If you’re one of the fortunate sons who owns a Land Rover Defender 90, 110, or 130, you have an iconic mountain goat of a 4×4 that looks as good parked in front of a Michelin Star restaurant as it does slathered in mud and grass on an isolated hillside in the country. You love everything about your Defender except for the cheap plastic key body that comes with the vehicle. The folks at Curb have come up with a beautiful replacement, a precision CNC machined key that works with any pre-transponder version of the aforementioned Defenders. The single unit key is made from 303 stainless steel and then coated in a resilient and handsome black PVD that’s corrosion resistant and available in polished or machined finishes. Its look, feel, and heft are enhanced by long key slots and beveled surfaces, and it’s a key that’s so well crafted it may actually outlast your Defender. The Ignition Defender Key is built to exact factory specs and simply needs to be cut by a good locksmith.
