Land Rover Project Viper by East Coast Defender

Jun 6, 2017

Category: Rides

As if East Coast Defender didn’t already build hefty enough aftermarket Land Rovers, they went ahead and started a new Ultimate Vehicle Concept division to build some of the most extreme off-road capable vehicles around. Shown here, Project Viper is the first of only ten custom SUVs the UVC division will build this year, and boy did they deliver right from the get-go.

Under the hood of this backcountry ride is a Chevrolet LS3 V-8 Corvette engine pushing out 430 horses, along with a handful of other upgrades and features that make this monster a cross-continent-capable beast. We’re talking a USA handmade aluminum radiator, stainless steel brake lines, Wilwood brakes, a custom suspension system with King Off-Road Racing shocks, and 2” lifted Old Man Emu coil springs. The interior got the ECD treatment as well, complete with a Puma dash upgrade, LED lighting throughout with mood and puddle lighting to boot, and a Kenwood touchscreen infotainment system with all the bells and whistles. Add a set of custom ECD edition 20” ADV.1 wheels wrapped in Nitto Mud Grappler tires and this thing sets the bar quite high for whatever the UVC division is slated to release next.
