He is Britain’s most famous spy. His wits and suaveness have made him become one of the most famous character on screen: James Bond! Naturally, an English agent drives a British car. But what to do if the terrain gets too challenging for his iconic Aston Martin DB5? Well, 007 opts for the Land Rover Defender. For the latest movie, No Time to Die, Land Rover has created a Defender V8 Bond Limited Edition. Let’s check it out!
Let’s talks Specs
A roaring 525hp V8, more than 600nm of torque and a full black livery. That’s the Defender V8 Bond Limited Edition! It was created to celebrate the collaboration between Land Rover and the iconic 007 franchise. This very exclusive vehicle will be limited to only 300 models. And you guessed it, they are coming straight from SV Bespoke, the customization expert of the brand.
So, what’s new? Well, this version, available as 90 or 110 version, comes standard with the full-black pack and 22-inch wheels equipped with blue brake callipers. In the interior, the owner will be delighted to find custom-made door sills featuring the 007 logo. Matching infotainment animations are available too.
In terms of performance, the V8 delivers a top speed of 240km/h and will do 0 to 100 in 5.1 seconds. That’s quite respectable for a vehicle manufactured primarily for challenging terrain.
Emotions in the Defender V8 Bond Limited Edition?
Throwing around numbers is good and all, but we all know that cars are about emotions. This one has plenty to offer! Being a manufacturer of premium vehicles, Land Rover added a whole lot of luxury features into the Defender V8 Bond Limited Edition. Among them are leather seats and the big infotainment display.
Powered by the strong V8 engine, the vehicle can accomplish almost everything a super spy could want for with little effort. No matter if it’s cruising on a Scottish road to Skyfall or descending mountains on off-road tracks. The four-wheel drive will assure good stability and provides assurance to never end up stuck.
So, should you get the new Defender V8 Bond Limited Edition? Considering its heritage, reliability and cool looks, you absolutely should. The bad news is, that all models are already sold out! Now it’s time for a Martini shaken, not stirred, to drown that disappointment!
