Earlier this year Land Rover Classic announced the Defender Works V8 Trophy, a limited edition of 25 re-engineered Defender Works V8 vehicles. Finished in a unique Eastnor Yellow paint color and featuring a 5.0-liter V8 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.
The Defender Trophy Edition evokes the spirit of adventure with an array of off-road accessories and special features created for the ultimate Land Rover enthusiast. We’re looking forward to putting on a memorable adventure competition of our Defender Trophy Edition customers that will not only put these vehicles to the test but will also create a special shared experience honouring the rich heritage of the Land Rover brand.
