After the Defender Works V8 Trophy last year, Land Rover’s Classic division is building yet another 25 units of the classic Defender. It’s called the Defender Works V8 Trophy II, and buyers will have a choice of 90, 110 and also 110 double cab pickup bodystyles, with the 90 carrying a starting price of £225,000 in the UK.
The exterior of the Defender Works V8 Trophy II features a black and white theme, complemented with expedition-inspired camouflage that features 23 locations where Land Rover has conquered challenging terrain across more than 70 years of off-roading. Other key highlights include a winch at the front; a powerful full-width LED light bar over the windshield; a rear recovery point; a rear ladder, and an external roll bar for added body protection.
The cabin too follows a similar black and white theme combined with a bespoke Elliot Brown clock on the dashboard. The Recaro sports seats are finished in black and white Windsor leather with contrast stitching.
As the name suggests, the Defender Works V8 Trophy II is powered by a 5.0-litre (4,999 cc) V8 naturally-aspirated petrol engine with 298 kW (405 metric hp) and 515 Nm (380 lb-ft) of torque, paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox with a two-speed transfer case.
