The 2022 Land Rover Defender 90 V8 is an angry mountain goat

I already know I love the Land Rover Defender, but that ratchets up a bit when you swap in V8 power. This is the Defender 90 V8 and there’s a big-ole 5.0-liter V8 between the front fenders. It’s supercharged and makes 518 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque. And it puts all that power to great use out on the trails… despite being shod with fairly useless wheels and tires.

[Disclaimer: Land Rover tossed me the keys to the Defender and included a tank of fuel.]
