The Build Process

If you can dream it, we can build it

A Defender hand-built just for you,
from the first sketch to the final bolt.

Our process begins with your vision and passion. Each custom Land Rover Defender is a testament to meticulous craftsmanship, starting from the initial sketch and culminating in the tightening of the final bolt. Our dedicated father and son team bring your dreams to life, ensuring every detail aligns with your preferences. From the selection of premium materials to precision engineering, our commitment to excellence results in a Defender that is truly one-of-a-kind, tailored to your individual style and driving aspirations.

Customize Your Manz Defender

Body Style

Manz offers three models to fit your lifestyle, the Defender 90, 110, and 130 (approximate wheelbase in inches). Each model can be configured with 2 or 4 doors (90 2 doors only), as a station wagon or pickup, and with the station wagon available with a hard or soft top. Each one of these styles changes the utility, but not the versatility and capability.


Manz Defenders are available with new gas (LS3, LC9), diesel (Cummins 2.8L), and electric (coming soon) engines; or a fully rebuilt original diesel engine (300TDI). All of these engines can be matched with manual or automatic transmissions (electric automatic only).


Our personalized design process guides you through the wide range of interior materials, colors and finishes that are available for your custom Defender. Together with the use of seating styles and arrangements, dashboard design, and a variety of electronics options, you are assured of a space that reflects your lifestyle.


At Manz Motor Company, the exterior design process starts with your choice of your favorite paint color(s) but does not end there. We offer and have experience with a wide range of lighting, cargo, towing, billet, cosmetic, tire and wheel options that bring the whole design together.
