Land Rover SV Bespoke has created a new Land Rover Defender V8 Bond Edition to celebrate the long delayed release of No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond film and Daniel Craig’s final outing as the legendary super-spy.
Available to order as a Defender 90 or 110, and inspired by the specification of the Defenders that appear in the movie, the Defender V8 Bond Edition features an Extended Black Pack with 22-inch Gloss Black alloy wheels, signature Xenon Blue front brake calipers and a ‘Defender 007’ rear badge.
Additional Bondian touches extend to the interior, with illuminated Defender 007 treadplates and a specially developed start-up animation for the intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment system touchscreen, that signals Land Rover’s 38-year partnership with the James Bond franchise. At night, owners will also be treated unique ‘007’ puddle lamp graphics.
Exclusively available to just 300 buyers globally, the Defender V8 Bond Edition’s interior features laser etching confirming that it is ‘one of 300’ and the SV Bespoke logo.
The UK will receive just 15 Bond V8 Edition vehicles; five Defender 90 and 10 Defender 110 body styles. Each is commissioned by the vehicle personalisation experts at SV Bespoke in the UK.

Defenders are at the heart of the action in No Time To Die, alongside two Range Rover Sport SVRs. A Range Rover Classic and Land Rover Series III are also in the movie.
Based on the recently launched Defender V8, the Bond Edition is powered by a 5.0-litre 525PS supercharged petrol engine, which produces 525PS, 625Nm of torque and drives through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Defender V8 90 accelerates from 0-60mph in just 4.9 seconds with a top speed of 149mph.
No Time To Die is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his fifth and final film as 007. The film will be released in cinemas from September 30 2021 in the UK through Universal Pictures International, and in the US on October 8 2021, from MGM.

Miraculously smaller than the sum of its parts, The 355 is a patchwork quilt of frenetic action sequences, bound together with a largely nonsensical plot. Clearly this glossy romp is meant to ape Bond and Bourne. A protracted setup involves the sale of some sort of ultra-technical macguffin that allows the user to hack anyContinue Reading
