Luxurious Defender!

Now, one of the world's leading specialists in bespoke luxury vehicles, Carisma Auto Design, has added unrivalled luxury.

Carisma has enhanced the interior, allowing clients to engage in outdoor activities while in total comfort.

With a range of exotic leather, carpet and wood available in any combination, no two Defenders from Carisma Auto Design are ever the same. The specification and design of each Carisma Defender is totally unique to the client and only limited by their imagination.

For outdoor sporting pursuits, Carisma can hand-craft a bespoke gun cabinet from the finest wood, featuring magnificent cut-glass crystal champagne flutes and tumblers, complete with separate refrigeration facilities.

Carisma says: "No matter what you intend to use your Carisma Defender for, you can choose from a range of multimedia options to suit your every need. Featuring on-board Windows or Apple operating systems, [and] Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to ensure you are always connected when on the move, with audio equipment from Bang & Olufsen to provide the ultimate travelling experience."

Sales and Marketing Director, Carisma Auto Design, Clive Drake, said: "One day a client came to me wanting a vehicle that had all of the capabilities of the Defender but with an interior ambience of a Range Rover with the feeling of pure exclusivity of a Rolls-Royce. The Carisma Auto Design conversion of the Defender was born."

Amongst some of the recent requests have been solid crystal ashtrays and champagne flutes; integrated premium pen sets with tailored housing; customised seat embroidery; 42" televisions and refrigeration units. All these and much more have all been tastefully hand-crafted into vehicles over Carisma Auto Design's 14-year history.
