Meet the Limited Edition Land Rover Defender Works V8

Land Rover Defender fans, take heed. A new, limited edition Defender model is here, and just in time to celebrate Land Rover’s 70th Anniversary!

Land Rover Defender History

The Land Rover Defender 90 and Land Rover Defender 110 SUVs were named in 1991. These two Land Rover models were based off the already-in-production Land Rover Ninety and Land Rover One Ten, which were, themselves, released in 1984 and 1983, respectively. The Series I, released in 1948 was, in turn, the inspiration for the Land Rover One Ten and Ninety models. While the Defender does, then, have a rich heritage, production halted in 2016, after which point a unique Land Rover Heritage experience was released. But the Defender’s journey is not over after all, as it turns out. That’s because a brand-new, limited edition Defender model has recently been announced.

About the New Land Rover Defender Works V8

This new Land Rover is inspired largely by the aforementioned models, especially the 50th Anniversary Edition Defender models. Its engine pays homage to powerful engines that were once equipped in original Series III models of the late 1970s. But despite its ties to the past, this new Land Rover is unique. It is the most powerful and the fastest version of a Defender that Land Rover has ever produced, featuring a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine that gives it an estimated 0-60 MPH time of 5.6 seconds.

This new defender will be available for a limited time only and will feature modern touches like bi-LED headlamps and over eight standard body colors, each with contrasting wheels, arches, and a contrasting front grille. Door handles, hood lettering, and the fuel filler cap will be finished in machined aluminum. Inside, you’ll find full Windsor leather trim over the door panels, dash, headliner, and special Recaro sport seats. A Classic Infotainment System is also included. Sold by Land Rover Classic, this Land Rover model will be offered in 90 and 110 wheelbase derivatives, but only up to 150 models will be released. Land Rover does, however, say that “The all-new Defender is subject to further announcements”. See for more information.
