Overfinch Defender 90 is revived with new £239,990 soft top model featuring a 6.2-litre V8

Overfinch has transformed a Defender 90 into a bespoke, one-of-one soft top 4×4, specially commissioned with a host of expensive upgrades.

Well known for its work modifying Land Rovers and Range Rovers, this latest effort from the London-based firm will be more likely to reside on the streets of London than in a muddy field.

That’s not to say that this soft top Defender isn’t impressive or capable. A 450bhp 6.2-litre V8 sits under the bonnet and to keep the extra power in check the brakes have been uprated, too. A stainless-steel sports exhaust system also features, which should do much to amplify that General Motors-sourced engine.

The green paint is matched with a green and tan leather interior and the Recaro sport seats should be able to keep occupants stable through quickly taken corners or unlikely off-road forays. In typical Overfinch style, there’s plenty of chrome dotted around the interior.

Exterior touches like the 18-inch Overfinch-branded alloy wheels, contrasting bonnet and an SVX front grille should ensure this drop-top Defender won’t get mistaken for a normal version.

Instead of rear seats there’s teak decking and a lockable storage box featuring an Overfinch 'Special-Commission’ plaque. There’s even a roll-over cage, but owners won’t want to test that out as prices start from £239,990.

While this Defender 90 remains a one-off, Overfinch says it’s available in right and left-hand drive.

The fuss around family cars may have centred firmly on the all-new Volkswagen Golf of late, but that’s not say other manufacturers are resting on their laurels. Conscious of quite how capable Wolfsburg’s hottest hatchback may be, makers are rushing to make improvements to their fast-selling favourites. Honda is no exception – the brand quietly updated the Civic with a smattering of stylistic and ergonomic tweaks only last month. Not content, it has now added a racier Sport Line model to the range, designed to steal sales from popular rivals like the Ford Focus ST-Line and SEAT Leon FR. • Best hatchbacks to buy now Instead of acting as a standalone spec, Honda’s sporty styling tweaks are applied to the flagship Civic EX, and will later be added to the to cheaper SR cars, too.
