New 525hp Supercharged V8 Defender to cost a cool £100k!

Land Rover shouting about the new supercharged V8 Defender at the same time as boasting about the economy of the MHEV and PHEV engines is a bit like a pub Landlord telling you about a new Vodka which gets you very drunk, very fast but you won’t get a hangover if you drink the low-alcohol beer. It’s a very mixed message.

Here are some of the headline facts about the V8 and other developments to the lineup…

  • New 525HP supercharged engine powers fastest and most powerful production Defender ever made; 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds, 149mph top speed (Defender 90)

  • New Limited Edition Defender V8 Carpathian Edition combines the power and capability of Defender V8 with a unique combination of design elements
  • New Defender XS Edition replaces the successful First Edition and features unique exterior design enhancements and comprehensive specification
