Build #166 – Santorini Black Defender 90 Pickup
Starting life as an old farm vehicle the pictures detail some of the work that was undertaken to strip down and rebuild to this beautiful example of British engineering. After this has been completed to the highest standard adding in things such as a 4 speed automatic gearbox and factory fitted Air-Conditioning, upgraded handling, soundproofing and Audio. This vehicle is perfect for export to USA and Canada. the specification is changeable for any prospective owner, just get in touch to enquire.
BESPOKE Build No 168 was left in the customers garden unloved and unused for 2 years. The customer decided to pay the BESPOKE showroom a visit whilst in the area. After an afternoon browsing the BESPOKE options they went away and came back with a full wish list to include an individual Matte finish paint. We then collected their Defender from the static garden position and brought it back to our workshop for the work to begin.
The Defender was subjected to a complete strip down and body preparation for the full body respray to start, before rebuilding the vehicle to the customers chosen specification. The interior complemented the paintwork excellently with Black Nappa Leather and the perfect contrasting grey double diamond stitching, matching grey seatbelts and a matching 2nd row Sports Seat and cubby box conversion. Once completed the car was serviced, flew through the MOT and was returned to the overjoyed client. Whatever your vision we can make it happen.

We were tasked with transforming the original Defender 90, which has spent it’s lifetime as an estate vehicle, into a full BESPOKE build that is specifically tailored to the customer. The following pictures display some of the cars journey on which it travelled, undergoing thorough restoration with the addition of numerous modern updates to bring the car to its contemporary state.
When you climb into your Defender and look up to see it twinkling in a magical way you will realise the Starlight Headliner is the ultimate interior enhancement.
Every constellation is unique just like your BESPOKE build.
Created from hundreds of fibre optic strands at staggered depths and different guages it creates an opulent star filled ‘sky’. Each ‘star’ changing in warmth and brightness to give relaxing and subtle feel.
Our Master Craftsmen hand make every hole, fitting the fibre optic lights with precision to ensure that they’re set perfectly.
Available for either Defender 90 or 110
The sun was shining up in Yorkshire over the weekend and the Tour de Yorkshire was supported by thousands of fans cheering on the teams.
We were proud to be following the race along with Slingsby and Carthy & Black with two of our Defender 110s which in our eyes were the perfect vehicles to be following along, a true representation of Yorkshire life trundling through the dales.
Congratulations to all the riders for an amazing 4 days of racing and the top three the winners, including Britains own Dani King!
