Defender & Friends for those who love perfection


We offer a full restoration process experience for our clients.

Every week during the 6 months of the restoration period, we maintain our clients and friends updated, sharing with full transparency all the process in our different facilities: Workshop, Mechanical and Paint Booth. The work is extremely thorough and is fully photo documented.

The personalization of every detail beats the limits you can imagine.

You will never find another Defender like ours, because we are specialist in manufacturing unique parts and materials to make your Defender very special and exclusive.

Defender & Friends Stocks:

From our workshop location in Barcelona (Spain), we select and stock the nicest units available in our sunny country. Before buying a Defender for the restorations, our qualified mechanics check the following:

· Documentation with our US Import attorney, to guarantee the USA entrance and NC title when the car arrives to the USA. (The trucks are being sold with a clean North Carolina title in hand in the seller’s name as well as our Spanish registration documents and a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate).

· Chassis and body rust-free condition.

· Driving test.

US Warranty:

1-year/12,000-mile $3,000 limited warranty from our US partner, Performance Rovers NC.

We never let our clients alone; our after sales services in the US will take care of you as part of our family & friends.
