The iconic modified SUV is limited to just 10 examples.
MANSORY has truly outdone itself with the recent unveiling of the Defender Black Edition based on the Land Rover Defender V8. This limited edition, capped at just 10 masterpieces, is a testament to the blend of rich automobile history with cutting-edge luxury.
The Land Rover Defender needs no introduction. With its roots dating back to 1948, the vehicle has solidified its mark in the automobile annals. Globally recognized as a staple of the English automobile industry, the Defender has proudly worn its badge of durability and versatility for nearly 75 years. Its predecessor, having sold over 2 million units, showcases the Defender’s vast legacy. In 2020, the Defender’s successor, codenamed L663, confidently embraced modernity, incorporating the latest tech, an 8-speed automatic transmission, and permanent all-wheel drive, all while preserving its raw off-road capabilities.
The Bavarian experts at MANSORY had their sights set on this legend. Using the Defender V8 as their canvas, they began the transformation, introducing a myriad of refinements that have come to define the MANSORY name globally.
This conversion birthed the MANSORY Defender Black Edition, an undeniable head-turner both visually and technically. Painted exclusively in black, all its body parts, ranging from the front apron to the widened front fenders and the roof spoiler, are crafted from full carbon. This not only bestows the vehicle with a magnificent appearance but also showcases the hallmark of MANSORY’s complete conversions. The front, adorned with an ultra-light full-carbon hood, boasts a new radiator grille and front apron in visible carbon. LED highlights further embellish this beauty, cementing its unparalleled stature.
MANSORY didn’t stop at the exterior. The Defender Black Edition sits on “FD.15” rims, 10 x 24 in size, paired with 295/30 R24 high-performance tires. This potent combination promises precision, performance, and a harmonious design in one package. The vehicle’s performance also witnessed an impressive upgrade, with the engine output now at a robust 650 hp and torque of 642 lb/ft of torque. This results in a 0 to 60 acceleration in just 4.7 seconds and a top speed limited to 155 mph.
Diving into the interior, it’s a canvas of luxury and customization. From choices in leather and colors to carbon design and quilting, MANSORY ensures that each Defender Black Edition resonates with its owner’s individuality. In the displayed model, a dark gray Alcantara interior stands out, with applications in “Mandarin Orange” and parts finished in exposed carbon fiber. The carbon and leather sport steering wheel, MANSORY sport aluminum pedals, and other meticulously crafted details make it a sanctuary of luxury on wheels. An additional touch of opulence comes in the form of hundreds of LEDs in the headliner, mirroring the sky and the MANSORY logo, offering passengers an unmatched ambiance. With high performance, bespoke design, and sumptuous luxury, MANSORY transcends the Defender from being an iconic SUV into a unique automotive masterpiece, and its degree of exclusivity certainly helps. For those who want a luxury SUV that is bound to turn heads, this new creation from MANSORY might be it.
