The most common series vehicle still on the roads, the 14-year production of the Series III began in 1971 and ceased in 1985. Designed with ‘comfort’ in mind, the interior received a considered overhaul, with soundproofing and tinted glass among the options. Our own interpretation sees a limited run of ten builds created. This one being one of last off the line and an XS specification giving it factory air conditioning, electric front windows, heated front seats and is finished in Corris Grey metallic paint. 

As you would expect from any Twisted vehicle we have started from the ground up. The chassis has been specially coated to increase its lifespan and the handling has been dramatically improved with a full progressive suspension system giving a more controlled and predictable feel whilst delivering a supremely engaging drive. Alongside this, our 18” classic wheel finished in satin grey with BF Goodrich tyre combination provides both incredible on and off-road control but also enhances the styling in a subtle and non audacious way that only we at Twisted can.

Retaining its original 2.2l diesel engine, we have given it more power and torque taking it from around 120bhp to 170bhp; the power delivery is much smoother and you have the confidence to overtake when required. We can also fit a ULEZ EU6d conversion if required at cost to allow you to drive in London and other closely monitored cities with no worries about extra charges and knowing that your emissions are far lower than any other standard Defender.

The exterior has been enhanced with our usual attention and benefits from LED lighting to the headlights and taillights alongside our Series style Twisted double bumper with daytime running lights, giving superb visibility even on the darkest of country roads. All of the exterior fixings have been replaced with stainless bolts and the rear looks purposeful with its full width step bumper, swing away wheel carrier, colour coded crossmember and of course the all important Twisted Yorkshire plaque.

Moving inside the Defender it has been fully stripped, our unrivalled soundproofing installed and recarpeted to provide a level of refinement usually unheard of in a Defender. On top of this our Recaro heated seats are in position and offer a fantastic level of comfort. These have been trimmed in black nappa leather with red stitch and square quilt detailing. The side bolster is low enough not to restrict access yet gives great support to hips and legs. With bases that are removable to allow access to the battery and jack we believe there is no more comfortable seating option. The rear seats also having been awarded the same leather treatment meaning everyone can enjoy the drive in comfort. Along with the seats, the cubby box, door handles and elements of the dashboard have also been trimmed in black nappa leather with contrasting red stitch to tie it all together.

A double DIN head unit conversion allows modern technologies such as Apple CarPlay, satellite navigation, bluetooth/usb connectivity, DAB radio and reversing camera meaning your favourite driving music is only a touch away. The smaller Twisted steering wheel completes the look in the front and makes for a much more engaging cockpit. The loadspace has not been forgotten and has been soundproofed and carpeted whilst the window surrounds have also been beautifully trimmed in matching leather and alcantara to complete the look.

Twisted build plaques are fitted internally and externally certifying this build as a genuine Twisted. Currently on show here at the Old Cinema, Thirsk, it can be prepared ready for the road or delivered on covered transport.
