Sometimes producers need a little help. Land Rover Defender Convertible has not officially entered the market, but it is available for purchase. Heritage Design took matters into their own hands and created an amazing version of this car.
We are sure that if such a version was sold in series, it would be very popular. New Land Rover Defender not available with soft rear opening. Fortunately, there is no shortage of enthusiasts willing to take bold steps to create such a car.
Heritage Customs decided to supplement his version with such an option. Contrary to appearances, the creation process required a lot of experience, but the final result is impressive.

In the cabin you can see the frame of the castle, decorated with leather and well-furnished. Such a car will pass all technical tests without any problems and will be accepted for traffic. This is a big plus.
The cut-out rear of the body has been replaced by a soft top that folds behind the bench seat. It extends completely over the front seats, creating a pleasant open space for four people.
By the way, the car has become more luxurious
Heritage Customs also undertook the complete reconstruction of the interior. All elements are covered with leather and wood in a light shade, creating a very attractive environment in the cabin.
The body, on the other hand, stands out because of the 22-inch rims and several color additions. Heritage Customs has also prepared three color packs for this vehicle, to make purchasing easier for customers.
