New body kit turns Suzuki Jimny into a mini Land Rover Defender

Japanese tuning company DAMD can turn your Suzuki Jimny into a tiny Land Rover Defender or even a Mercedes G-Class

While customers wait patiently for JLR to reveal the new Defender, a Japanese tuning company called DAMD have created a unique body kit for the Suzuki Jimny that makes it resemble a Land Rover Defender.

Called the 'Little D', the body kit includes nose alterations such as adding another headlight bulb for the Defender's signature trio and "LITTLE D" lettering above the grille, which ditches the Wrangler-like vertical slats for horizontal bars. Also included is a larger front bumper with a more prominent skid plate, while mud flaps, knobby off-road tires, bare spare tire, and the angled rear bumper made to look like the Defender's visible chassis complete the look. The Jimny's boxy profile remains as do the wheel arches and roof cap.

Best small 4x4 to buy

Of course, if a little Defender is a bit too average for your taste then DAMD also offer a G-Class body kit for your Jimny. The ‘Little G’ is much the same as the ‘Little D’ with the body kit designed to resemble the much bigger Mercedes G-Class. A new grille, air vents, chrome skid plate and headlights create a surprisingly accurate imitation while black wheels, white paint and a contrasting black coach line make the ‘Little G’ appear more premium and noticeable than both the ‘Little D’ and a standard Jimny.

This is not the first time DAMD have fitted custom body kits to popular Japanese cars, having previously tinkered with a Mazda MX-5, Toyota GT 86 and a Subaru WRX STi.

Prices for both the ‘Little D’ and ‘Little G’ are yet to be announced although both are slated for a 2019 release date. Customers interested can register with the website to receive further information when it comes online.
