Paul Smith is an English designer and as an homage to the last run of the iconic Land Rover Defender, he's created a Bespoke Paul Smith Land Rover Defender ($TBA). When it comes to my cars, I'm usually a black on black kind of guy, but there is something really cool about this ride. In his design, Paul used 27 individual colors, which makes a nod to the truck's service history with the Army, Navy, and Airforce. The colors also reference the Defender's ties to the British countryside. Sadly, the Paul Smith Defender is a one-off and probably won't be going on sale anytime soon.
