NEWS: Defender Works V8 To Mark Land Rover 70th

We sure hope we are this adventurous aged 70!  Bravo to Land Rover for celebrating the out-going icon that is the Defender – largely unchanged in 50 years – in serious style, as a fitting tribute to 70 years of the off-road, turned luxury marque. Meet the 405PS Defender Works V8, here to raise a fast glass of vintage V8 to 70 years of Land Rover marque. The 5.0-litre petrol V8 Defender is the most powerful and fastest ever created by Land Rover – with 0-60mph in 5.6sec (and a characteristic, hilariously low top speed, of just 106mph). It's a cast iron collector’s edition – with a limited run of up to 150 Defenders badged 70th Edition. All enquiries from prospective Defender Works V8 clients should be directed to Land Rover Classic: / +44 (0) 203 601 1255
