Land Rover has taken the wraps off a Rugby World Cup 2015 Defender, tasked with the mission of transporting the Webb Ellis Cup for the 100-day Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour across the UK. Based on the 110 Station Wagon model, the vehicle was designed by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division and features a trophy case in the rear. Under the hood is a 2.2-liter diesel engine, mated to a six-speed manual transmission, while prominent exterior details include a front winch, aluminum sump guard and side and rear steps. A modified raised air intake and expedition rack round out the details. The Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour kicks off on June 10 and will eventually finish on September 18 at the opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup 2015 at Twickenham Stadium.
