Ahead of the global reveal, prospective clients for the first year’s Defender OCTA allocation are invited to register for one of seven exclusive Defender Elements events in private locations around the world – from the UK, Germany and Italy in Europe, to the United States, Dubai and Japan. 

These preview events will give privileged early access to the toughest, most capable and luxurious Defender ever, enabling clients to finalise the specification of their desired Defender OCTA in a relaxed and informal environment.

A curated and immersive journey will take clients through the innovations that underpin Defender OCTA’s extreme all-terrain performance capabilities – including award-winning1 6D Dynamics suspension technology – as well as its tough luxury material choices, striking exterior and interior design enhancements, and the options available to make every adventure epic.

To ensure exclusivity, just 1,070 Defender OCTAs will be available in the UK for the first production year, making these events an unmissable opportunity.

Defender OCTA will be synonymous with mastering epic adventures in heightened luxury. That adventure starts with the Defender Elements events. Each venue and experience reflects the iconic Defender DNA in an authentic and original way and I can’t wait to welcome the first clients to begin their Defender OCTA journeys with us.

The V8 Twin Turbo mild-hybrid petrol Defender OCTA will offer an unparalleled breadth of capability, comfort and composure, whether on-road or off-road. As a result it has been subjected to the most extreme testing and development programme in Defender history. 

The official testing and development film released today showcases the range of locations and punishing terrains visited by Defender OCTA engineers over the past three years, to prove it lives up to its billing as the toughest and most durable model in the unstoppable Defender family.

Defender OCTA engineers have conducted more than 13,960 additional tests, on top of the standard Defender testing regime, spanning high-performance handling and durability at Germany’s Nürburgring Nordschleife, wet asphalt at Ladoux in France, ice in Sweden, arduous rally raid stages at Lastours in France, sand deserts in Dubai, plus Moab rock crawls in Utah, USA. Defender OCTA has also conquered every extreme trail at JLR’s legendary Eastnor test facility in the UK.
