KISSIMMEE, FL; January 29, 2019; E.C.D. Automotive Design, known for their prestigious, high-end luxury vehicles, recently completed an aggressive LS3-powered custom Defender 110 in a stunning Crystal Covelline Blue finish.

Project Azure was designed to embody the iconic, yet subtle look of the British classic, but with something unique to the client. Pictures do no justice for the stunning Crystal Covelline Blue paint. Underneath the hood is an aggressive 6.2L LS3 V8 engine paired with upgraded headers and a full Borla Performance exhaust system for more power and an ultra-fierce growl. A set of 18�?? black Kahn Defend 1983 wheels pull together the clean exterior of this custom Defender 110.

The interior of Project Azure looks quite posh with Cadence Buckwheat and Black leather throughout. Occupants ride comfortably in the hand-trimmed custom seats. There are plenty of modern luxuries as well, such as a Sony infotainment system, a full JL Audio sound system, in-vehicle WiFi, wireless charging, and rear air-conditioning controls for all passengers.

If Project Azure is a preview of what's to come from E.C.D. Automotive Design in 2019, then it's a safe bet that they will continue to dominate the custom vehicle industry.
