Ever dream of starring in a James Bond movie? Sending your own car flying over streams and through the mud in 007 style? Now you can with the release of the 2022 Land Rover Defender V8 Bond Edition.
Land Rover SV Bespoke is building only 300 of this limited-edition all-black vehicle. This Defender, sans new 007 logos, will appear in the upcoming 007 film No Time To Die.
The Bond Edition Defender builds off of the recently released 518 hp 5.0L supercharged engine Defender V8, in 110 wheelbase guise only. The 8-speed automatic transmission powers bespoke 22-inch gloss black wheels.
Land Rover claims the new suspension and transmission make this Defender the “fastest and most dynamic yet.” For the Bond enthusiast, Land Rover SV Bespoke includes details like a 007 rear badge and 007 puddle lamp. It even carries the etching “one of 300” so everyone knows how rare your vehicle is.
The 25th James Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig, premiers on September 30th, 2021. The release date changed already twice due to COVID-19. The commercials promise chase scenes featuring the all-black Defender. They carry the bad guys, in a speedy, bumpy chase, with, of course, a helicopter flying overhead.
The Defender V8 Bond Editon’s design appeals to those who want a sleek, high-end vehicle, but also want off-road capability, and just a bit of 007 cool. The bad guys might actually get away from Bond one of these days with a vehicle like this. It can do 149 mph and hit 60 from a standstill in just 5.1 seconds.
