Land Rover SV Bespoke has just revealed the Land Rover Defender V8 BOND EDITION, which is inspired by the Defenders tearing up the screen in No Time To Die.

The stealthy stunner is limited to just 300 examples worldwide and features an Extended Black Pack with 22-inch Luna Gloss Black alloy wheels, signature Xenon Blue front brake calipers, and a "Defender 007" rear badge.

Other unique elements include illuminated "Defender 007" treadplates, a specially developed touchscreen start-up animation straight out of Q-Branch, laser etching detailing that it is "one of 300," and "007" puddle lamp graphics.

It doesn't slouch on power, either, opting for a 5.0-liter supercharged engine good for 518 hp, 461 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 mph sprint of just 5.1 seconds.

Though only a lucky few will be able to get behind the wheel, we mere mortals will at least be able to (finally) see the film that inspired it, No Time To Die, when it releases on Oct. 8. It was directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective) and stars Daniel Craig in his fifth and final turn as the famed British spy. And though Defenders galore will appear in the movie, we're hearing a Range Rover Classic and Land Rover Series III are also integrated into the romp.
