New Land Rover Defender V8 is Coming Soon
Secure your production slot now at Archibalds Land Rover.
Earlier this year, Land Rover unveiled their highly anticipated new Defender V8. Taking the reigns as a flagship model for the marque, the 386kW powerhouse is now faster and more capable than we have ever seen before. With specifications now available in New Zealand, Archibalds are proud to bring the 2022 Defender V8 to the market.
Kitted with Land Rover’s iconic 5.0L supercharged V8 engine and eight-speed automatic gearbox, the new Defender reaches 100km/h in just 5.2 seconds, topping speeds at 240km/h.
With the extra grunt heading to all four wheels, Land Rover has added larger anti-rolls bars to the mix, as well as tuning the dampers. An active electronic rear diff and updated terrain response system allows drivers to “exploit the more dynamic character and handling balance” of the new Defender V8.
Behind the wheel, drivers will indulge in the usual Defender luxuries of a 360° Parking Aid, 3D Surround Camera and adaptive cruise control; while the passengers will benefit from a sliding panoramic roof, 14-way heated seats and get interactive with Apple CarPlay®.
On the exterior, you’ll be able to spot the new Defender V8 from a mile away with Xenon Blue painted brake calipers, quad exhausts and bespoke badging. The V8 model will be exclusively available in Carpathian Grey, Yulong White and Santorini Black. Each colour will be matched with a black roof.
The Defender V8 will begin production later this year, releasing in both the 90 and 110 wheelbases. Indicative pricing starts at $235,000 and $240,000 respectively. For more information or to request a call-back from our trained Land Rover sales specialists, register your interest below.
