2010 Land Rover Defender 90 Yachting Edition by Startech

Startech is going to arrive at the Essen Motorshow with a tuning package for one of the oldest models in the world: the Land Rover Defender . The package is called the Yachting Edition and features a bright white exterior paint job with a premium leather/Alcantara interior dyed navy blue.

While the exterior only gets new running boards with integrated entrance lights and wider tires, the interior gets a complete overhaul. For starters, Startech has found the finest navy blue leather with contrasting seams and applied them to the door and side panels. The same treatment has also been applied to the dashboard, center console, and the Recaro sport seats.

The headliner is made from Alcantara dyed the same color as the leather appointments. The tuner also added an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel, shifter, emergency brake, and reduction gear lever all covered with navy-blue leather and a Yachting Edition plaque on the center console. These additions don’t really add much of a nautical flair until you look down and see the oiled teak stretching the length of the vehicle.

Aside from the aesthetic changes provided to the Defender, the SUV also gets a high-end sound system with an integrated touch screen navigation system.

From the marina directly into rough terrain: The STARTECH Land Rover Defender 90 Yachting Edition looks as great at the marina as it does on magnificent boulevards or when venturing off road.

Painted bright white, the premium leather/Alcantara interior dyed navy blue, foot wells and trunk clad in the finest teak – the English off-roader with lavish STARTECH design perfectly transfers maritime ambiance into the automobile.

Wide tires in size 265/75 R 16 bring three additional centimeters of tread in contact with the road and give the Land Rover an even brawnier appearance. To complement the wider tires the STARTECH designers developed new running boards with integrated entrance lights that are activated via the keyless fob or by opening one of the doors.

The exterior appearance of the STARTECH Yachting Edition further includes such tasteful details as the SVX front grille and headlight covers painted in body color.

Getting into the STARTECH Land Rover Defender 90 Yachting Edition, made easier by the STARTECH running boards, is a very special experience. The captain and his crew are welcomed by classic yacht design, which uses genuine oiled teak following the best ship-building traditions. This fine material lends the trunk and the foot wells a unique air.

The company upholstery shop attended to the remaining interior of the Defender 90 and transformed it from a rather mundane cockpit into an exclusively appointed wellness space.

The finest navy-blue leather with white contrasting seams refines door and side panels alike and adorns dashboard, center console and the Recaro sport seats. The new seats offer much better lateral support than the stock seats. But that’s not all: Their leather upholstery is masterfully sewn using white baseball-style cross stitching and adds a modern contrast to the classic Land Rover interior. The shells of the seatbacks are painted white to match the exterior.

The headliner is made from Alcantara dyed the same color as the leather appointments. Precision-sewn white seams add magnificent highlights here as well.

Among the numerous other loving STARTECH details are an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel, shifter, emergency brake and reduction gear lever all covered with navy-blue leather and a Yachting Edition plaque on the center console.

Rounding out the STARTECH treatment is a high-end sound system calibrated to the Defender interior. The sound system also features an integrated touch screen navigation system.

The car looks simple and clean. The car’s interior is very convenient and spacious with foldable back seats.

Like I said, look at what a Defender 90 is going for, used, right now, and those are more than 10 years old. This is a new, limited edition, pretty much loaded to the gill version (I know it’s not a 90). I could almost guarantee it would go close to the 40k number. And you know what else, people would buy them up.

I also know there are cheaper versions. I’m talking about this one, this special edition. If an LR2 starts at 36k, and for some reason they ended up bringing this Defender over (for arguments sake), there is no way it would list at or near 22k.

I love this car,very bulky in style and gain confidence when you riding this type because of its bulky image..Enjoy!

This is a very nice Land Rover with some character, but some details make this car looks like a toy.

As soon as I need an offroader, I’ll buy this one used. Well... it will still be produced new in 10 years, won’t it? So I can buy it new.

dang another bad off roader is already being built, I LOVE this truck. Is this beauty even available for import into the states?
