They built it specially for the film. It had the Buick derived V8 and auto transmission out of a Range Rover. They sold special editions based on it at the time but they where just TD5 with a bit of extra bodywork.

"Buick derived V8"

That would be the Rover V8 then.

That’s the one.

Not to be confused with BMW and Jaguar V8’s that Land Rover have used since.

Really, a Rover/Buick V8! Ha! What is the performance specifications for that V8?

Oh well, I still love this Defender.

Nigel, you wanted to know about the V8, here goes.

In the mid 1960's Rover bought the design for the recently discarded Buick all alloy 215 V8 (3528cc) used in several Buick and Olds vehicles. It was thoroughly 'Roverised' for British use, which meant lots of detail changes to suit British production methods and British drivers. The most visible change was the carburettors. Instead of the 2 or 4 barrel single it twin downdraft carbs used by Buick (or the single barrel used on the turbocharged Olds version), Rover fitted twin SU HS6 (1.75") sidedraft carbs. The final engine ran a compression ratio of 10.5:1 and produced about 175bhp and was fitted to the P5B and P6B saloon cars from 1968. In 1970 it appeared in the Range Rover, but with a lower compression ratio (8.25:1 I think) and only produced about 135bhp. In the late 1970s a restriced version of this engine was fitted to the Series 3 Land Rover with a restyled front end and permanent 4 wheel drive (a first for a utility model Land Rover) to create the Stage 1 V8 Land Rover. These engines produced just 95bhp.

The Range Rover version slowly evolved until the early 1980's when it was given emmission controls for he UK market. These engines had a higher compression ratio (9.35:1) and an exhaust air induction system, but used a completely new cam profile. the old engine produced its 135bhp at 5000rpm, whereas these new engines produced 125bhp at 4000rpm and would not rev much above that. When the coil sprung One-Ten was launced it also got this version of the engine, as did the Ninety that followed, and they used that engine until it was discontinued in 1990. Meanwhile, the Range Rover version gained fuel injection to push the power back up to 167bhp at 5000rpm, before being stretched in 1990 to 3.9 litres (3497cc) for the Range Rover, whilst the original 3.5 litre version (with carbs or injection) was used in the new Discovery before being replaced later by the new 3.9. A 200bhp 4.2 litre version was also built for the new long wheelbase Range Rover LSE. When the second generation Range Rover was launched it gained a 'new' 4 litre engine (actually a redesigned 3.9 with a cross bolted block) and an enlarged 4.6 litre engine. The Discovery also gained the new 4 litre in place of the almost identical 3.9. The only Defender to get the V8 (and in fact the last one) was the 50th anniversary special edition from 1998 which used the 4 litre with an automatic gearbox (making it the only factory built automatic Defender) and a special plate listing its number in the very limited production run. The final change came towards the end of the 2nd generation Range Rover when the inlet manifold was redesigned, and it finally ceased production when the second generation Discovery was replaced by the Discovery 3 (also known as LR3).

For reference, the BMW V8 was only ever fitted to the earlier third generation Range Rover. The Discovery 3 (LR3) and Range Rover sport used the Jaguar AJV8 right from the start, and the Range Rover got it as soon as they were able to redesign the front end of the car to accept it.

I've seen this particular Land Rover up close and know a little about it. It was built by Land Rover specifically for the film and is based on a Defender 110 Hi-Cap (High Capacity Pick Up or HCPU) that has been heavily modified with a custom dashboard, roll cage, and off road style kit for decoration. It is powered by a 3.9 litre V8 running twin SU carburettors (the only one ever built by Land Rover with carbs), and has minimal silencing. If you're a Land Rover or a V8 fan its worth watching the film for the 30 seconds or so this Land Rover appears just to listen to the engine!

The car's plate (visible in the garage scenes) is T711ROF, which is registered as a 1999 Range Rover.
