Ever since we bought the last of the Defender® line we’ve been busy working out how to best protect their heritage and keep their spirit going for generations to come – and the Classic Twisted is our first step into cherishing these vehicles.
The Classic Twisted celebrates what once was normal, what we could once buy, and took for granted – because it had been around forever.
We chose to unveil the Classic Twisted range to the public at Goodwood Festival of Speed as it’s a great place to get these vehicles in front of people who as passionate about the Defender® as we are.
Combining engineering excellence, a passion for performance, and unrivalled hand-detailing, it’s made up of a selection of the last ever Defender® vehicles that our team has lovingly looked after since they rolled off the production line. The Classic Twisted is a celebration of the Land Rover Defender®, true to the original, while seizing the spirit of the Anti-Ordinary.
While Twisted® is known for tailoring vehicles specifically to buyers’ specifications, this is the first time we have created a limited-edition, drive-away range that can be bought and delivered within days. Given the full Twisted® treatment, the Classic Twisted has been modified to a high specification that has all of the key Twisted® comfort, performance, and handling elements, and like all Twisted® vehicles, the modifications passionately reflect its heritage and roots.
Upgrades and modifications include progressive suspension, engine performance, chassis protection, long life fixings, the brand new ‘Classic’ Twisted® wheel, and unique billet door handles. Each vehicle features a billet aluminium ‘unique build’ plaque, which displays the name of the engineer who built it.
The Classic Twisted model mix is limited so get in early, they’re not likely to be available for long.
As with all of our vehicles, our number one ambition is to make the iconic Defender® better than it’s ever been before – and we’re exceptionally pleased with how this range has developed from concept to reality.
