Land Rover SV Bespoke welcomes the 25th James Bond movie No Time to Die due out in September with the limited edition Land Rover Defender V8 Bond Edition.
The Defender series, available in both 110 and 90 versions, is inspired by the equipment and design of the Defender in No Time to Die. The Defender V8 Bond Edition received an Extended Black Optical Package with 22-inch gloss black Luna alloy wheels, distinctive Xenon Blue front calipers, and a “Defender 007” rear badge.
There are also a number of unique details in the passenger compartment, from the illuminated ‘Defender 007’ sills to the exclusive touchscreen animations of the instinctively operated Pivi Pro entertainment system that honor the long-standing collaboration between Land Rover and the James Bond franchises. At night, the unique “007” floor lamp creates a special atmosphere.
Laser engraving in the interior of the Defender V8 Bond Edition, available in only 300 copies worldwide, announces that the car is part of the Limited Edition. One of 300 samples has already found a host in Hungary.
The interior is also decorated with the SV Bespoke logo. Special Defenders have been developed in the UK by specialists from the SV Bespoke division, which specializes in vehicle customization.
Based on the recently introduced Defender V8, the compact 5.0-liter V8 petrol engine in the Bond version sends 525 horsepower and 625 Nm of torque to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Defender V8 90 accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 240 km/h.
The model delivers a whole new level of driving performance and driving experience, thanks to the eight-cylinder petrol engine and professionally tuned chassis and transmission, which together result in the fastest and most fun Defender ever.
Equipped with a specially modified chassis (including exclusive springs and shock absorbers) and powertrain (such as the new electronic active rear differential), the Defender V8 can be driven more dynamically and pleasantly with minimal side tilt, emphasized by the distinctive V8 sound.
In the most exciting scenes in No Time to Die, it’s not just defenders that play a role: two Range Rover Sport SVRs are also on the adventure. The film, which begins on September 30, 2021, will also feature a Range Rover classic and a third Land Rover.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the “No Time to Die” star is Daniel Craig, who now plays Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 for the fifth and final time. The film will be shown in Hungarian cinemas from September 30, 2021.
