The Land Rover Defender is arguably the jewel in the British automaker’s storied history. Enthusiasts from North America to Japan have gone to great lengths to restore and maintain some of the older, more revered models. Based in Portugal, Alvarez Works is a boutique studio that restores Land Rover Defenders into drivable works of art.

Operating on an inquiry basis, each project the studio takes on is meant to tap into the unique story of both the vehicle and its driver. For its latest endeavor, Alvarez Works took a 1999 Land Rover Defender, stripped it to its core elements and recreated it into a shiny sky blue classic. The finished vehicle includes a newly installed engine, axles, transfer case, springs, dampers and a turbo 2.4-liter Td4 four-cylinder motor.

Inside, the SUV boasts an elegant orange-camel tanned leather that adorns the seats and center console, as well as a matching sky blue surface across the media accents. For those looking to purchase or make an inquiry into a custom vehicle of their own, please visit Alvarez Works’ website.
