To celebrate 70 years since the original Land Rover series made its debut, the brand has announced a high-performance, limited-edition version of the beloved Land Rover Defender — the Defender V8 Edition.
Featuring a 5.0 liter, naturally-aspirated petrol V8 engine that can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in 5.6 seconds, the V8 Edition Defender pays tribute to the high-powered engines in the brand’s earlier models such as the Series III Stage 1 V8 and boasts a top speed of 106 MPH.
Additional features include an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission with sport mode, uprated brakes, springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, exclusive 18-inch diamond-turned Sawtooth alloy wheels and 265/65 R18 all-terrain tires. The Defender V8 Edition is limited to only 150 units and will be available to order later this year. Learn more at Land Rover.
