Land Rover Defender Trophy Edition Only For North America
The limited edition SUV is priced at US$90,000 (RM380,925)
Earlier this year in February, we saw the arrival of the Defender Works V8 Trophy, a limited-run model that pays tribute to the expedition legacy of the original Defender. Now, Land Rover has introduced a similar version based on the current Defender exclusively for the North American market.
Limited to just 220 units and based on the Defender 110 P400 X-Dynamic SE, the Defender Trophy Edition is armed to the teeth with a host of rugged features such as a tow hitch receiver, air suspension, cold climate pack as well as off-road and advanced off-road capability packs.
Also included are roof racks, a front undershield, a deployable ladder, mud flaps, and an integrated air compressor. A winch can also be installed at a dealer, although availability of this particular feature is very limited. Inside, there’s a 11.4-inch touchscreen that provides access to the ClearSight RearView system, as well as rubber mats.
Looks-wise, the Defender Trophy Edition mimics the Defender Works V8 Trophy with its black and yellow livery, which is complemented by the classic Land Rover Trophy logo on the front doors.
Every Defender Trophy Edition comes with a two-person invitation to participate in an off-road U.S. Trophy Competition at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina this coming October. The winners of this event will get the chance to prove their mettle at The Land Rover Trophy Competition at Eastnor Castle in the U.K., which is scheduled to take place next year.
Continuing the expedition legacy of the original Defender, today, Land Rover North America announced a limited production Defender Trophy Edition with an adventure competition, held at the legendary Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina included with purchase(4).
Inspired by the Land Rover Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy, a limited edition of 25 re-engineered classic Defenders, the Trophy Edition carries on the same spirit of adventure for the North American market. Based on the 22MY Defender 110 P400 X-Dynamic SE, the Defender Trophy Edition features a special vehicle wrap inspired by the Defender Works V8 Trophy, an Extended Black Exterior Pack, tow hitch receiver, ClearSight RearView(1), Air Suspension Pack, Cold Climate Pack, 11.4-inch Touchscreen, Off-road Pack, and Advanced Off-road Capability Pack.
The Defender Trophy Edition is designed to tackle some of the most demanding endurance challenges. Additional all-terrain equipment includes expedition roof rack, front undershield, deployable ladder, winch installation kit(2), mud flaps, integrated air compressor, deep sided and loadspace rubber mats.
With 220 Defender Trophy Edition vehicles sold exclusively in the U.S., each will come with an opportunity for a two-person entry to a one-day off-road adventure in the Land Rover U.S. Trophy Competition. Up to 90 teams (six waves of 15 teams maximum on a first come, first served basis) will compete at the legendary Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C. starting from October 11, 2021. Competitors will face a number of on- and off-road challenges, including physical and team building obstacles. Expert one-on-one coaching will be provided as part of the adventure, giving customers a unique opportunity to develop extreme driving techniques and skills in their own vehicle, before putting their training to the test.
The overall winning team, as determined by a judging panel, will go on to compete at The Land Rover Trophy Competition at Eastnor Castle in the U.K., the spiritual home of Land Rover testing and development, to take place early 2022.
The Defender Trophy Edition will be available this August, priced at $90,000 and can be purchased at certain Land Rover retailers in the U.S. To learn more visit, landroverusa.com/defendertrophyedition.
