Land Rover Defender 130 V8 Revealed

The Land Rover Defender 130 borrows its V8 engine from the Defender 90 and 110 models, albeit in a lower state of tune. The Defender 130 V8 petrol offers 500PS of power and 610Nm of torque. The engine transmits power to all 4 wheels via an 8-speed torque converter automatic transmission and enables this mammoth to sprint from a standstill to 100kmph in just 5.7 seconds. The Defender range could be the last Land Rover to pack the venerable 5.0L supercharged V8 engine as the newer models like the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have moved to the 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 supplied by BMW.
