A couple of months back we had shared some information along with a video about Land Rover Classic division re-engineering and recreating special edition Defender Works V8 Trophy vehicles based on previous-gen Defenders for an off-road adventure event scheduled for later this year. Now, at Land Rover Boerne we have some good news in store for all you Defender and Camel Trophy fans in Austin and San Antonio, TX who want to see the latest L663 Defender in a Trophy Edition avatar. Keep reading this blog from Land Rover Boerne to find out what’s special in the all-new Land Rover Defender Trophy Edition.
All-new Defender Trophy Edition
Land Rover USA has officially announced The Defender Trophy Edition which is Land Rover’s first attempt at paying homage to the legendary off-road Trophy competition series. The 2021 Defender Trophy Edition is modeled on the durable Defender 110 P400 X-Dynamic SE, which is a six-cylinder mild-hybrid gasoline drivetrain, generating a peak output of 390 hp. The new Trophy Edition is inspired by the insanely expensive £195k (roughly $2,69,000) Works Trophy V8 Edition that was announced earlier this year in the U.K. and had a limited run of just 25 vehicles of the previous generation Defender. However, the new 2021 Defender Trophy Edition is not nearly as expensive as the Works Trophy and you can get one for $90,000, although it will also be a limited-run with only 220 units being offered in the U.S. So if you’re planning to get one, we suggest you hurry up!
What’s special in The Defender Trophy Edition?
The limited-production Defender Trophy Edition flaunts a special protective vehicle wrap in classic heritage yellow and extended Black Exterior Pack and continues the Defender legacy of exploring the off-beaten path. The Trophy edition also includes a host of off-road adventure equipment like expedition roof rack, front underbody protection, deployable ladder, winch kit, mud flaps, integrated air compressor, and loadspace rubber mats. It will also boast of an off-road pack and advanced off-road capability pack, featuring All-Terrain Progress Control and Terrain Response® 2.
Like the earlier Defender Works V8 Trophy, which sold out in just three days, the new Defender Trophy Edition comes with an experience package to pay homage to the famed Camel Trophy competition that was held annually between 1980 and 2000.
Special Invitation to Land Rover U.S. Trophy Competition
Not just that, buyers of the new Defender Trophy Edition will receive an exclusive two-person invite to participate in the one-day ‘Land Rover U.S. Trophy Competition’ at the famed Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC which is slated to be held in October.
The competition will be split into six waves and up to 90 teams will compete in a series of on-and off-road challenges that will put the two-person teams’ teamwork and physical skills to the test. The winning team will go on to compete at the final, ultimate adventure competition at The Land Rover Trophy Competition at Eastnor Castle in the U.K.
