Startech Defender Concept Debuts at Essen

Tuning

Defender Concept inspired by the classic Land Rover Series III is currently being showcased at the Essen Motor Show.

Brabus spends so much time focusing on Mercedes it established Startech, a subsidiary that tunes cars created by Jaguar Land Rover. Its latest project is a concept based on the new Defender, now on display in Essen. Inspired by the classic Land Rover Series III, produced from 1971-84, the Defender Series 3.1 Concept gets styling cues from the Series III coupled with modern touches such as its classic grille with two 7-inch LED headlights, daytime running lights, and LED-incorporated turn signals.

The 4x4 concept also boasts big power mirrors and stainless-steel running boards with integrated LED entrance lights that light up via remote or by pulling the door handle, and a set of old-school 18-inch heavy-duty steel alloys. Inside, Startech lavished the cabin in soft black leather upholstery, Recaro seats, an infotainment system with a 6.1-inch screen and secondary pop-up screen atop the dashboard, and two Sony tablets mounted on the seat back shells for the rear passengers' entertainment. With enough interest, the German tuner is ready to produce a limited run of its Defender Series 3.1 Concept.
