Heritage Customs Valiance – New Land Rover Defender
Heritage Customs Valiance: carefully curated and personalized
“We celebrate both the Defender and the owner through each commission.” Says car designer and co-founder of Heritage Customs Niels van Roij. “In a co-design process with the patron, we shape exterior and interior. We process materials, such as aluminium, leathers, denims, teak woods and copper. We have been commissioned to design an interior symbolising a Caribbean island where one of our clients met each other and have colour matched paints of another Valiance to the classic Defender a different owner has in his collection.
Your personal Land Rover Defender
Jan-Pieter Kroezen, founder of Heritage Customs: “Each bespoke Valiance is a real design statement with distinctive, custom-made details such as solid aluminium air vents in the fenders and milled protective plates on the bonnet replacing the plastic faux diamond plate. Exclusive personal ideas can be added to all our hand-made cars. And a selection of distinctive colours, designs and even patterns are available for the Heritage Customs Valiance interior upholstery.
The construction of the first bespoke Heritage Customs Valiance model has now been completed. According to Jan-Pieter Kroezen every Heritage Customs commission will be carefully composed: “If desired, each Valiance can have striking materials and colour schemes for both interior and exterior. Everything is possible: from laser engraved aluminium door inlays and dashboard trim, personalized treadplates and colour-matched leathers in special patterns, to aluminium boot lid inserts and full leather door cards.”
Ideation sketches and design renderings
As is the case with all Heritage Customs projects, each Valiance starts out with sketches. After conversations at the homes of the future owners, the team together selects the most appropriate ideas, materials, colours and sketches to be developed into bespoke carchitecture pieces, all in close collaboration with the patrons.
