Remember the old days when a truck was a truck, and was completely devoid of luxury amenities? Those are the days that gave us the original sport-utility vehicles, like the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen, the Toyota Land Cruiser, and this, the Land Rover Defender. The Merc G has since gone dramatically upscale, the Land Cruiser has been transformed into the Lexus LX, but the Land Rover Defender is still the bare-bones workhorse it always was. That is, until Aznom came along and changed all that.
The Italian coachbuilder known for its innovative Mini conversions took the Defender and tricked it out with all manner of custom touches, from the carbon-fiber bumpers to the light brown leather and Alcantara interior. Tuning house Romeo Ferraris was brought in to squeeze some extra juice out of the 2.4-liter turbo-diesel inline-four engine, bringing output up from 122 horsepower to 152. And of course the requisite custom paint job is all part of the package. Have a closer look in the gallery below.
