East Coast Defender has just revealed the Land Rover Defender Beast, which took home the People’s Choice Award at Florida’s Festival of Speed. This iconic 4×4 is not just a looker, but has the power to back it up in the form of a Corvette-sourced LS3 Performance engine, tuned to handle any terrain.

“There’s also an upgraded Terrafirma suspension to ensure the Beast can reach its top speed and brake effectively.

The Defender also has a push-button shifter that replaces the traditional lever shifter, offering split-second shifting capability with the push of a button,” according to HiConsumption.
