The Land Rover Defender hasn’t seen many updates over the past 30 years, but one British firm is adding a touch of elegance to the iconic vehicle.
The Chelsea Wide Track version, made by the Chelsea Truck Company, will still go anywhere, but it comes with luxury touches like leather-trimmed sport seats and a billeted steering wheel with matching aluminum pedals. On the off-road side, the Chelsea version also includes an upgraded front bumper, headlights, grill, and tires.
Sadly, the UK-based Chelsea does not ship the vehicle to the U.S.*
