The new Land Rover Defender 90 V8 will cost you R44,687 per month if you buy the SUV using a vehicle finance plan.
The Defender V8 range recently went on sale in South Africa at a starting price of R2,386,900 for the Defender 90 V8.
The Defender V8 range comprises four models in total – including the longer-wheelbase Defender 110 V8, as well as both body styles in a Carpathian Edition specification.
The latter goes all the way up to a starting price of R2,555,900.
All derivatives are fitted with a thunderous 5.0-litre, supercharged, V8 engine generating 386kW and 625Nm.
Paired to a sophisticated eight-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel-drive system, the setup allows the shorter version of the new Defenders to reach 100km/h in 5.2 seconds, while the larger one gets there in 5.4 seconds.
Both can reach a 240km/h top speed, too, while off-road abilities remain market-leading thanks to bespoke suspension, electronic differentials, and a Terrain Response off-road programme.
The Carpathian Editions then take it a step further in terms of styling and looks, with these versions set apart by a Narvik Black roof, bonnet, and tail door; exclusive badging; Satin Black towing eyes; blue brake callipers; and a recyclable satin protective film wrap.
To calculate how much you will pay per month in instalments when purchasing a Land Rover Defender V8 using a finance plan, we can use the below formula.
Placed into the formula is the Defender 90 V8’s starting price of R2,386,900.
- Vehicle Price – R2,386,900
- Payment Term – 60 terms (5 years)
- Interest – 9%
- Deposit – 10%
- Balloon – No balloon payment
- Extras – No optional extras
The result is a monthly finance payment of R44,687.
The total amount of interest a buyer will pay over the duration of the agreement is R531,825.
We can also work out what the top-end Defender 110 V8 Carpathian Edition will cost per month by adding its starting price into the same equation.
This SUV will cost buyers R47,845 per month, with the total interest amount coming in at R569,166.
