Subject         2023 Land Rover Defender 110 Carpathian


In 2020, Land Rover resurrected the new Defender, codenamed L663, with improved daily usability while maintaining the capability for which it became known since the introduction of the Series I. The new Defender's interior is more comfort-oriented and higher-tech than any previous generation and offered with a myriad of factory and aftermarket accessories including storage boxes, roof ladders, and off-road tires. 

To start this build, our client purchased this Defender V8 Carpathian Edition, which is the top model offered in the Defender lineup and strictly engineered to perform. Under the hood is a 5.0 liter 518HP V8 gas engine that can tow up to 7,716 pounds thanks to its 461 pound-feet of torque, and sprints 0-60 in just around 5 seconds.

While this Defender certainly starts as a formidable vehicle, we knew the styling cues could be a bit more defined, along with added performance and much more more personality and presence could be brought out in the platform.  This is where we begin with our partners in Buckinghamshire, England. URBAN Automotive......

Urban Automotive, is the worlds premier aftermarket restyling company for the Land Rover, and Range Rover lines.  We sourced the complete Urban XRS Widetrack package which is an extensive design package that addresses the entire vehicle with custom new paint to match gloss black widetrack XRS fender extensions setting the foundation for the following modifications. An URBAN carbon fiber XRS Vented Hood, XRS Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler, Carbon Fiber grille insert, Carbon Fiber Sidegrilles, URBAN Wide mudflap package, and URBAN smooth spare tire carrier.  Custom URBAN badging and lettering is throughout, Functional lower canards, and URBAN's seamless LED cube foglight assemblies in the front bumper tie everything together.


Addressing performance with a complete Milltek SS Exhaust system with quad tips, and cerakoted black for long lasting good looks, and then a custom ECU tune using TDI tuning module also based out of England, bump horsepower near 600 and provide a soundtrack usually reserved for high performance musclecars!

As usual, our PPF expert installer Justin utilized both STEK Dynoshield and Dynomatt Paint Protection film to create the stunning two tone look, while also protecting the entire vehicle, including a custom fit application to all the added URBAN components.

And obviously no Label build is complete without an absolutely stunning set of new wheels and tires! This Defender is topped off with a set of URBAN X Vossen Forged 22” UVX satin black wheels, wrapped in 285/45/22 Michelin Pilot Sports to unify the new wide track exterior package with our new widened track width flawlessly.

While the new Defender line has become extremely popular, the rare Urban Automotive upfitted builds are extremely few and far between. This is the one that will stand out in the crowd long into the future.
