Land Rover 70th Anniversary V8 Beast

These days there is no predicting the weather. Mother nature has a way of throwing mood swings that take us anywhere from freezing rain to a tsunamis. It's only right that under these conditions, Land Rover decides to re-release the classic defender model.

Celebrating 70 years since its original release, the defender has gotten a performance upgrade, boasting a powerful 5.0- liter V8 engine. The engine puts out 400 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. This, along with the vehicles 18-inch sawtooth wheels and 8-speed automatic gearbox, allows this Land Rover to maneuver any type of terrain.

The Land rover plays the role of both beauty and beast, featuring LED headlights, windsor leather and bucket seats. It also throws a cherry on the cake by incorporating a 70th edition badge on the rear.
