E.C.D. Automotive Design (E.C.D.), a restoration company specializing in revamping Classic Defenders, original Range Rover Classics and vintage E-Types, recently introduced its new special edition models, the company announced.
While an E.C.D. custom-designed build entails a full design phase where the client selects every aspect of the vehicle from the ground up, Special Editions will offer pre-selected specifications developed by E.C.D.’s designers. Clients will be able to choose the exterior paint color, leather color and headliner color from a menu of options. This less involved design process allows E.C.D. to complete builds six months faster and at the lower price point, the company said. Each lineup of Special Editions will be uniquely themed, E.C.D. said, and has a limited run of three vehicles per batch.
“With the Special Editions, E.C.D. does the thinking for you, expertly configuring these vehicles for peak performance and luxury design with you in mind. It’s ideal for those who desire a faster, more effortless process with the same excellent product as the end-result,” said Co-Founder of E.C.D. Automotive Design Scott Wallace.
The first of the Special Editions is the First Edition. Designed by E.C.D. for performance, this restored Defender 110 lineup is powered by an LS3+ engine with 565 horsepower and features custom E.C.D. air suspension, EBC fast brakes and 20-inch black alloy wheels with BFGoodrich tires. The original Defender’s accessories include a full roll cage with ladder, a front light bar and rear work light. The interior has a 2+2+4 seat layout with standard modernizations like E.C.D. custom rear AC and more. Finally, each First Edition will have a special badge to highlight its unique status.
