Heritage Customs Makes One-Off Defender for Dutch TV Star

Coachbuilder showcases latest Defender creation

  • New 22-inch wheels and all black trim set off exterior

  • While matched paint, leather and Alcantara highlight the inside


Heritage Design, the customization company that is the work of automotive designer Neils van Roij, has just revealed another fully bespoke Land Rover Defender. This Defender 110 has a custom interior, forged wheels, and 3D jewelry and was made for Dutch TV presenter Winston Gerschtanowitz.

The Heritage Customs Valiance, as the company labels its Land Rovers, starts with a Defender 110 P400e, but the changes start with a set of forged 22-inch wheels. The alloys are diamond cut and the company calls them Space Cowboy wheels. Each alloy has five diamond cut frames to contrast with the dark finish.

The Landie was repainted in Santorini Black, with subtle fender flares to cover the wheels painted in the same finish. Then the bumpers, side cladding, and the diamond plates on the Defender’s hood were all painted to match the body, which also now matches the interior.

That interior saw the dash, door handles, lower speaker covers, and a load of other trim painted in black. What wasn’t painted was then recovered in black leather or quilted Alcantara boasting a contrast off-white stitch. Those headliner logos are actually laser cut in the hide, not embossed as is the usual.

Heritage Customs will make you a bespoke Rover of your won, with the process taking an estimated month and a half. The company says it’s the only one focused solely on the Defender, and its wheels are designed with that model in mind. They’ll do both old and new Defender models.
