The Land Rover Defender SUV has a special version, made in the style of the famous Camel Trophy racing cars.
Land Rover has unveiled a special version of the new generation Defender SUV called the Trophy Edition. Designed specifically for the American market, the vehicle features the iconic Camel Trophy-styled paintwork and retro door badge and long-distance off-road equipment.
The new version of Defender differs from the standard car by the presence of an expeditionary roof rack with a folding ladder, additional steel protection for bumpers and engine crankcase, off-road tires and mud flaps, as well as a winch installation kit, which is optional.
In addition, the equipment of the Defender Trophy Edition includes air suspension, a towing hitch, a rear-view camera that displays an image on the interior mirror, as well as the Pivi Pro infotainment complex with an 11.4-inch touchscreen display.
The Trophy Edition is based on the 110 P400 X-Dynamic SE. This means the SUV is powered by a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder petrol engine that develops 400 hp. and 550 Nm of torque. The engine works in conjunction with an 8-speed “automatic” ZF, four-wheel drive with a 2-speed transfer case.
A total of 220 of these cars will be produced, prices for which in the United States start at $ 90,000. The first 90 buyers of the Defender Trophy Edition will be invited to take part in an off-road race that Land Rover is organizing near the Biltmore estate in Asheville, North Carolina.
This is not the first time the British automaker has organized such themed events. So, in early 2021, Land Rover released a Trophy version of the original Defender worth $ 270,000. The car buyers were invited to England and took part in a three-day racing competition on the grounds of Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire.
