The famous German tuning studio startech has presented its version of the Land Rover Defender SUV. Among other things, the British car received a more sporty body kit, as well as massive wheels.

German tuner Brabus has made a name with numerous modernization projects for various Mercedes-Benz models. The rest of the car brands are tuned by a Brabus subsidiary called Startech. Their latest project is based on the new Land Rover Defender in a short wheelbase version. The car received a two-tone finish with a white lower body and contrasting black pillars and roof.

The most obvious change from the standard SUV is the fact that Startech has removed the spare wheel. The fully exposed tailgate is adorned with a massive British flag.

The car received a set of large 23-inch rims with a hub cap.

The black alloys, called “Monostar E”, are wrapped in Yokohama 305/35 R23 rubber on the front and rear axles. Some would argue that these massive rims are overkill for a British SUV, as they would have looked better on the Land Rover Defender 110 (long wheelbase – ed.) Or the upcoming larger three-row 130.

Startech also decided to slightly lower the ride height by 35 millimeters. However, with the help of air suspension, the ground clearance can be increased.

The interior of the British SUV can be decorated with aluminum pedals as well as bespoke floor mats. For an additional fee, owners can opt for blue, black, or red anodized bolt kits inside, and the silver aluminum panels on the door cards can be painted in any color. “A virtually limitless variety of colors, quilting patterns and upholstery designs” are available in leather and Alcantara.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Land Rover will build Defender and Discovery on different platforms. The British automaker plans to build a new generation of Land Rover Discovery SUV based on JLR’s electric modular architecture (EMA). According to the company’s management, this should increase the sales of this model.
