Land Rover SV Bespoke has introduced the Defender V8 Bond Edition to celebrate Defender’s role in the 25th James Bond film, ‘No Time To Die.’
According to the company, the model will be exclusively available to just 300 buyers around the world. Its interior features laser etching detailing that it is ‘one of 300’ and the SV Bespoke logo.
Each vehicle is commissioned by the vehicle personalisation experts at SV Bespoke in the UK.
Based on the recently-launched Defender V8, the Bond Edition is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged petrol engine, which produces 386 kW, 625 Nm of torque and drives through an eight-speed automatic transmission. It accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 5.2 s with a top speed of 240 km/h.
Defender V8 Bond Edition features an extended black pack with 50.80 cm (20) satin dark grey wheels, signature Xenon Blue front brake calipers and a ‘Defender 007’ rear badge.
The interiors come with ‘Defender 007’ treadplates and a specially developed touchscreen startup animation for the intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment system that honours Land Rover’s long partnership with the James Bond franchise. At night, customers will also spot unique ‘007’ puddle lamp graphics, the automaker said.
Finbar McFall, Land Rover brand director, said, “The Land Rover Defender V8 Bond Edition is an exclusive take on the most powerful production Defender ever made, inspired by vehicles on-screen in No Time To Die. It represents a meeting of two great British brands and is a unique celebration of Land Rover’s 38-year association with James Bond.”
According to the company, the new model is based on the recently-launched 386 kW Defender V8 and is available in both 90 and 110 body designs.
