Tuning that deserved a new Defender

Tuning that deserved a new Defender


German workshop Startech unconventionally approached tuning Land Rover Defender 90. The three-door SUV was decorated with multi-spoke 23-inch wheels, the suspension was lowered, a British flag was painted instead of a spare wheel, and bright anodized bolts became the highlight of the interior. For a surcharge, the interior can be altered with leather and Alcantara of any color, individualized stitching and special embossing.

Outside, the Startech Land Rover Defender is most easily recognizable by its Monostar E anthracite wheels with caps imitating one central nut fastening, low-profile Yokohama 305/35 R23 tires and the absence of a rear tire – in its place is painted a black and white Union Jack .

The richly equipped version of the Defender 90 is taken as a basis, so the body kit is painted in the body color, but the stylists added discreet overlays for the bumpers and headlights. The Land Rover logo on the bonnet has been replaced with the Startech name. Technical improvements were limited to reconfiguring the air suspension: the clearance was programmatically reduced by 35 millimeters for the sake of control.

The “trick” of the cabin is the bright bolts on the door cards, the central tunnel and the front panel, as well as aluminum pedals. Instead of the standard gray or black mounts, you can order blue, gold or cherry. The interior in Startech can be changed beyond recognition, but the demonstration crossover retains a discreet style with dark trim and red stitching.

If desired, a similar set can be ordered for any new Land Rover Defender, for example, air suspension firmware will cost 990 euros, and a British flag print on the trunk lid – 360 euros.
