A Camel Trophy tribute livery was finally painted on the new Defender by Land Rover.

In the spring of 2004 my dad purchased a gently used Volvo 850 wagon from a Land Rover dealership, and the manager of the dealership gave me a bunch of swag because I was already such a car-addicted kid.

 I recently received a VHS tape from my sister, containing two parts: a video owner's manual and a documentary on the Camel Trophy, the rugged off-road competition that ran from 1980 to 2000, and almost exclusively featured Land Rovers in tan liveries.

That tape is literally something I watched several times a day, to the point where my parents had to hide the keys to their cars because I was convinced I knew how to drive. Even when we were on hikes in the woods, I would pretend I was a Land Rover. Camel Trophy documentaries have always been my favorite part of the Camel Trophy program, and as an adult I've watched docs from previous years on YouTube. 

In the 2000s, the G4 Challenge replaced the Camel Trophy, and a few special edition production cars were made. However, none can match the iconic beige Camel trucks. Having just experienced the reborn Defender from Land Rover in 2019, I've been anxiously awaiting a special edition inspired by the Camel Trophy. Luckily, I no longer have to wait any longer, as Land Rover released its new Defender Trophy Edition exclusively for the US this week.

Camel Trophy isn't explicitly mentioned by Land Rover - tobacco sponsors aren't exactly trendy anymore - but it's clearly what this new model is inspired by. It is a four-door version of the Defender 110 in the X-Dynamic SE trim level, based on the P400 six-cylinder version. It gets a special wrap with that glorious heritage beige color and lots of black accents along with the extended black trim package. Its front doors are adorned with trophy logos.

Land Rover's fancy surround-view off-road camera system, a cold weather package and air suspension are included as standard features on the Trophy to complement the Defender's Off-Road and Advanced Off-Road Capability packages. A deployable side-mounted ladder is provided on the expedition roof rack, and a brushguard with an integrated winch is on the front. Mud flaps are also included, as are a front skid plate, an integrated air compressor, and rubber floor mats.

Trophy Editions are limited to 220 units, with a starting price of $91,150 including destination, and will both be eligible for Land Rover's new US Trophy Competition. As many as 90 two-person teams will compete in a range of on- and off-road challenges at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, during this one-day event in October 2021. In early 2022, Land Rover will host a tournament at Eastnor Castle in the UK to determine the winner of the competition. Coaching will be available for all teams during the event.

I would appreciate Land Rover allowing me to come and watch, at the very least. Though I don't guarantee I won't be running through the mud making V8 noises like I used to when I was a kid.
