Land Rover is paying tribute to the iconic Camel Trophy off-road competition with the Classic division to assemble another 25 examples of the officially discontinued classic Defender, inspired by rally cars. According to Autocar, the price of each of them starts at 195 thousand pounds (about 20 million rubles).
The new Defenders of the previous generation will combine the strengths of the limited edition V8 Works with the refinements used on the Camel Trophy cars. SUVs will be equipped with a 5.0-liter eight-cylinder engine developing 405 hp. and 515 Nm of torque paired with an eight-band "automatic".
- A regular winch, underbody protection and off-road tires will help such Defenders to cope with off-road conditions, and an additional LED "chandelier" and an expeditionary trunk will help on long trips. The cabin will have Recaro seats, leather trim and a Land Rover Classic media system with navigation and the ability to integrate smartphones.
- The color scheme for all cars will be the same - the proprietary shade of Eastnor Yellow combined with black linings on the wheel arches and hood. Buyers will only be allowed to choose from the racing liveries that will be applied to the Defender's body. Cars will be available in both three and five-door bodies.
- All special Defenders buyers will be invited to a three-day off-road party at the British Eastnor Castle. The event will take place in the spirit of the legendary Camel Trophy raids.
Last November, the original 1992 Defender was put up for sale, which participated in the Camel Trophy as a support vehicle. The SUV changed its owner for 15,750 pounds (1.6 million rubles).
