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.

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.

Auto Express 2020-02-08 10:00 The Range Rover Sport has got a new engine in HSE trim, is it a match for the Porsche Cayenne Coupe? The new Porsche Cayenne Coupé has been designed to capitalise on growing interest from buyers of high-end, sporty SUVs who really want exclusive style from their new car. It’s very closely related to the standard Cayenne, but a sloping roofline at the rear end gives it a sportier look, while the model retains the high-up driving position that fans of SUVs love. Another model that really influenced the SUV style stakes was the Range Rover Sport. • Fastest SUVs in the world Of course we’ve tested this model before, but serial updates have kept it fresh, and it’s now available with a new engine that brings it close to the Cayenne for specification. The P400 we’re testing has a 3.0-litre straight-six petrol motor under the bonnet, which means it’s a rival for the entry-level version of the Cayenne Coupé, which has a 3.0-litre V6.
