• 5.0-litre petrol V8 New Land Rover Defender is the most powerful and fastest ever created by Land Rover, with 0-60mph in 5.6sec*
• New Land Rover Collector’s edition – Limited run of up to 150 Defenders badged 70th Edition
Land Rover today announces a limited-edition high-performance version of the iconic New Land Rover Defender, with up to 150 V8- powered examples re-engineered to celebrate the Land Rover marque’s 70th anniversary in 2018.
The New Land Rover Defender Works V8 pays homage to the early high-powered engines in both the Series III Stage 1 V8 from 1979 and subsequent Defenders including the Land Rover Defender 50th Anniversary Edition, which are highly sought after by enthusiasts and collectors today.
2018 Land Rover Defender Works V8 is the most powerful and fastest version that Land Rover has ever created. The 2018 Land Rover Defender 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol V8 powertrain produces 405PS and 515 Nm of torque (the standard Defender delivered 122PS and 360 Nm). The new Defender Works V8 will accelerate from 0-60mph in 5.6sec*, while top speed is increased to 106mph.
Tim Hannig, Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director, said: “It’s fitting that we’ve been able to release the full potential of the iconic Defender, whose much-loved shape remains synonymous with Land Rover, 70 years since it was seen in public for the first time.
“The idea of reintroducing a V8 Defender was something we were discussing as far back as 2014, when we were still building the Defender in Solihull. We knew the demand was there for a powerful and fast Defender; the Land Rover authenticity is the ultimate finishing touch for discerning clients purchasing these collector’s edition Defenders.”
The 2018 Land Rover Defender V8 powertrain will be fitted to 150 specially-selected and re-engineered Defenders for the 2018 Land Rover Defender Interior 70th Edition, complemented by an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission with sport mode, uprated brakes and handling kit (springs, dampers and anti-roll bars), plus exclusive 18-inch diamond-turned Sawtooth alloy wheels and 265/65 R18 all-terrain tires.
2018 Land Rover Defender options: Eight standard body colors include two satin finishes – contrasting with a Santorini Black roof, wheel arches and front grille – finished with machined aluminum door handles, fuel filler cap and Defender bonnet lettering. A comprehensive lighting upgrade includes bi-LED headlamps.
2018 Land Rover Defender interior options: full Windsor Leather interior trim covers the dashboard, door panels, headlining and Recaro sports seats. Land Rover Classic
Both 2018 Land Rover Defender 90 and 2018 Land Rover Defender 110 wheelbase Defender Works V8 derivatives will be available to purchase direct from Land Rover Classic, with 2018 Land Rover Defender price £150,000 for a 90 in the UK.
A select number of 2018 Land Rover Defender upgrades inspired by Defender Works V8 will also be available to purchase soon from Land Rover Classic, including power upgrades for the TDCi diesel engine, high-performance suspension and braking kits.
Land Rover intends to continue the Defender lineage and will use its technology, pioneering engineering capability and design expertise to ensure the longevity of the Land Rover Defender name. Land Rover Defender V8 70th Edition price from £150,000 upwards!
