Heritage Customs Builds Valiance for Winston Gerschtanowitz

• One-of-one Heritage Customs Valiance, based on Defender 110 P400e
• Features bespoke interior, forged wheels and 3D jewellery
• Carchitecture project for TV celebrity Winston Gerschtanowitz
This Heritage Customs Valiance, commissioned by television presenter and actor Winston Gerschtanowitz, is equipped with forged 22 inch diamond cut Space Cowboy wheels. The exterior and interior components are painted in Santorini Black and the interior is fully reupholstered in black leather and Alcantara. This Heritage Customs Valiance is based on a 2021 Land Rover Defender 110 P400e PHEV.

This latest Heritage Customs Valiance, in stylish Santorini Black metallic, has our new 22 inch Space Cowboy forged alloy wheels installed, with five diamond cut frames. The interior was reupholstered in black leather, colour-matched to this Valiance’s Santorini Black exterior paint. Winston Gerschtanowitz was keen to co-design a stylish and understated Valiance through the Heritage Customs carchitecture program. We placed subtle overfenders on the body, which were painted Santorini Black, and also painted the bumpers, side cladding and bonnet diamond plates; all matching the black interior.”

“Inside we painted the dashboard, door handles, lower speaker covers and a selection of other elements in Santorini Black, as per request by patron Winston Gerschtanowitz. Black leather and quilted Alcantara was applied to trim the seats, door cards, upper speaker covers and dashboard, featuring a contrasting off-white stitching. On the headrests a laser engraved, rather than embroidered, Heritage Customs logo can be found. It ensures special tactile properties and a restrained as well as unique aesthetic. The etched decorative plate in the rear door has a profound 3D effect of small squares.”

– Jan-Pieter Kroezen, co-owner of Heritage Customs
