2023 Santorini Black Metallic 2-Door Soft Top

*** SOLD ***

Osprey Custom 4x4, world-renowned builders of custom vehicles, proudly presents their latest showpiece: a steadfast Santorini Black Metallic 2-Door Soft Top, embodying a seamless combination of modern enhancements and the timeless allure of an iconic British offroader.

Crafted with precision, this robust build was completed in September 2023 by our team of skilled Master Craftsmen at our headquarters in Castle Hayne, North Carolina. It's powered by the formidable 6.2L Corvette LS3 V8 engine, matched to a smooth-shifting 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission featuring a Camaro-style gear selector with an LED display. The heavy-duty LT230 transfer case, equipped with a center differential lock, ensures that all four wheels receive the full force of its 430+ horsepower and 425+ pound-feet of torque. Praised by AutoBlog as "unquestionably good", this powertrain effortlessly conquers all terrains. Furthermore, the vehicle features upgraded front and rear disc brakes, ensuring quiet, secure, and efficient stops.

The upgraded heavy-duty front and rear axles are mounted on the new hot-dipped galvanized chassis and located by slightly elevated Terrafirma® shocks and springs. The chassis features Terrafirma® caster-corrected front and cranked rear radius arms, track rod, drag link, and steering damper, all safeguarded by a heavy-duty aluminum front skid plate. The vehicle stands on classic gloss black 16-inch “Freestyle” alloy wheels, wrapped with chunky 285/75R16 Atturo® Trail Blade® A/T tires that are built to truly handle any terrain with a tough tread compound constructed for drivers who demand strength and versatile traction.

The body was expertly finished in deep Santorini Black Metallic, complemented by color-matched wheel arches and trim, all completed at our in-house body and paint facility. Adding to the vehicle's safety features, a satin black powder-coated multi-point Safety Devices® safety cage provides enhanced passenger protection. The premium black soft top fits snugly, keeping the elements at bay, while the quick and easy-to-roll-up/zip-out side and rear windows offer the freedom of an open-air experience whenever desired.

At the front end, the vehicle showcases a gloss black KBX® grille with a satin silver wire mesh insert, gloss black light surrounds, side intake, and forced-air wing top vents. Custom, LED-illuminated, laser-etched "Osprey" black anodized aluminum door handles, along with black anodized aluminum door, bonnet, and windscreen hinges, emphasize the stealthy exterior color scheme.

For modern and precise illumination, LED headlamps with smoked marker, turn, reverse, and tail lamps have been fitted. The impressive front is completed with a satin black powder-coated slim-line bumper featuring two integrated LED daytime running lamps. At the rear, the vehicle features a satin black powder-coated North American Spec (NAS) step bumper, designed to accommodate a high-definition rearview camera, a 2-inch hitch receiver, and jacking/recovery points. Additionally, a heavy-duty swing-away rear tire carrier provides a neat and functional solution for storing the spare tire.

Satin black powder-coated "Fire & Ice"-style tubular side steps make entering and exiting the passenger cabin easy. Inside, you'll find a modern-style dash that ensures excellent heating and air conditioning, providing year-round comfort for the occupants. The well-appointed interior is complete with durable Exmoor Trim® Black Rack & ½ Leather upholstered heated front sport seats with contrasting white stitching. Additionally, the four side-facing rear seats can be stowed away when not in use, offering ultimate flexibility — seating for additional friends and family or creating true utilitarian cargo space — with over 55 cubic feet available when folded.


Behind the black sport steering wheel, you'll find an impressive driver command center. It is focused around a satin black fascia that houses a state-of-the-art infotainment system. This system includes an Atoto® S8 Android-based 7-inch HD capacitive touch-screen head unit with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®, dual Bluetooth®, built-in Digital Signal Processor, and GPS navigation. The audio experience is enhanced by a rich-sounding Rockford Fosgate® 8-speaker array plus a Rockford Fosgate® Punch® P3S 8" dual voice coil subwoofer, backed by a Kenwood® eXcelon® 5-channel, 1600-watt amplifier.

Convenient amenities in the vehicle include central locking, power windows, a leather-wrapped center console with a storage cubby, a wireless charger for your mobile device, USB charging points, and two oversized aluminum cup holders. The front windscreen is heated for extra frosty mornings, and security is handled by a Viper® keyless entry system with remote starting. To protect the interior, heavy-duty rubber floor mats are provided for the fully carpeted front footwells and rear loadspace/passenger area.
