Land Rover Classic is building a strictly limited production run of 25 adventure-ready Defender Works V8 Trophy vehicles in 2021, paying tribute to this iconic 4x4’s enduring expedition legacy. Each vehicle purchased grants the fortunate owner entry to an exclusive Land Rover Trophy adventure competition at Eastnor Castle, the spiritual home of Land Rover testing and development.


Each Defender Works V8 Trophy, re-engineered by Land Rover Classic, features a 298kW (405PS) 5.0 litre petrol V8 powertrain and eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, along with uprated suspension, steering and braking packages. A wide range of additional upgrades, designed to tackle the most demanding off-road endurance challenges, include front winch, multi-point expedition cage, roof rack, underbody protection, A-bar, raised air intake, LED spotlights and mud-terrain tyres.


Produced in a mixture of 90 and 110 Station Wagon body designs, each Works V8 Trophy will be exclusively finished in a unique Eastnor Yellow paint colour with matching 16-inch steel wheels, with contrasting Narvik Black paintwork on the wheel arches, bonnet and rear door. Inside, details include full black Windsor leather upholstery with Recaro sports seats, contrast yellow stitching, and a bespoke Land Rover Trophy clock face by Elliot Brown.

Dan Pink, Director, Land Rover Classic, said, “The Land Rover Defender has always been more than just a vehicle, its engineering capability and suitability for overland expedition and all-terrain competition means it’s renowned for getting away from it all. The new Land Rover Trophy will bring this to life for a new generation of adventurers.”
