Half station wagon, half Pope-mobile, the 110 is the handiwork of Jaguar Land Rover’s SVO department, and features a glass rear body, which is to act as an illuminated trophy cabinet for the Webb Ellis Cup on its 100-day tour around the UK and Ireland.
The toughened glass cabinet features bespoke security, climate control (to prevent fogging) and lighting systems that are all controlled by a specially-designed app, via a tablet.
Passengers are also treated to an interior from the Defender’s Autobiography limited edition, embellished with gold and blue highlights to complement the Rugby World Cup 2015 graphics. Exterior accessories include a roof rack, winch, modified raised air intake, and sump guard.
The Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour commences on 10 June, when the vehicle will undertake to deliver the Cup to over 300 events in 100 day. It’s scheduled to arrive at Twickenham Stadium on 18 September for the opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup 2015, and then continue to ferry the cup between 13 UK stadiums until the World Cup final on 31 October.
