BEST OF BRITISH: Land Rover Defender Works V8 2019 Review

Recommended Posts


Too frantic, too furious

"Drive the Land Rover Defender," they said. "It'll be fun," they said.

Sounds like a jolly idea, I thought. It fits perfectly with our Best of British feature series. Why not?


Nek minute I'm bombing down impossibly narrow country roads at warp speed in a near-300kW V8-powered off-roader, with centuries-old stone walls and verdant shrubbery flashing past as a mottled grey on green blur.

As the 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 revs fervently past 4400rpm -- sucking in ever more oxygen to blend with precise amounts of high-octane petroleum inside each of its eight-cylinders – my mind wanders momentarily from the stone walls just millimetres away from the brawny Defender's squared flanks.
