Overfinch Wants $420,000 For A 30-Year-Old Defender Soft-Top

Off-Road / 1 Comment

This 1992 classic has been remixed and remastered for the 21st century.

If you consider the new Land Rover Defender to be a bit soft, Overfinch's latest creation will be right up your dirt road. Based upon a 1992 Classic 110 V8 Soft Top, this restomod beauty offers the best of both worlds - the ruggedness of the original mixed with all the amenities of modern-day motoring. Oh, and a glorious GM LT1 6.2-liter V8 under the hood.

With 471 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque on tap, this remastered Classic is considerably more powerful than the original. All that motivation is, of course, sent to all four wheels via a modern GM-sourced eight-speed automatic, which should make daily driving a cinch. To make the Overfinch Defender sing, the company has fitted a dual valve performance exhaust system, fashioned out of stainless steel.

Already a capable off-roader, the 110 further benefits from an upgraded transfer box, revised front and rear differentials, uprated springs, dampers, and anti-roll bars, along with Overfinch performance brakes (six pistons up front, four at the rear).

But Overfinch isn't just about improving driving performance. The company knows a thing or two about luxury, as evidenced by the Classic 110's interior. Gone are the hard-wearing front pews, replaced with Recaro sportster front seats trimmed in Ebony luxury leather. This plush hide extends to the rest of the cabin and is finished in a classy Diamond Quilt pattern.

Naturally, the steering wheel, carpet mats, and every possible interior surface have been trimmed with the same materials. This particular model boasts the revised Puma dashboard, first seen in the mid-2000s, with piano black inlays. Look closely and you'll note the premium knurled touch pack, which gives the gear lever, low range selector, pedals, and handbrake lever a classy metal feel.

The Defender was never intended to be a luxury vehicle, so filling the innards with toys and leather won't change this. But that hasn't stopped Overfinch from trying. There's more interior soundproofing (for a more refined ride) and the ultimate gentleman's option, a champagne drawer with a cigar humidor - the former to be used when you're not driving, of course.

You even get Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability, Bluetooth, an aftermarket touchscreen, front electric windows, a reverse camera, and, importantly, ABS-equipped brakes. Should you not want to use the standard air-conditioning, you could just remove the mohair tonneau cover and enjoy some fresh air.

Overfinch respects Land Rover's heritage and, as such, hasn't tampered with the iconic styling. You'll find LED head- and taillights, a new front bumper with daytime running lights, an Overfinch external roll cage, 18-inch Apollo wheels painted in gloss black, and an SVX front grille and light guards. Save for these cosmetic enhancements, the styling remains the same.

Overfinch has also fitted the 110 with chunky 265/65 BF Goodrich all-terrain rubber, a 10,000-pound electric winch with a steel rope, an Elite light bar, and a steering rack guard. It may not be as quick as a modern-day Defender V8, but it's a whole lot cooler than the new boy.

However, there's a price to pay for all of this. This incredible creation costs a whopping $419,990 - two-and-a-half times more expensive than Overfinch's own take on the new Defender.
