Gear up for a new king of the off-road. Land Rover is readying the most potent Defender to ever hit the trails.

The high-performance OCTA is set to make its global debut on July 3rd, but that’s just the beginning.

This beast will then flex its muscles at the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb, happening July 11th through 14th.

Land Rover throws a surprise under the hood, opting for a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 from BMW instead of their usual engine.

While official power figures are still a secret, rumors point to a significant jump in performance over the current Defender V8.

This signals a thrilling development for off-roaders seeking a Defender that blends legendary capability with heart-pounding power.

Aimed squarely at the luxury off-road market, the Land Rover Defender OCTA throws down the gauntlet to rivals with its impressive performance.

Land Rover promises a blistering 0-60 mph time in the ballpark of 4.5 seconds, matching the mighty Mercedes-AMG G 63. An expected increase in top speed to around 155 mph further emphasizes the OCTA’s potency.

To ensure this power translates into confident handling, Land Rover has bolstered the Defender OCTA with a strengthened chassis and improved braking capabilities.
