The new Defender OCTA is equipped with a powerful 437 kW 4.4-litre twin turbo mild-hybrid V8 engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This makes it the strongest and most extreme Defender ever made. It can produce 635hp and 750Nm of torque (which can go up to 800Nm with Dynamic Launch Mode) and is designed to excel on any terrain. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4 seconds and offers peak torque from as low as 1800 rpm up to nearly 6000 rpm, ensuring smooth and powerful performance in all driving conditions.

The name ‘Defender OCTA’ draws inspiration from the world’s toughest and most coveted mineral, the diamond, known for its strength and distinctive octahedral shape. This special edition introduces hydraulically-interlined 6D Dynamics suspension technology to the Defender lineup for the first time.
