LS3 Engine to be featured in ECD build

Land Rover Defender 90

Project Beast, a Matte Black D110 that will surely live up to its name, will be featuring a Chevy Small Block LS3 engine. The builder mentioned to our founder, Tom, that he wanted something fast and reliable – and it came as a recommendation from our team that his build holster an LS3 engine. The LS3, with its 6.2L, 430-HP, and extreme high performance, proves it’s more than capable of turning this Defender 110 into Project Beast.

“With an engine like this coming into one of our builds, I am most excited about seeing the build run, not just the engine itself. It’s the fuel economy and the horse power, that’s the experience I’m waiting for.” – Upgrades Bay Technician, Pete.

But more than just the engine makes Beast beastly. From its flat satin Corris Grey color to the push button gear shift, Beast is being built as one of our most technologically modern builds yet.

Land Rover Calls It the End, East Coast Calls It the Beginning

Land Rover Defender 90

This year has been monumental for the legacy of the Defender. From the end of its production in 2015 to its iconic role in the film Spectre, the Land Rover Defender has shared its heritage across the world and flourished in the market of rare off-road vehicles. In the United States, the Defender is still an uncommonly seen vehicle, limited by availability and the need for modern upgrades. Taking on the challenge, East Coast Defender has provided the service of bringing the iconic Defender to consumers in an entirely new way and the end of this year yields impressive results.

In 2015, East Coast Defender has sent 23 builds and several upgraded Defenders to new homes across the U.S., expanding the term “luxury vehicle” to “all-terrain multi-functional luxury vehicle”. East Coast Defender compels each client to use more than just their lifestyle to influence their build, suggesting a limitless imagination lead the scope of design.
“We are always searching our past work and process for ways to improve ourselves as we progress. We are always striving for perfection, so we’ve already started planning and looking at East Coast Defender well into the future.” – Head of Creative, Dia.
