Project Red Phoenix Soars: ECD Automotive's Defender 110 Lands in Denver, Colorado

Red Phoenix Classic ECD Custom Defender

KISSIMMEE, Fla., May 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ECD Auto Design, the world’s largest Land Rover and Jaguar restoration company known for its custom luxury builds, including bespoke Defenders, Range Rovers, Jaguar E-Types, and Ford Mustangs, proudly delivers Project Red Phoenix to its new Colorado home.

The new 110 Defender is planned to see plenty of adventure from towing a trailer for family camping trips to trekking up the Colorado mountains and with its LS3 430 HP 6.2L engine, Project Red Phoenix will pack plenty of power to take on any challenge. To further enhance its capabilities, the vehicle is outfitted with a 6-point external roll cage, top mounted spotlights, ladder, and 10,000 lb. capacity winch mounted on the front bumper.

The beauty of the Red Phoenix continues when you open the door and see all the luxurious accents and details from its Corbeau Trailcat seats to custom cluster. Its seats and interior material are wrapped in gorgeous brown leather, with black accents and stitched with tight diamond patterns, elevating its aesthetic appeal to a level beyond what could have ever been added on an OEM built vehicle. The attention to the finer details continues as you look forward at the MOMO custom brown leather wrapped steering wheel and Moal Bomber gauge cluster with custom details down to the painted Carmine Red faces to white number and needles. The details truly make this truck a showstopper.

Project Red Phoenix has several unique custom features that truly set it apart including its right-hand driver’s compartment, vintage black wood paneling, cargo flooring and hidden floor lockbox. The exterior is painted in a high gloss Tesla Red coat with the roof accented in Narvik Black.

Electronic upgrades include touchscreen user interface infotainment system coupled with JL audio speakers and 2 Kenwood slimline subwoofers. The truck also includes Bluetooth audio, USB chargers, cordless charging, backup camera and sensors, blind spot assistant, Apple CarPlay, and automatic headlights.

For those that would like to dream from the comfort of their own home, ECD has recently launched a new state of the art vehicle configurator where users can design their dream vehicle from any computer, tablet, or phone. This is just another step in our forward-thinking process as we continue to deliver industry-leading solutions. Check out our new vehicle configurator here.
