Land Rover Zulu2 ‘Super Defender’

Jul 20, 2018

Category: Rides

While Land Rover Defenders undoubtedly qualify as classic vehicles, we wouldn’t go so far as to call them ‘performance SUVs.’ The JE Motorworks Zulu2 ‘Super Defender,’ however, is another story entirely – this baby’s got both beauty and power in spades.

Completely hand-built in such comprehensive fashion that literally all rotating parts have been replaced, this gorgeous off-road ready vehicle benefits from a brand-spanking-new JE-tuned 4.7-liter supercharged V8 Jaguar/Land Rover engine capable of a whopping 475 horsepower and over 479 foot-pounds of torque. And while those numbers are certainly impressive, they’re hardly the only upgrade – as this classic-turned-colossus also has a completely redone premium leather interior, a Fox Racing suspension, brand-built custom anti-roll bars and 6-speed Tiptronic Automatic gearbox, re-engineered brakes, and unique badging. Best of all: starting at $163,000, it can be yours.

Purchase: $163,000+
