A FLASHBACK Land Rover with a price tag of almost £200,000 is being produced by the company's Classic division targeting the most die-hard Defender devotees.

The adventure-ready Defender Works V8 Trophy will be available in both 90 and 110 body styles with the short wheelbase model priced from £195,000.

Only 25 examples will be produced and each will be finished in a special Eastnor Yellow paint - a nod to Land Rover's famous proving ground near Ledbury in Herefordshire.

Each customer for the ‘ultimate' Defender will be given the chance to enter an exclusive Land Rover Trophy adventure competition to be held at Eastnor Castle.

The Defender Works V8 Trophy is powered by a 405ps 5.0-litre petrol engine mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and comes with uprated brakes and a handling kit.

Additional all-terrain equipment includes a front winch, multi-point expedition cage, roof rack, underbody protection, an A-bar fitted to the front, a raised air intake, spotlights and mud-terrain tyres.

The interior features full black Windsor leather trim and includes Recaro sports seats with contrasting yellow stitch detailing, plus a Land Rover Trophy clock with a face by watchmakers Elliot Brown.

Dan Pink, director of 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 with getting away from it all.

"The new Land Rover Trophy will bring this to life for a new generation of adventurers."

The three-day event at Eastnor will include a variety of challenges for drivers and their vehicles who will receive one-to-one tuition from Land Rover experts to develop their extreme driving skills.

Land Rover intends to stage the event during 2021 although details are still to be finalised.

The Defender Works V8 was first produced by the Land Rover Classic team in 2018 as part of a series of run-out vehicles to mark the end of the original Defender line which was replaced by an all-new model last year.
