Classic Defender Works V8 Islay Edition: 30 very exclusive units


Land Rover Classic has unveiled its first special edition Defender with a design inspired by Land Rover heritage, the Classic Defender Works V8 Islay Edition. This special edition pays tribute to the creators of the incomparable Defender legacy: the admirable Spencer Wilks, Managing Director of Rover Car Company and one of the founders of Land Rover, and the Isle of Islay in Scotland, where the Land Rover name was born . In particular, the Classic Defender Works V8 Islay Edition is inspired by the Series IIa Land Rover owned and used by Spencer Wilks, who is already part of the Land Rover Classic collection, and the Hebridean island where he holidayed . Based on the same technical specification as the Classic Defender Works V8, the Islay Edition model features a 405PS 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Both have been completely refreshed, redesigned and updated thanks to vehicles donated between 2012 and 2016. Each vehicle has been carefully designed and hand-assembled to offer an exclusive offering to the most discerning customers seeking a collectible classic Defender and completely redesigned to enjoy a truly luxurious experience. There will be only 30 Works V8 Islay Edition units, all Station Wagons, of which 17 will be the 90 short wheelbase version and 13 will be the 110 seven-seat version.

Land Rover PF The Works V8 Islay Edition features a unique detail, a side drawing that reads ‘GXC 639C’, Wilks’ Series IIa number plate, paying subtle homage to the vehicle that inspired this version of the quintessential classic Defender . Like previous editions of the Defender Works V8, the Islay Edition model features innovative enhancements such as LED headlights for increased visibility. Technical additions include extensive underbody enhancements such as upgraded suspension and braking systems for outstanding on-road performance and dynamics. Authentic Interior The interior of the Classic Defender Works V8 Islay Edition demonstrates the vehicle’s link to the Isle of Islay, the origin of Land Rover (including the birth of the Land Rover name), through carefully selected elements and exceptional attention to detail . The Defender’s premium seats, side trims, doors, headliner and dashboard are covered in premium Land Rover Windsor Ebony leather. The contours of the center console and the Classic infotainment system show details in body color, with the latter integrating innovative functions such as satellite navigation, digital terrestrial radio and Bluetooth into an original screen and dashboard. The gear lever surround of the eight-speed ZF automatic transmission is the same body colour, Heritage Grey. Land Rover PF The entire interior of the vehicle features carefully woven details that evoke the model’s relationship to the island of Islay. The shoulder areas of the seats, parts of the door panels, the center armrest cover and the hidden details under the sun visors are finished in a carefully chosen tweed finish with a pleasant tactile quality and made in the Islay Woolen Mill to create a unique connection with the place and its importance in the history of Defender. The ‘tweed’ pattern shows an earthy base that evokes local landscapes. The colors of the Land Rover Classic represent the region: blue for the Islay sea and sky, purple for the local moorland and subdued yellow for the grass and moor landscapes. In addition, the special fabric has a special pocket in the central compartment to store small items, such as a smartphone. Land Rover PF The central storage area features bespoke details that once again evoke your connection to Islay. The extendable tray with leather tabs is made from oak sourced from whiskey barrels from Kilchoman Distillery on Islay.
