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires. Inside, Project Blackout boasts a Kenwood Infotainment system, heated leather Land Rover seats and LED lighting throughout. Clearly an exercise in both off-road prowess and urban assault and we for one can’t wait to see what’s next on the docket for these guys.
