Arkonik gave this 1992 Land Rover Defender a plush, modern upgrade.
Along with enhanced off-road capabilities, this restomod features a custom cabin with heated seats and alloy switchgear.

British custom-shop Arkonik is the world’s leading Defender specialist and seeing this amazing 110 build named “Clone”, we fully understand why!

Classic British style paired with modern American muscle.

This Stunning Land Rover Defender Is the Ultimate Custom Beach Cruiser.

The reason for our admiration is the fact that Arkonik are capable of producing extraordinary looking and performing machines.

Some might scoff at Arkonik’s Defenders for not being pure. But that’s far from the case. What Arkonik is doing is rejuvenating classic SUVs for a modern crowd.

I asked Hayes why the firm only builds Land Rover Defenders and he explained his philosophy of sticking to one thing and perfecting it. After driving two of its products, it’s clear Arkonik lives that mantra.

Arkonik, which has a dedicated representative in the U.S, has been restoring Land Rovers since 2011 and its expertise shows in its latest model, the Defender-based Forager D110.

Here we have the results of British outfit Arkonik’s latest Defender project. Pleasing enough to not make us lament the demise of the ungentrified Defender.

British bespoke shop Arkonik keeps on delivering hit after hit, like this newly unleashed Land Rover Defender that’s been customized to perfection.

This Defender modification is for present times, for now, and it comes from a custom Defender restoration shop called Arkonik.

UK-based Arkonik has built up an impressive fleet of Defenders for a fortunate group of global consumers. But according to Andy Stacey, the company’s Brand Manager, this stealthy 1992 D110 in Corris Grey is the builder’s “most formidable restoration to date.”

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Arkonik, but it’s abundantly clear that these customizers out of the U.K. haven’t lost their touch. In fact, one of their newest builds, a Land Rover Defender 110 they’re calling ‘Black Hawk’ is one of the most intimidatingly impressive SUV builds we’ve seen.

Adventure is in the blood of some vehicles and chief amongst them is the Land Rover but if you’re the sort that likes to stand out from the crowd and have a steed a little out of the ordinary, the guys at Arkonik are the brand for you as no one does custom built machines better.

The latest gem to roll off Arkonik’s production line is a handsome off-roader fuelled by a powerful, long-lasting 200 turbodiesel engine. Based on a 1991 D110 Land Rover Defender, the ‘Camelot’ has been respectfully restored in classic Eastnor Green and Chawton White.

Built for royalty, this Santorini Black Land Rover 110 Defender is decked-out for the cause and ready for battle. It’s all courtesy of Arkonik – the aftermarket builders who enjoy taking things to the next level in the realm of beefy 4×4 SUVs.

Arkonik doesn’t simply “refurbish” the Land Rovers that come through their doors; they truly rebuild them from the ground up. With most of their sales to U.S.-based customers, the company has sought clean left-hand-drive examples from climates where the steel frames were unlikely to suffer.

A love letter to British heritage, this custom “Ranger Edition” Land Rover Defender by Arkonik stuns with its tasteful restorations and customizations. Adventures ahead.

Car customisation is something that takes a lot of time, patience and design nous and so far as Land Rovers are concerned nobody does it better than the guys at UK based workshop, Arkonik (which is why they’ve featured on the pages of The Coolector so consistently).

Arkonik is a company that builds and restores legendary Land Rover Defenders. It’s no surprise its latest build keeps with the tradition of the company. The Patriot D110 is a showstopper. Painted in Aries Blue, Arkonik paid attention to every detail on this build.
