East Coast Defender Releases The Huntress

Commissioned by a renowned artist known for her fearless multi-sensory installations, The Huntress was designed from the top down to be a rolling tribute of that very mantra, a fearless vision for a stunning Defender. Destined to perform daily tasks on her Wyoming ranch with an interior concept of what she is calling a “collected” look, The Huntress was born. Powered by a menacing 6.2-liter, 430-hp Chevrolet LS3 V-8 engine capable of 0-60 in 6.5 seconds, this Defender has an interior unlike anything we’ve ever done at East Coast Defender. With front Corbeau seats finished in chocolate brown alligator hide and coordinated leather throughout, the ultimate goal was to create an interior with a beauty mark rather than a coordinated interior, ultimately looking better with age and building character during adventures and a lot of tough use.
