2022 Land Rover Defender V8 Bond Edition Looks Bodacious In Black
It’s been a long time coming, but barring COVID-related delays, the 25th James Bond film No Time To Die will finally reach theaters across the pond on September 30. When it does, you can expect to see Bond in multiple Aston Martins but Land Rover will also grace the big screen. And to be sure you remember the occasion, a special-edition Defender V8 will be available to a handful of buyers.
Specifically, Land Rover calls this the Defender V8 Bond Edition. Sadly you won’t get optional extras like machine guns or ejector seats, primarily because such things are supremely illegal but also because the Defender doesn’t appear to be one of Bond’s cars. If the various No Time To Die trailers are any indication, the on-screen Defender is one of many Land Rovers driven by various baddies. It certainly wears the proper shade of baddie black, complete with black 22-inch wheels. It also receives special Defender 007 badging, a 007 splash screen for the infotainment system, and 007 puddle lamps.
