Twisted plans for Solihull's last Defenders

Twisted Automotive aims to celebrate Land Rover’s history with its plans for 80 brand-new Defenders.

The Land Rovers – the final vehicles from when the Yorkshire specialist undertook what it describes as ‘the biggest risk of its history’ by investing £7.4 million to reserve 240 of the final Defenders to roll out of Solihull – will be prepared and enhanced in batches.

Forty-four ‘Remake History’ Defenders will pay homage to Series models and will be released on 29 January 2019, exactly three years after production ceased.

Meanwhile the final 36 will be built under the ‘Make History’ banner, modifying them to a unique spec and offering them only to existing customers.

Longer term, Twisted will ‘Rework History’, carrying out restoration work and engineering improvements to high-quality pre-owned models.

‘We see our role as defending the Defender,’ says Twisted founder Charles Fawcett. ‘Everything we do is to keep the spirit of Land Rover’s rich heritage alive.’
