With the recent launch of the Defender 130 with an extended chassis, Land Rover is now offering the main versions that were traditional on the original Def'. But there was one missing, which many customers were waiting impatiently: the convertible version. A year and a half ago, we presented the conversion project of a Dutch company, but which then only existed on sketch. Today, this company, Heritage Customs, presents the finished product.


And even if we suspect that it will not find any favor in the eyes of the "hard" fans of the Defender, we find that it is frankly successful. Heritage Customs starts by cutting a Defender 90 (supplied by the customer), before equipping it with an FIA homologated roll bar, which ensures rigidity and supports the soft top. It is semi-electric (it still has to be manually unlocked above the windshield), and is available in a multitude of shades. The company also offers to make everything else of the vehicle to measure, from the paint to the interior trim, including the rims. Minimum conversion price? 85.000€, in addition to the price of the vehicle, which itself costs 63.000€ base. Definitely, between this and the Defender Classic offered by Land Rover, the good old Def has really become a luxury product.
