Armstrong's set to bring you the latest Land Rover V8 Defender- a true British icon.

Vehicle Launches
21 July 2021

Land Rover dishes up the Defender V8 faster and hardier than ever before; and the team at Armstrong’s Land Rover have secured production, starting late this year.

With it’s power provided by the well trusted JLR 5.0- litre supercharged V8 engine, an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a top speed of 149mph, the new Land Rover Defender V8 is a beauty and a beast. Land Rover has toughened up the Defender’s chassis and suspension to handle the extra grunt and weight of the V8. That means, new larger diameter anti-roll bars, stiffer suspension bushes and bespoke spring and damper rates.

There’s also a new electronic active rear diff and a ‘Dynamic’ mode for the terrain response system that will unlock optimum performance on tarmac and loose surfaces, allowing for a little rear-end slip.

Drivers will enjoy the luxuries of a 360° Parking Aid, 3D Surround Camera and adaptive cruise control; while the whole family will benefit from the sliding panoramic roof, 14-way heated memory seats and Apple CarPlay®.

Customers have a choice of three timeless exterior colours: Carpathian Grey, Yulong White and Santorini Black; all paired with the classic roof in Narvik Black. Shadow Atlas exterior detailing completes the distinctive exterior finish of the 2021 Defender.

The iconic British country car is truly the perfect luxury SUV for the whole family, and the Duke of Edinburgh alike.
