Land Rover Classic is building 25 adventure-ready Defender Works V8 Trophy vehicles in 2021, paying tribute to the iconic 4×4’s enduring expedition legacy. This formidable expedition legacy is of the original Defender with a limited production run of adventure-ready Defender Works V8 Trophy vehicles for an exclusive competition at Eastnor Castle in 2021.
Based on the re-engineered 2012-2016 Defender Works V8 specification developed by Land Rover Classic, including 515 Nm 5.0 l V8 petrol powertrain, eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, and comprehensive uprated suspension, steering, and braking packages, the Trophy vehicles feature a wide range of additional upgrades specifically tailored for off-road use.
Twenty-five examples of the Defender Works V8 Trophy, in a mixture of 90 and 110 Station Wagon body designs, will be exclusively finished in a unique Eastnor Yellow paint color with matching 40.64 cm (16) steel wheels. Contrasting Narvik Black paintwork features on the wheel arches, bonnet, and rear door. The purpose-built vehicles also receive LED headlamps, a Heritage front grille, unique Land Rover Trophy badging, and event participation graphics personalized to each customer.
Prices start from Rs. 1.72 Crores for the short wheelbase 90 model – and production will be limited to just 25 examples.
