Unveiling the Defender OCTA, an all-terrain hero

Get ready to embark on the next level of adventure with the highly anticipated launch of the Defender OCTA, the newest addition to the iconic British adventure brand’s lineup. Scheduled for a grand reveal on 3 July 2024, the Defender OCTA promises to redefine all-terrain performance and luxury.

Exclusive Preview Events Around the Globe

Before its global debut, Land Rover is offering an exclusive opportunity for prospective clients to get up close and personal with the Defender OCTA. A series of Defender Elements preview events will be held at private locations across the globe, including the UK, Germany, Italy, the United States, Dubai, and Japan.

These immersive events will allow attendees to reserve and configure their very own Defender OCTA, ensuring they get the exact specifications they desire. It’s a chance to experience firsthand the groundbreaking features that make the Defender OCTA the toughest, most capable, and most luxurious Defender yet.

A Journey Through Innovation

During these exclusive preview events, attendees will be taken on a curated journey that highlights the innovations behind the Defender OCTA’s extreme all-terrain performance capabilities. From its award-winning 6D Dynamics suspension technology to its rugged yet luxurious material choices, striking design enhancements, and customisable options, every aspect of the Defender OCTA will be showcased in detail.

Mark Cameron, Managing Director of Defender, expressed his excitement, saying, “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.”

Unmatched Performance and Durability

The Defender OCTA is not just about luxury; it’s also about unparalleled performance, comfort, and composure both on and off the road. To ensure it lives up to its billing as the toughest and most durable model in the Defender family, it has undergone the most rigorous testing and development programme in Defender history.

A newly released official testing and development film showcases the extreme conditions and punishing terrains that the Defender OCTA has conquered over the past three years. From high-performance handling and durability tests at Germany’s Nürburgring Nordschleife and wet asphalt trials in Ladoux, France, to ice challenges in Sweden, arduous rally raid stages at Lastours, France, sand deserts in Dubai, and Moab rock crawls in Utah, USA – the Defender OCTA has proven its mettle time and again.

Limited Availability in South Africa

For those in South Africa eager to be among the first to own this high-performance all-terrain hero, there’s good news – a limited number of Defender OCTAs will be available in the country. Prospective clients are encouraged to contact their nearest Defender retailer as soon as possible to secure their spot.
