Drawing from Twisted's unmistakable style and iconic Land Rover heritage, the Twisted North America V8 (NA-V8) is the pinnacle of custom Defender developed for the North American market.

The sophisticated interior is packed with contemporary technology and comforts to suit the needs of the modern driver. Underneath the NA-V8 is a powertrain ripped straight from a Chevrolet Corvette, the LT1, further supported by Twisted’s state-of-the-art braking and suspension system developed with leading manufacturers Alcon, Bilstein and Eibach.

Built to order, the NA-V8 features a modern drive-train, contemporary interior, infotainment and convenient mod-cons. With a range of paint colours, leather options and accessories to choose from, you can add your own twist to the time-honoured paradigm of the english off-road.


Under every NA-V8 is a DOT & EPA compliant chassis. We use a type approved chassis that is galvanised and then RAPTOR coated. The platform comes ready made with mounts for the GM driveline and is stamped under official license.

Solid Foundation


The beating heart of the Twisted NA-V8 comes in the form of a monstrous yet cleverly refined GM 6.2L V8. This Fifth Generation small block Chevy engine, also known as the LT1, has motorsport pedigree that goes all the way back to 1970. Having undergone 6 million hours of research and development, the LT1 was originally destined for the Corvette Stingray, but now finds itself being transplanted into the Twisted NA-V8.
