Land Rover Classic Pays Tribute to Its Camel Trophy Heritage With Limited Edition Defender

Land Rover Classic is celebrating its Camel Trophy heritage with a new limited-edition Defender.

Dubbed the Defender Works V8 Trophy, the special creation is based on the Defender Works V8 models produced between 2012-16, but come with a series of welcome upgrades. It’ll be available in both the company’s 90 and 110 body styles, with both carrying a hefty 5.0-liter V8 engine pushing out a staggering 400 horsepower through its automatic transmission. Its suspension system has been updated as well, alongside the steering and braking packages.

Aside from performance upgrades, the off-roader also received various changes to its aesthetics. Of course, both models will come dressed in the iconic Eastnor Yellow with Narvik Black details, with matching 16-inch wheels down low wrapped in mud-terrain tires. LED headlamps adorn the front of the vehicle by the Heritage front grille, with a roof rack installed above paired with LED spotlights, and a full black Windsor leather interior to complete the look.

Limited to just 25 units, the Land Rover Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy will start at roughly $269,880 USD. Learn more over on the automaker’s website.
