Barring any further, unexpected delays, the latest installment in the James Bond saga, No Time To Die is set to make its theater debut on October 8th. So, now that we may finally get to see the film, Land Rover has decided to celebrate in the best way possible: with an exclusive, 007-inspired Defender.

Created by the brand’s in-house bespoke service — the SVO department — the ‘Bond Edition’ comes based on the four-door Defender 110. Under the hood, it hides the model’s all-new supercharged 5.0L V8 engine, a snarling 518hp brute that makes for the most powerful production Defender to date. Around the outside, it comes with a number of distinctive visual upgrades, including a set of 22-inch gloss black wheels, Xenon Blue front brake calipers, and a slew of shadowy finishes — like skid pans and wheel arches — from the ‘Extended Black Pack.’ Of course, because it’s a Bond car, it features its fair share of 00 accouterments, with a unique rear badge, a puddle lamp, as well as some illuminated treadplates and a touchscreen animation. Limited to just 300 models, you can order one now starting at $114,600.

Purchase: $114,600+
