In celebration of its deep-rooted heritage in the Camel Trophy Competition, Land Rover is now offering a special edition of its 2023 Defender painted in the off-road race’s iconic yellow tone. Aside from just a new paint job, the 4×4 also receives a series of upgrade packages to give it a performance boost when it comes to tackling the harsh terrains the Trophy series is known for.
The base vehicle uses the 2023 Defender 90 P400 X-Dynamic SE and comes carrying a tow hitch receiver, an Extended Black Exterior Pack, an Air Suspension Pack, a Cold Climate Pack, an Off-Road Pack, and an Advanced Off-Road Capability Pack. You’ll also find a special expedition roof rack paired with a deployable ladder, mud flaps, rubber mats, an electronic winch and an integrated air compressor.
“The Defender Trophy Edition continues to embrace the spirit of adventure while honoring Land Rover’s rich and iconic heritage,” said CEO and president Joe Eberhardt. “We look forward to welcoming our Defender Trophy Edition customers to put these vehicles to the test at the exclusive adventure competition while experiencing the breadth of capabilities inherent to the Defender.”
For those interested, the Land Rover 2022 Defender Trophy Edition will go for $95,000 USD and will include an entry for two people into the Defender Trophy Competition at the company’s Land Rover Experience Center in Manchester, Vermont. You can learn more over on the automaker’s website.
