Land Rover Classic Reveals Defender Works V8 Trophy II

Land Rover Classic has launched 25 exclusive expedition-inspired Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy II vehicles and experiences to honour its global off-roading and exploration heritage. Each vehicle has a unique camouflage representing 23 locations the legendary 4×4 has tackled over 70 years of adventuring history, including places from The Camel Trophy, The First Overland, and the G4 Challenge. The design also features a number of hidden Land Rovers and their iconic shape in silhouette for owners to identify: Can you find them all? As well as the opportunity to purchase a unique collectable vehicle, customers are invited to take part in the second exclusive three-day Land Rover Trophy competition. Customers will receive guidance from experts to compete in a series of points-based off-road challenges, inspired by Land Rover’s famous global adventures. After three days of competition, one team will walk away with a grand prize. The unique camouflaged Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy models that honour Land Rover’s all-terrain heritage will be created using Defender models from 2012-2016, stripped and rebuilt by hand to exacting standards and improved high specifications, developed exclusively by our dedicated team at Land Rover Classic. Powered by Land Rover’s 5.0-litre V8 petrol powertrain, producing 405PS and 515Nm of torque, the limited-edition features an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. Each model undergoes a comprehensive rebuild with uprated suspension, steering enhancements and uprated brakes. It will be offered as a 90 and 110 Station Wagon bodies as well as a 110 Double Cab Pick-Up for the first time on a Trophy model. In the production run of 25, Land Rover Classic will create only 5 Double Cab Pick-ups, with the remaining 20 vehicles split between 90 and 110 Station Wagon body styles equally. The exterior features a distinctive black and white theme, with a unique camouflage developed with the design team at Land Rover Special Vehicles. The main body is finished in Fuji White with a contrasting Narvik Black roof and Gloss Black exterior elements, down to minute details including rivets, screws and vents. Gloss Black 18-inch Sawtooth alloy wheels complement the theme. Find out more
