Land Rover has unveiled the unique Rugby World Cup 2015 Defender based on the 110 Station Wagon model.
Created to transport the Webb Ellis Cup on the 100-day Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour across the UK and Ireland, the vehicle was designed by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division. It has been developed to “safely and securely display" the Webb Ellis Cup during the tour.
Powered by a 2.2-liter diesel engine, mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the all-terrain vehicle features a front winch, aluminium sump guard, side and rear steps, modified raised air intake and expedition rack.
The Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour kicks off on June 10 and will finish on September 18 at the Rugby World Cup 2015 Opening Ceremony at Twickenham Stadium.
