Land Rover Unveils the New Defender OCTA: A Pinnacle of Power, Performance, and Luxury

All OCTA models feature a contrasting gloss Narvik Black roof and tailgate, adding a touch of sophistication. For those seeking a unique aesthetic touch, Land Rover offers an optional Matte Protective Film that not only safeguards the body in harsh environments but also accentuates the OCTA’s distinctive silhouette.

Land Rover has redefined the boundaries of off-road capability and luxury with the introduction of the New Defender OCTA. This bold new addition to the Defender family isn’t just the most powerful and extreme Defender ever created; it’s a testament to cutting-edge engineering and a celebration of unparalleled adventure.

Unleashing the Beast: Power and Performance

The heart of the Defender OCTA lies in its formidable 4.4-litre Twin Turbo mild-hybrid V8 engine. This powerhouse generates a staggering 635PS and up to 750Nm of torque, propelling the OCTA from 0-60mph in a mere 3.8 seconds. The engine seamlessly integrates with an eight-speed automatic transmission, ensuring smooth power delivery and exceptional responsiveness in any driving scenario.

Beyond Capability: Innovation Redefines Off-Road Prowess

Land Rover hasn’t simply bolted on a powerful engine; the OCTA boasts a comprehensively reworked chassis for unrivalled off-road dominance. The groundbreaking 6D Dynamics suspension system, a first for Defender, elevates handling and terrain articulation to unprecedented levels. This innovative technology ensures exceptional on-road dynamics without compromising off-road prowess.

Built to Conquer Any Terrain

The OCTA sits 28mm higher and boasts a wider stance compared to its siblings, translating to superior ground clearance and stability. To tackle even the most challenging landscapes, the OCTA features a range of robust upgrades:

  • Extended Wheel Arches: Accommodating the largest tyres ever fitted to a production Defender (33-inch diameter), these arches provide optimal clearance and enhance the vehicle’s imposing presence.
  • Off-road Optimized Front Bodywork: Redesigned for improved under-bonnet airflow, the front section ensures optimal engine cooling during demanding off-road excursions.
  • Unique Grille Designs: Tailored for increased airflow, these grilles contribute to efficient engine performance.
  • Tough Underbody Protection: An aluminium alloy front under shield and exposed recovery points provide peace of mind when traversing treacherous terrains.
  • Advanced All-Terrain Tires: Developed specifically for the OCTA, these Goodyear tyres offer exceptional grip and durability on even the most challenging surfaces.

A Symphony of Design and Functionality

The OCTA’s exterior design exudes a sense of bold confidence, reflecting its immense capability. The available colour palette includes two exclusive new finishes: Petra Copper and Faroe Green. All OCTA models feature a contrasting gloss Narvik Black roof and tailgate, adding a touch of sophistication. For those seeking a unique aesthetic touch, Land Rover offers an optional Matte Protective Film that not only safeguards the body in harsh environments but also accentuates the OCTA’s distinctive silhouette.

Luxury Redefined for the Adventurous Soul

Stepping inside the OCTA reveals a curated and luxurious haven designed for comfort and functionality. Two highly durable UltrafabricsTM PU options, significantly lighter than traditional leather, offer a sophisticated yet practical seating solution. The standard interior on the OCTA Edition One features a striking duo-tone Khaki and Ebony combination with a seamless knit textile finish. For a touch of traditional luxury, a new Burnt Sienna semi-aniline leather with KvadratTM textile trim is also available. The OCTA offers further personalisation options, allowing you to tailor the interior to your preferences.

A Seat That Feels the Music

Land Rover has taken the in-car entertainment experience to a whole new level with the introduction of Body and Soul Seat audio technology in the Defender OCTA. This unique system, developed in collaboration with music industry experts, allows the driver and front passenger to not just hear, but also feel the music. Additionally, six wellness programs are available, catering to your need for relaxation or cognitive stimulation during long journeys.

The Ultimate All-Terrain Hero Arrives

The New Defender OCTA is more than just a vehicle; it’s a statement of capability, luxury, and innovation. It’s a testament to Land Rover’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of off-road exploration and a companion for those who crave adventure without compromise. Prepare to witness the OCTA’s dynamic debut at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
