The Land Rover Defender V8 has been finally revealed with a 525hp engine, making it the most powerful Defender ever to hit series production. With a short-wheelbase Land Rover Defender V8 does a 100kph sprint in just 5.2sec.
The new addition to the range is marked out visually by its quad-exit exhaust, grey 22-inch alloy wheels and blue front brake calipers, while a bespoke tune for the induction and exhaust systems should help to tell the V8 apart from its quieter four- and six-cylinder range-mates.
