The tuning studio Manhart, known for its projects based mainly on German models, announced a project to refine the new generation of Land Rover Defender. The new version of the car tuning will allow you to turn the version with the V6 engine into a competitor for the factory version with the V8 engine, and at the same time — give the car an exclusive appearance and refine the interior. Moreover, you can choose both the version for trips on asphalt roads and for off-road trips.

The DP 500 project, as the SUV will be called after the intervention of Manhart, implies a new grille and bumpers, expanded wheel arches, and Forged Line 24-inch wheels with low-profile tires. But if you plan to drive off flat roads, alternative wheels are available — 22-inch Concave One — with more aggressive tires.

Since the basis is the Land Rover Defender 110 P400, equipped with a 400-horsepower 3.0-liter gasoline V6, the installation of a sports exhaust system and a reprogrammed engine control unit allowed to increase the engine output to 505 forces. Other technical improvements imply the installation of reinforced brakes.

The interior can be updated either only by changing the factory upholstery to a combination of leather and Alcantara, or by installing ErgoMed seats from Recaro with heating, ventilation, and built-in airbags. The cost of improvements to the SUV in Manhart is not disclosed.
