Land Rover North America says it is going to produce a limited-production Defender Trophy Edition inspired by the Land Rover Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy. The Trophy Edition is based on the 2022 Defender 110 P400 X-Dynamic SE, and gets a vehicle wrap inspired by the Defender Works V8 Trophy, a Black Exterior Pack, air suspension, cold climate package, off-road package, as well as an advanced off-road package, a tow hitch receiver, and ClearSight RearView (a wide-angle camera view).
Clearly this baby is designed to tackle some tough off-road challenges. In fact, there is some more all-terrain equipment including an expedition roof rack, front undershield, a deployable ladder, a winch installation kit, mud flaps, integrated air compressor, and deep sided and loadspace rubber mats.
The 220 Defender Trophy Editions are being sold exclusively in the US, and each comes with a two-person entry to a one-day off-road adventure in the Land Rover US Trophy Competition. Up to 90 teams (six waves of 15 teams maximum on a first-come, first-served basis) will compete at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, starting on October 11, 2021. Competitors will face several on- and off-road challenges, including physical and team building obstacles. One-on-one coaching will be provided, giving customers a unique opportunity to hone their extreme driving techniques and skills in their own vehicle before putting their training to the test.
Judges will determine the overall winning team, and the victors will go on to compete at the Land Rover Trophy Competition at Eastnor Castle in the UK, what the automaker calls its spiritual home for testing and development. The UK competition is happening early next year. The registration deadline for the off-road event is September 24, 2021.
“We’re looking forward to putting on a memorable adventure competition for our Defender Trophy Edition customers that will not only put these vehicles to the test but will also create a special shared experience honoring the rich heritage of the Land Rover brand,” said Jaguar Land Rover North America boss Joe Eberhardt.
The trucks go on sale in August starting at $90,000.
