Land Rover fans all know the prestige of the Camel Trophy, which is an off-road competition that has been going on for two decades since 1980. Today, Land Rover Classic Edition commemorates the spirit of the Camel Trophy with a limited-edition Defender Works V8. The trophy includes a special competition held at the Land Rover UK testing ground.
The Defender Works V8 Trophy is based on the 2012-2016 Defender Works V8 redesigned by Land Rover Classic. Its 5.0 V8 can provide 399 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. These adventurous defenders are painted in the unique Eastnor Yellow paint, including front winches, multi-point expedition cages, raised air intakes, and other off-road equipment. These add-ons are not just for display, because every purchaser of one of the defenders has an exclusive opportunity to participate in the first-ever Land Rover trophy competition to be held later this year. The three-day game was played in Eastnor Castle, England, which is the long-term proving ground for Land Rover. Buyers will drive their new Defenders for the first time when facing a series of challenges inspired by the Camel Trophy and other previous Land Rover competitions. Currently, you can purchase the “Land Rover Defender V8 Trophy” with a starting price of approximately US$270,000. Click here for more details.
