Land Rover is throwing down the gauntlet with the 2025 Defender OCTA, a behemoth of a vehicle that’s primed to take on the esteemed Mercedes-Benz G-wagen.

This top-of-the-line variant is a powerhouse of performance, luxury, and exclusivity, with a price tag to match – a staggering $153,475. Under the hood, a formidable twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine, courtesy of BMW, roars to life, churning out a whopping 626 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque.

With a top speed of 155 mph and a 0-60 mph sprint in just 3.8 seconds, the OCTA is the ultimate driving machine. But it’s not just about raw power – the OCTA is also a masterclass in off-road prowess, with a slew of upgrades designed to tackle even the most treacherous terrain.

A generous 1.1 inches of extra ground clearance, a wider track, and beefy wheel-and-tire packages up to 22 inches ensure that this beast can conquer anything in its path. And with a specialized OCTA drive mode and off-road-focused launch control, drivers can tap into the vehicle’s full potential with ease.

Inside, the OCTA is a sumptuous oasis, with sportier seats wrapped in premium materials like semi-aniline leather or durable textiles. Embedded speakers and a vibrating function add an extra layer of sensory excitement, making every drive a truly immersive experience.

And with only 300 units available initially, the OCTA is poised to be a rare and coveted gem, offering an exclusive driving experience for the select few who are lucky enough to own it.
