Arkonik Forager

It’s hard to believe that Arkonik are able to produce restored Land Rover Defenders with the regularity that they do considering the immense quality and attention to detail that goes into each one and their latest build, the Forager, is certainly one of their most impressive constructs to date. The Forager from Arkonik is a bold, uncompromising machine that takes no prisoners from a performance perspective and boasts visuals that are unparalleled in their awesomeness.

The Arkonik Forager has a price tag of $180,000 which is a punchy one of course but considering the vast amount of work and impeccable craftsmanship that has gone into its creation, it represents money well spent. This superb steed from Arkonik comes in an Epsom Green colour way that has a stealthy vibe that lends itself perfectly to wilderness treks and road trips. Built upon a 1991 Defender, the quality of the finish is second to none and for anyone after a new all-conquering machine, look no further.

Powerful Performer

Boasting a 3.5L V8 engine, the Arkonik Forager packs a punch out on the road and this awesome Defender is definitely ready to seek out the best off-road trails when it arrives in Virginia, USA, in search of its lucky new owner. The HELLA® spotlights, twin-cat headlamps and roof rack LEDs will be ideal for lighting the way as it scours the countryside on the hunt for adventure and new terrains to conquer.

We’re forever in awe of the raw power and aesthetic superiority of the vehicles from Arkonik and the Forager hits the high notes once again. With a price tag of $180k, you’d expect some high end components and design features and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. This breathtaking vehicle will also be able to rely on its high capacity WARN® winch to help it clear a path or tackle difficult terrain. The red WARN badge has stood for off-roading excellence for over 70 years. During that time, they’ve been constant in their pursuit of precision engineering, product development and innovation.

Throughout the build of the Arkonik Forager Land Rover Defender there is a stunning attention to detail and, as always, the build team have used nothing but the best materials and components. Some of the stand out features of the Forager include OEM Puma hood, General Grabber® AT2 tires, Trucklite Twin-Cat LEDs headlights, Front Runner® Slimline II roof rack with rear ladder and KBX® Hi-Force wing top air intakes.

First Class Interior

Whenever you lay eyes upon an Arkonik creation, one of the first things you’ll notice is that the interiors are almost as impressive as the outside of the vehicle and it’s no exception with the Forager. This spectacular steed has some mighty fine interior features which include chestnut brown leather seating, heated front row seats, black anodised gear knobs, Alpine® Touch screen sound system with Apple® CarPlay and reversing camera display.

Whilst the price tag of $180k makes this a pretty restricted purchase, if you do have the requisite readies to hand to make this your next off-road adventurer, it certainly isn’t going to let you down. It has some amazing features both inside and out and the build quality is off the charts once again.
