Land Rover has launched the powerful Defender V8 as part of the award-winning 4x4 family. The Defender V8 joins the range of Plug-in Hybrids, and efficient Ingenium petrol and diesel powertrains.
The new 525PS Defender V8 and flagship Defender V8 Carpathian Edition provide a unique combination of performance and capability, with bespoke chassis settings delivering new levels of driver engagement and agility both on and off-road. The dynamic new models are built on decades of Land Rover V8 heritage and the New Defender is engineered to be the fastest and most engaging Defender ever.
David Hemming, Chief Product Engineer, commented “The introduction of our V8 powertrain adds a new dimension of driving engagement and off-road capability to Defender. Fast and fun to drive, it represents the pinnacle of the Defender family and is as rewarding on the road as it is capable off it. We’ve also broadened the appeal of the entire Defender line-up with new derivatives, option packs and enhanced connectivity, so there really is a Defender for everyone.”
