Leave it to the Bulgarians. I cant find anything on their site about it, but I did find some on the link below.

It doesn't look THAT bad. I like the Recaro look without it needing to be all leather. I could do without the DVD player too I guess. Jeep flares though? Really? Was that necessary?

"Hardcore off-road credibility meets well-appointed luxury"

Sounds like a NJ real estate agent wrote the copy.
I think I need some well-appointed luxury, who appoints it?

Better get used to this crap because if they ever do bring it back to the us 5 out of 10 defenders will look like this. Damn shame.

I'll tell you what they look like....or on the other hand don't look like! If you ever looked at those Iceland and Antartic equipped vehicles that have the huge floatation tires, which is what's missing in those pics! Those are the extra wide steel wheels and flares they use in Iceland, why they put those.....clearly not wide enough and not offraod capable tires is my question, other wise they look pretty damn cool!

I found these... notice the wheels and flares, these only need a minimum suspension lift because the rest comes from the tires and wheelwell cut outs to accomidate the huge tires!

Personally i like it! My defender 90 being rather smart only ever did a few green lanes, snow duty and towing duty so why not have a few creature comforts. The Recaro CS seats are on my list for my 110 buid aong with some serious insuation and sound deadening!

PS the +2" wheel arches are made for landrovers and can be bought here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover...#ht_1402wt_905

Generally in Iceland they only have small lifts and huge tyres.

This is one of our Defenders from a trip 2 years ago. 2" lift , 35" tyres - adequate.
