Defender Works V8 Trophy

Following the strategy of recovering emblematic models from the past, the Land Rover classics division has just announced the production of 25 units of the Defender Works V8 Trophy, an SUV that made history in the legendary Land Rover Camel Trophy.

Based on the Defender Works V8 models from 2012-2016, the re-engineered vehicle will have a 405 hp V5 5.0 atmospheric petrol engine, an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, reinforced brakes and a behavior maximization kit. An extensive series of adjustments are also being made specifically for off-road use. They will also come equipped with LED headlamps, a Heritage front grille, Land Rover Trophy badging, a black Windsor leather interior, a front winch, multi-point expedition cage, roof rack, underbody protection, A-bar, raised air intake, LED spotlights, and mud-terrain tires. Proposed in both the short (90) and long (110 Station Wagon) versions, all units will also feature an exclusive Eastnor Yellow finish, with Narvik Black details and high-strength steel rims, in matching yellow.

It should also be noted that customers who come to purchase one of these 25 beauties will also receive an invitation to participate in an exclusive three-day adventure at Eastnor Castle, Herefordshire, United Kingdom. Considered the spiritual home of Land Rovers testing and development.
