A world leader in custom Land Rovers, E.C.D. Automotive Design has remained at the forefront as a result of evolution and continuous innovation since being founded in 2013. Currently making its way through production, is E.C.D’s first R2.8L Cummins diesel Defender 110.
The classic Defender 110 was originally offered with an optional 2.25L diesel engine that produced 68-bhp. Throughout the following years, the Defender diesel engine saw many upgrades, though always remained extremely underpowered.
The custom D110 from ECD, called Project Diesel, features a 2.8L Cummins turbo-diesel engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Cummins 2.8L turbo diesel produces almost twice the horsepower and 4 times more torque than the original classic Defender diesel engine.
With the help of Axis Industries, the R2.8L turbo-diesel engine for the restored Defender 110 was able to be installed ‘behind the steering box and in front of the rear cross member with no custom oil coolers or cutting of the cross member,” says Axis Industries.
The R2.8L Cummins diesel is proven to be efficient and reliable, bringing a new power option to the classic Defenders from E.C.D. Automotive Design. Project Diesel will be released in mid-November along with full specs.
