2025 Land Rover Defender Octa

British Land Rover has introduced a new version of its Defender SUV, the Land Rover Defender Octa. It is the most powerful version of this model that will be presented for the first time at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which begins on July 11.

The car, which has been considered one of the best off-road vehicles for decades, received an improved chassis, steering system and adaptive suspension adapted to engine power, for minimal longitudinal and transverse tilting of the body, redesigned elements of the front and rear ends of the body, wider fenders, as well as 22- inch wheels and Brembo brakes. 20″ all-terrain tires (Goodyear Advance All-Terrain) are also available as an option, and it should be noted that thanks to the large clearance of the floor from the ground, the Defender can pass through water up to 100 centimeters deep.

The spacious interior, covered in leather, is equipped with contoured front seats with integrated headrests, and customers can choose from several different leather colors.

When it comes to the powertrain, the Defender Octa is powered by a 4.4-L V8 engine assisted by a mild hybrid system, with 635 hp (473 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission that sends power on both axles. This means that the previous 5.0-L V8 option with 525 hp (391 kW) is not offered.

Land Rover Defender Octa, which is considered Land Rover’s answer to the most powerful Mercedes G-Class, costs over 156,000 euros (Edition One).
