Despite the evolution of the Land Rover brand, The Land Rover Defender continues to be a stalwart, Spartan workhorse. That is, unless you send it to European tuning house Vilner, as evidenced by these two customized examples.
Dubbed the Defender Experiance (yes, that’s the way it’s spelled), Vilner’s customizations focus mainly on the SUVs’ interiors. Passengers will find themselves surrounded by a black and mocha color palette. The Recaro-style front seats are wrapped in dual-tone leather with simple stitching; the same goes for the door panels and center console panel. The headliner, B-pillars, front seatbacks, and subwoofer box (mounted in the cargo area) are wrapped in mocha suede. Vilner also color-matched the instrument panel gauges and shift boots.
The exterior touches are much more subtle and include diamond-patterned trim plates for the front fenders, gray rims, and a Vilner-branded spare tire cover. There are no details how much the Vilner treatment costs, but it’s a safe bet you’ll need a lot of coin to make your Defender get down, dirty, and dapper.
