Despite ending the productions of its Defender series, Land Rover recently revealed a 70th anniversary old school excursion model.

Limited to 150 units, the 70th anniversary Defender includes a 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol V8 engine making it the most powerful and fastest model of the now discontinued series. Clocking a top speed of 106mph and a 0-60mph acceleration in 5.6 seconds, the limited edition Defender is sure to make it to the top of any Land Rover enthusiast’s wishlist.

Available in eight standard body colors and two satin finishes, the 70th anniversary Defender comes kitted with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, 18-inch diamond-turned Sawtooth alloy wheels and all-terrain tires. While Windsor Leather interior trim accents the dashboard, door panels, headlining and Recaro sports seats found in the interior of the car.

Priced at £150,000 GBP (approximately $207,000 USD), the limited edition 70th anniversary V8-powered Land Rover Defender is set to release later this year. For more information on the model head over to Land Rover.
