The firm reportedly plans to chop the top off the Defender in 2022. Five examples will be produced and the conversion will be called the Defender Valiance Convertible.
The renderings you see here provide some indication of what the Defender Valiance Convertible will look like.
Various colour combinations will be offered too such as Côte d’Azur with a Cognac Brown soft-top roof, copper interior trim accents and riding on 22-inch white-walled wheels. For those wanting something more classic, perhaps Solihull Sand will do with its light green body, grey bumpers and Sand Beige soft top. Kokkini Paralia combines a matte red body finish with black bumpers and black fabric roof.
The Valiance Convertible treatment appears to be cosmetic only and powertrain upgrades aren’t likely.
