Redesigning an icon is no mean feat, yet if you were Land Rover I think you’d be pretty pleased with yourself right now. The original Defender was, and still is, a motoring icon. The instantly recognisable silhouette and the ageless styling will always look effortlessly iconic whilst remaining the perfect workhorse and ultimate go-anywhere vehicle. Thankfully, the new Defender seems to have taken the reigns and has no problem living up to the status of its predecessor. The new version not only looks at home in any terrain, but retains the chic appeal on any high street.
Starting with appearance, the modern styling retains enough retro design hints and details to instantly be recognisable as a Defender, yet with modern touches and curvier edges. The go-anywhere ability now comes with an abundance of technology thrown in to make sure it can still climb any mountain and ford any stream. To make things even more appealing, even the interior is now a place you’d actually be happy to spend long journeys and in all the comfort you’d ever need. But the pièce de resistance is what’s under the bonnet, now your Defender can come with a 525bhp 5.0 V8.
Our 2021 (71) land Rover Defender 110 V8 is the flagship Carpathian Edition, something just that little bit more special than the ‘standard’ Defender V8. Finished in Carpathian Grey premium metallic, the Carpathian edition also features factory fitted semi-matte protective film, apparently there to protect the expensive paintwork but in many ways it just adds to the designer appearance of the new car. Being the Carpathian Edition, the car also features a contrasting Narvik Black bonnet, roof and tailgate, enhancing the premium appearance even further.
As well as the exclusive paint finish and contrasting panels, the Carpathian Edition also comes with exclusive 22” Satin Grey wheels, Xenon Blue brake calipers and Satin Black exposed towing eyes. Being the flagship model it also comes with a plethora of features included as standard such as a Panoramic sunroof, Head up display, Meridian surround sound system, Matrix LED headlights, Quad exhaust system, Front centre console refrigerator compartment, Electric deployable tow bar, Homelink garage door opener, ClearSight interior mirror and much more.
Our stunning example also comes with the addition of Fixed side steps, Front and rear Classic mudflaps and a Land Rover spare wheel cover. This exceptional one owner example is offered in exceptional condition having covered just 9,850 miles since new. The car comes with remainder of a Land Rover manufacturer warranty until September 2024.
