The legend. The icon. The workhorse. This Twisted T130 is the ultimate work hard, play harder vehicle. Now boasting our latest TV8 conversion and pushing northwards of 450hp this will tow your trailer with ease through the week and then become the perfect weekend adventure vehicle.

This special vehicle was one of the last Defender 130 off the line and boasting full XS specification and double cab configuration it was the perfect vehicle for us to build something truly special.

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 upgraded springs, shock absorbers and anti roll bars and features a 2” lift adding to it’s incredible presence. Alongside this, our 18” classic wheel finished in black is fitted with 35” BF Goodrich tyres and 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.

Naturally one of the biggest additions to this Defender is our TV8 conversion boasting a GM LT1 6.2 litre V8 engine paired with a silky smooth 8 speed automatic transmission with sports mode. It provides around 460 horsepower end seemingly endless torque. It is incredibly refined around the town with nothing more than a quiet burble of the V8, but let loose on the open road, the noise and power is something to be relished. It will certainly have you smiling every second you are behind the wheel.

The exterior has been enhanced with our usual attention and benefits from all LED lighting and our stage one front end conversion. The handles, window blocks and fuel filler cap have all been replaced with our billet items and our daytime running light bumper and steering guard add to the Twisted look. The rear loadspace has been covered with a custom chequer plate lockable lid with gas strut assisted access hatches. Inside the tub has been fully lined with our texture coating providing a washable, hard-wearing area for your work or camping gear alike.

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 with body colour backs are in position and offer a fantastic level of comfort. The headlining has been re-trimmed in black alcantara and the dashboard, auto-console and door handles all trimmed in matching leather with contrasting red stitch. A double DIN head unit conversion allows modern technologies such as Apple CarPlay, DAB radio and reversing camera, meaning your favourite driving music is only a touch away and is further enhanced with our incredible 8 channel audio set up. The Twisted  steering wheel completes the look.

It sits proudly with our Twisted Yorkshire plaques and a custom build interior plaque denoting its status as a full Twisted build. Hundreds of man hours have gone in to building this T130 and the results are truly staggering. If you are wanting the ultimate Defender, It is big, bold and full on beast mode.

Original base vehicle covered 42,500 miles, since conversion which included in essence all moving parts this 130 has covered just 500 miles. Its ‘as new’.
