Here’s the perfect Land Rover for the people who think the British brand gets a little bit too much attention on Expedition Portal.

If you’re a Land Rover enthusiast—Skyfall, the latest James Bond film—is jam-packed with plenty of Rover action, it’s a must see for anyone who bleeds green. On the other hand, if you’re not the biggest fan of Land Rover—you still need to watch Skyfall, but do so with a friend who is enthusiastic about Land Rovers so you’ll be able to laugh as they’re crying about the seemingly countless number Defender models being destroyed in front of their eyes. To add insult to injury, you can now purchase your friend one of the Defender 110 Double Cab Pick-Ups destroyed in the making of the film—it will only set you back around $85,000. Just leave it in his front yard with a note that says: “I hate you this much” …be sure to include a smiley face so he knows that it’s all in good fun.

The 2011 Double Cabs are outfitted with the nearly-new Puma engine along with an automatic transmission, uprated suspension, and an upgraded intercooler and exhaust to get a little bit more power for those chase scenes.

They’re being sold in the United States for show and display only and can’t be registered—if you’re going to have a 2011 Defender in the USA, you might as well have a famous one, because neither can get registered.

Thanks to Marcos for tipping us off!
