STARTECH developed a design kit whose styling is reminiscent of the legendary Land Rover Series 3. The retro appearance includes 18-inch alloy wheels that evoke memories of the classic steel wheels of the original model, stainless-steel running boards and redesigned power mirrors. The STARTECH concept car also boasts an exclusive interior of perfectly crafted black leather with white decorative seams and an Alcantara headliner. But that’s not all: In cooperation with Sony Mobile, STARTECH developed a custom-tailored multimedia system for the Land Rover Defender with mirror link for Smartphones and two Sony tablet computers.
To achieve their objective the STARTECH designer modeled a new front component that transfers the design idiom of the classic role model and the unmistakable shape of its radiator grille to modern times, complete with state-of-the-art light technology. The STARTECH front component is fitted with two round 7-inch LED headlights that safely light the way even on nighttime excursions far from civilization. The smaller upper lights on either side function as daytime running lights; the turn signals just below them feature LED technology.
STARTECH also equips the Defender with larger power mirrors and stainless-steel running boards with integrated LED entrance lights, activated with the remote or by pulling on a door handle.
The STARTECH alloy wheels epitomize old-school design at its finest. They are modeled after the classic heavy-duty steel wheels of the vintage Land Rovers, but offer all the advantages of modern wheel technology. The size 8.5Jx18 wheels on the concept car are mounted with off-road tires in size 285/60 R 18.
