This is the Land Rover Defender Convertible You’ve Been Looking For

Finally, a topless Defender

  • Custom convertible limited to just five

  • Comes with semi-power top, loads of class


Want the new Defender convertible that Land Rover is too scared to make? Coachbuilder and designer Heritage Customs has the ticket. A modern Landie with the top chopped called the Valiance Convertible and limited to just five.

Heritage Customs is the creation of designer Niels van Roij and Jan-Pieter Kroezen, and they are designing and building some absolutely stunning Defenders. The latest chops off the roof of just five Land Rover Defender 90 models to make something that’s much better than any previous factory convertible on the last Defender.

The metal tops are cut and then replaced with an opening part-electric fabric replacement. Five special colour and interior packs were selected, including Cote d’Azur finished in blue (with some sweet whitewall tires), the based on the original production Land Rover Solihull Sand in a grey-green that matches that very first Defender, and the red Kokkini Paralia, named for a red beach in Suriname. They will also, of course, customize yours exactly how you’d like it using the company’s Carchitecture studio.

The price? Heritage Customs says the Valiance ‘vert starts from the equivalent of CAD $202,000, or $160,000 US. Before tax, of course. We’re sure you can run up the tab from there, as well, if you want.
