Inspired by the specification of the Defenders that appear in the upcoming James Bond movie called No Time To Die, Land Rover has unveiled the stealthy Defender V8 Bond Edition.
The special edition model features an Extended Black Pack with 22-inch Luna Gloss Black alloy wheels, signature Xenon Blue front brake calipers, and most importantly a ‘Defender 007’ rear badge.
Stealthy exterior and interior
The bespoke touches extend to the practical interior, with illuminated ‘Defender 007’ treadplates and a special touchscreen start-up animation that honours Land Rover’s long partnership with the James Bond franchise. At night, customers will also spot unique ‘007’ puddle lamp graphics.
Limited to just 300 buyers around the world, the Defender V8 Bond Edition’s interior features laser etching detailing that it is ‘one of 300’ and the SV Bespoke logo.
Based on the recently launched Defender V8, the Bond Edition is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged petrol engine, which produces 525PS, 625Nm of torque and drives through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Defender V8 90 accelerates from 0-60mph in just 4.9 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds) with a top speed of 149mph (240km/h).
It delivers new levels of performance and driver engagement by combining the V8 with expertly developed suspension and transmission tuning to create the fastest and most dynamically rewarding Defender yet.
With unique suspension and transmission tuning, including bespoke spring and damper rates and a new Electronic Active Rear Differential, the Defender V8 delivers more agile and engaging handling with heightened body control.
No Time To Die
The Defenders are at the heart of the action in “No Time To Die” alongside two Range Rover Sport SVRs. A Range Rover Classic and Land Rover Series III are also in the film, which will be released in cinemas around the world from September 30 2021.
No Time To Die is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his fifth and final film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007.
