Land Rover Defender Project XIII by East Coast Defender

We don’t think we’d be out of line in suggesting that Florida-based East Coast Defender builds some of the best Land Rover Defenders on the planet. Just take at look at their latest release, dubbed Project XIII, a bespoke version of the Defender 110 that now hosts a corvette engine under the hood.

It was all built per the request of a young entrepreneur, proving once again that hard work and due diligence do indeed pay off in the long run. Clearly, the buyer wanted a Land Rover with a bit of a kick so ECD got their hands on a GM LS3 crate engine. Now, the 6.2-liter V-8 provides the Defender with upwards of 430 horsepower, hitting 0-60 in only seven seconds. It’s all made possible thanks to a Spectre cold-air intake and a custom Magnaflow dual tip cat-back system ECD installed to improve the LS3’s airflow.

The Defender also hosts a premium Tarox Sport Braking system, a Slimline roof rack, eco-cage, Massi rear ladder, Wild Bear bumpers, a Warn winch in front, and LED lighting all around for a murdered-out overland aesthetic. They also hooked the ride up with Boost wheels wrapped within a set of 32.5-inch BFGoodrich Radial All-Terrain KO2 tires and a 2-inch Terra Firma suspension lift. The interior also features custom-stitch upholstery and an updated infotainment system with an 8-speaker JBL system. Some great taste if you ask us.
