Over the years, evolution has allowed ECD to build and deliver some of the most luxurious and modern custom Defenders in the world. Below are our top 5 most innovative custom Defenders that our team has built over the years. Each of these classic Defenders features an upgrade or option that served as a milestone of advancement for ECD.
Project Barge is the first vehicle from E.C.D. to feature wood in the rear bed. The rear bed of this custom Defender 130 features beautiful Brazilian teak wood, providing a unique contrast to the pearl white exterior. This custom Defender 130 exemplifies the extent of how detailed vehicles can be designed through the Luxury Design Experience, a fully immersive design experience unlike any other, giving clients full control over the details and design of the vehicles. See full vehicle showcase for Project Barge here.
Project Katama is ECD’s first-ever custom Defender with an air suspension, offering ultra-smooth driving comfort. The difference in ride quality between the adjustable air suspension and the standard suspension is unmistakable, making this custom D110 the perfect vehicle for road trips. The beautiful two-tone custom D110, Project Katama, was designed with superior comfort in mind. See full vehicle showcase for Project Katama here.
Project Savage is ECD’s milestone 150th truck — a beautiful custom Defender 110 from the Ultimate Vehicle Concept division of ECD, a true no-limits build. Project Savage is ECD’s most powerful vehicle ever built. The heavily upgraded 6.2L LS3 V8 engine is performance-tuned to produce 600-horsepower and runs a 0-60mph time of 5.50 seconds. Performance upgrades include upgraded headers, pistons, radiator, cooling fans, and more. See full vehicle showcase for Project Savage here.
Project JT is ECD’s first custom Defender with a Cummins Diesel. E.C.D. It’s a 2.8L Cummins turbo-diesel engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission on this custom Defender 110. The Cummins 2.8L produces almost twice the horsepower and 4 times more torque than the original classic Defender diesel engine. Learn more about our custom Defender Cummins Diesel upgrade here.
Project Aloha is a classic Defender 90 in a bright Arctic White gloss paint. This 6.2L LS3-powered Defender 90 pushes 430-horsepower. While it features plenty of modern options and upgrades, Project Aloha is one of the lighter custom Defenders built by ECD. Its powerful LS3 and weight give it the crown for the fastest Defender built by ECD with a 0-60mph time of just 5.25 seconds. See full vehicle showcase for Project Aloha here.
