The Stage One V8 is the final chapter in Twisted’s Remake History celebration. ‘Stage One’ signified the first stage of investment into the manufacturer from the UK Government to enhance the product portfolio.
The Stage One V8 comprises fifteen vehicles, ten of which will be finished in the historic Welsh Grey with canvas hoods. The other five will be sold in their individual original colours from the factory. As each vehicle is built, unique touches will be apparent and the run will not exceed 15. These vehicles have been handpicked from our original order.
As you would expect we have considerately addressed the usual areas of improvement over the standard unit including serious power from our LS3 V8 engine, refined handling, steering, braking, seating, sealing and rust protection, to make this special build Defender the driving experience it deserves. No doubt some will end up in private collections, though they are built with driving and adventure in mind.
In essence, what your feet touch will be hard as the coal taken from the British mines of the same era, what you sit upon or touch with your hands will be soft, comfortable and tactile. The interior will include a seat inspired from the age of the deluxe cab option and the exterior will exude a working class, no nonsense approach.
All of the base vehicles chosen for the Stage One V8 builds were built at JLR between the 11th and 21st January 2016, making them within the very last ever to pass through the factory. These were first registered in early 2016 following the end of production. They have been held in storage awaiting this release for almost 3 years.
All vehicles are delivery mileage, VAT qualifying and N1 commercial status. Each will be supplied with a comprehensive 24 month warranty with return to base breakdown recovery.
To reserve your piece of history, build slot and lock in your build number we require an initial deposit of £5000. This can be paid either by calling the main office number or clicking ‘add to basket’ & going through our checkout process.
We are very excited about our opportunity to Remake History with you, and will enjoy keeping you thoroughly up to date during the build process, from the moment we pick your first parts to the wax being applied to the final panel. It is a journey we will undertake together. Taking delivery of the completed vehicle will open up exclusive invites to Twisted Experiences as you will be part of our Twisted owner alumni.
There will be three further payments required between now and the completion of your vehicle.
Depending on the timing of your order and the chosen specification, build times will vary. Early orders will complete in 2019, later orders will be agreed based on demand.
£154,995 + VAT.
The balance of the first payment due within 14 days of deposit makes up 50% of the build value followed by two further payments of 25% each. Your build journey and payment schedule is highlighted below for more information. Upon receipt of your 50% payment, registration and title of the base vehicle will be transferred. Final price may vary depending on position in schedule or factors out of our control.
