E.C.D. Automotive Design (E.C.D.), the world’s largest restoration company specializing in revamping Classic Defenders, original Range Rover Classics, and vintage E-Types into bespoke luxury builds, today introduces an exciting new offering: Special Editions. Whereas an E.C.D. custom-designed build entails a full design phase where the client selects every aspect of the vehicle from the ground up, Special Editions offer high-quality, pre-selected specifications developed by E.C.D.’s expert craftsmen that are perfect for daily use. Clients are free to choose the exterior paint color, leather color, and headliner color from a menu of options. This less involved design process allows E.C.D. to craft luxurious, all-inclusive builds a whole six months faster and at the lower price point of $249,995. Each lineup of Special Editions is uniquely themed and has a strictly limited run of three vehicles per batch.
“With the Special Editions, E.C.D. does the thinking for you, expertly configuring these vehicles for peak performance and luxury design with you in mind. It’s ideal for those who desire a faster, more effortless process with the same excellent product as the end result,” said the Co-Founder of E.C.D. Automotive Design Scott Wallace.
The first of the Special Editions is appropriately dubbed First Edition. Designed by E.C.D. for performance, this restored Defender 110 lineup is powered by an LS3+ engine with 565 horsepower and features custom E.C.D. air suspension, EBC fast brakes, and 20-inch black alloy wheels with BFGoodrich tires. The original Defender’s accessories include a full roll cage with ladder, a front light bar, and rear work light. The interior has a 2+2+4 seat layout with standard modernizations like E.C.D. custom rear AC and more. Finally, each First Edition will have a special badge to highlight its unique status. Inventory for these custom Defenders is extremely limited with two of three First Editions already sold. Images and a brochure with more details are here.
Those excited to place an order for these popular Special Editions can also look forward to the next batch, currently in development by E.C.D.’s talented team. E.C.D. plans to offer four unique batches of Special Editions a year.
