In the evolving landscape of automotive innovation, the Manz Motor Company continues to redefine the boundaries between luxury and utility. The latest testament to their ingenuity is the meticulously crafted 1983 Land Rover Defender 110 Double Cab 6×6 Edition, an emblem of engineering prowess and aesthetic sophistication.

The heart of this restored masterpiece is its fully custom pneumatically actuated 6×6 differential, complete with an onboard air compressor, ensuring unparalleled control and traction on even the most treacherous terrains. This feature sets it apart from conventional off-road vehicles, providing a blend of performance and practicality that is rare in the automotive world.

Underneath its sophisticated exterior, painted in the luxurious Aston Martin Xenon Grey, lies the powerhouse that drives this beast: a 6.2-liter V8 LS3 engine from GM, renowned for its robust performance and reliability. This 480 horsepower engine has been meticulously paired with a GM 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission, guaranteeing a seamless and exhilarating driving experience. The meticulous restoration extends to the transfer case and differentials, which have been rebuilt and upgraded to endure the vehicle’s lifetime, emphasizing Manz’s commitment to quality and durability.

The Defender’s prowess is not limited to its engine and differential. An aftermarket suspension, including Fox 2.0 reservoir shocks, a 2-inch lift, softer springs, and polyurethane bushings, ensures a driving experience that is both superior and comfortable, regardless of the terrain it conquers.

Internally, this custom Land Rover Defender transcends traditional off-road vehicle interiors. It combines luxury and comfort with its black and tan leather and Alcantara upholstery, accentuated by handwoven leather accents and black anodized billet aluminum trim pieces. The interior is designed to provide both aesthetic appeal and comfort, featuring heated front and rear sport seats, ensuring that every journey is as comfortable as it is exciting.

The vehicle is equipped with modern conveniences and safety features, including an Alpine double din JL audio system with CarPlay and a backup camera, full LED lighting with integrated roof lights, and a Puma style dashboard with upgraded air conditioning and heat, blending classic design with contemporary technology. The enhanced driving experience is further supported by the robust Wilwood 6 piston front and Wilwood 4 piston rear brakes, upgraded limited slip differentials, axle shafts, and transfer case, ensuring safety and performance.

Externally, the Defender stands out with its 16-inch Spectre Edition wheels wrapped in 35-inch tires, a carbon fiber bonnet, heated front and rear windscreens, a Warn winch, Land Rover nudge bar, roll bar, NAS rear bumper, and tire carrier, marking it as a vehicle designed for adventurers who refuse to compromise on style and functionality.

This road-legal titan, currently titled in New Hampshire and listed with three axles, embodies the spirit of adventure and the pinnacle of automotive craftsmanship. With a price tag of $400,000, this custom Land Rover Defender 110 6×6 edition offers an exclusive gateway to uncharted territories of luxury and performance. It stands as a testament to the Manz Motor Company’s commitment to excellence, a bespoke chariot for the discerning enthusiast ready to embrace the untamed realms of automotive excellence.

If you want to see the vehicle up close, it will be in the Rally4Kids on April 13th in Santa Barbara. The United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara County presents Rally4Kids.
