A CELEBRATION OF UNPARALLELED UTILITY
Honouring the original Defender’s formidable 70-year expedition legacy and its illustrious role in the world’s most demanding all-terrain competitions, Land Rover Classic introduces Defender Works V8 Trophy.
As the definitive Classic Defender, each of these 25 meticulous conversions also includes exclusive entry into our inaugural Land Rover Trophy event – the ultimate off-road experience for a new generation of adventurers.
LIMITED EDITION. UNLIMITED ADVENTURE.
The icon’s go-anywhere spirit and overlanding heritage are typified in this highly-prized run of Defender 90 and Defender 110 examples. Each one sourced, assembled and remastered by our specialist Land Rover Classic team.
READY FOR ANYTHING
Finished in unique Eastnor Yellow paintwork that recalls some of Defender’s most adventurous moments and specified with signature features that combine an unstoppable attitude with superior craftsmanship, Defender Works V8 Trophy is truly capable of great things.
UPGRADED TO GO ANYWHERE
Featuring a 5.0 litre petrol V8 engine and eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, Defender Works V8 Trophy delivers 405Ps and 515Nm of torque. Heavy-duty 16-inch steel wheels in Eastnor Yellow are complemented with upgraded brakes, suspension, and handling kit for additional driving confidence.
The silhouette says it all. Defender Works V8 Trophy has the accessories and attributes to take on the journey of a lifetime. This includes multi-point roll cage and ladder, mud-terrain tyres, spotlights, raised-air intake, vehicle winch and under-body protection as standard.
SUPERIOR INTERIOR COMFORT
The cabin’s superbly finished surroundings feature a full Black Windsor leather interior with contrasting yellow stitching. Recaro sports seats deliver exemplary levels of comfort and control.
A beautiful analogue dashboard clock designed and crafted in collaboration with adventure watch-maker Elliot Brown is a reminder of this vehicle’s capability and exclusivity.
Embracing the authentic details of Land Rover’s epic adventure challenges, the vehicle’s door-panel ‘Trophy’ decals are complemented by its driver’s name and national flag.
LAND ROVER TROPHY EVENT: THE NEXT ADVENTURE BEGINS HERE
Across three days of exclusive off-road competition and expert one-to-one tuition, Defender Works V8 Trophy owners and co-drivers will create their own adventure stories and patina as they get acquainted with their vehicles for the first time.
Beyond the campfire camaraderie and serious driving skills, the Land Rover Trophy event marks an exciting new chapter in the enduring story of the original Defender and its adventurers.
We welcome you and your companion to 66 miles of carefully managed trails in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The terrain here is so varied and challenging that it has been used for decades as a secret test facility for every new Land Rover.

Under the guidance of experts and legendary Land Rover drivers, you and your Defender Works V8 Trophy will embark on a series of off-road challenges inspired by our famous global adventures spanning more than seven decades of Land Rover production.
After three days of competition one team will walk away with a grand prize.
With the sun setting on each day of unforgettable off-road driving, you’ll forge new friendships with like-minded enthusiasts as we welcome you back to base camp with bell-tent accommodation, roaring log fires and evening entertainment.
