The Land Rover Defender (initially called the Land Rover Ninety and Land Rover One Ten) is a British four-wheel-drive off-road utility vehicle developed from the original Land Rover Series launched in 1948. Used by farmers and enthusiasts for years, sadly in October 2013 Land Rover announced that production would end in December 2015, after a continuous run of 67 years.

With the standard defender sporting a 120 hp turbo diesel,¬† Urban Truck, based in the UK, decided that it really wasn’t enough and dropped¬† a GM-sourced 6.2 liter V8, with between 430 HP to 500 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque. The power goes to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission with an electronic gear selector.

The interior comes bathed in fine nappa leather, including Recaro seats. Options include upgraded sound systems, navigation, park assist, rear camera, in fact pretty much anything you want.

Pricing for the Ultimate RS version is a cool $145K.
