2021 110 Soft Hood
Here's your chance to own a hand-crafted, bespoke vehicle that you'll rarely see here in the USA. World-renowned Defender experts, Osprey Custom 4x4 in Castle Hayne, North Carolina, is very pleased to present our latest adventure-ready 110 Soft Hood – a thoroughly modern interpretation of the classic off-roader that we're all very familiar with.
Starting with a new galvanized chassis, this ALL-NEW build was completed by our Team in December 2021. Forward momentum is courtesy of a high-revving, deep-breathing 6.2L Corvette LS3 V8 mated to a smooth-shifting 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission controlled by a custom PCS® push-button gear selector with LED display, conveniently mounted in the custom center console. The heavy-duty LT230 transfer case with center differential lock (CDL) distributes constant power to all four wheels, ensuring as much of the 435+ horsepower and 445+ pound-feet of ground-shaking torque make it to the ground as possible. Power disc brakes at all four corners ensure stopping is safe, quick, and efficient.
The upgraded, heavy-duty front and rear axles are situated by slightly-taller-than-stock Terrafirma® Pro Sport springs, along with heavy-duty Terrafirma® shocks, Terrafirma® caster-corrected front and cranked rear radius arms, track rod, drag link, and Terrafirma® steering damper, all protected by a heavy-duty aluminum front skidplate. It rides on tough, color-matched 16" ‘Wolf-spec’ heavy-duty steel wheels wrapped with 265/75R16 Iron Man® All Country® M/T mud-terrain tires with enough grip to dig into loose dirt, sand, or mud so you can power through uneven rock and rough terrain.
The body panels, layered in rich Arles Blue with matching wheel arches were carefully mated to the chassis once back from our in-house bodywork and paint shop. The front end was updated with a KBX-style premium grille surround, gloss black light surrounds, and side intake vent, and "Fire & Ice"-style side steps with silver tread help to ease ingress & egress. To tow your toys, we've equipped this vehicle with a NAS-style rear step bumper, complete with a 2" hitch receiver, jacking/recovery points, trailer wiring harness, and a color rearview camera. A heavy-duty swing-away rear tire carrier brings up the rear.
In the cockpit, the modern TDCI PUMA-style dash provides excellent heating and air conditioning ensuring the passenger cabin is comfortable year-round. The bespoke interior is complete with heated Exmoor Denim Twill front sport seats and there’s a heated front windscreen for those extra frosty mornings. SIX individual side-facing, foldable rear troop seats with matching upholstery provide the ultimate in flexibility – seating for 6 passengers or true utilitarian cargo space. THIS IS A TRUE 8-PASSENGER VEHICLE, FOLKS!
Infotainment is provided by a double-DIN Atoto® S8 Android-based touch-screen head unit with navigation, Bluetooth®, WIRELESS Apple Car Play®, and Android Auto® integrated into the satin black fascia center stack and complemented by a rich-sounding Rockford Fosgate® 8-speaker array. The leather-wrapped custom center console with a deep cubby storage compartment is equipped with a wireless fast-charging pad, USB charging ports, and aluminum cupholders. The front windows are power-operated, and the Viper® keyless entry and remote starting provide security and convenience. Heavy-duty rubber floor mats protect the front footwells and rear loadspace area, and the tight-fitting black soft hood with zip-out rollable windows nicely tops things off and gives it that classic “safari” look.
