• We specialise in taking the standard Defender® and making extensive modifications, whilst keeping the essence of what the Land Rover® should be. Our engineers can spend over 300 hours improving everything from simple bolts, to full engine rebuilds and luxury interiors designed around a customer’s individual requirements.

    A Twisted is the ultimate expression of modern dynamism and luxury; a vehicle that is as comfortable off-road as it is on the autobahn. Twisted simply makes each vehicle the best it can be.

  • No, we’re an entirely separate company. Twisted Automotive restores and modifies existing Land Rover® Defenders®. Twisted Automotive is not sponsored, associated, approved, endorsed, nor affiliated with JLR® in any way (see our T&Cs for full details).

  • Yes. In June 2020, we opened our boutique showroom in Towcester. Close to the race-track, the three-vehicle showroom offers Southern based customers an opportunity to see our vehicles up close. To pre-book a visit, please contact ian@twistedautomotive.com

  • Twisted has built an international reputation for quality engineering and a creative approach to meeting the needs of the most demanding customers. We’re not limited to cosmetic enhancements, a large part of what we do involves not only making the Defender® drive better, but also last longer.

  • Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – or so we’re told. There are a handful of imposters out there, but thankfully only a true Twisted vehicle will have the ‘Twisted Build Plaque’ proudly on display on the dashboard. However, we do offer a Drive In / Drive Out service and Twisted parts are available to buy at our online store. So, if a vehicle looks like one of ours, but doesn’t have the Twisted Build Plaque, it’s not necessarily a fake. Some people choose to improve their existing vehicle, either gradually over time, or by booking in for a complete overhaul. Whilst these ones are undoubtedly improved, and part of the Twisted extended family, only full-spec vehicles receive the Twisted Build Plaque and Yorkshire plaques.

    You can check the validity of any individual Twisted parts, or work undertaken, by asking for the supporting documentation which is always provided by us at the point of transaction.

  • There are 3 options:

    1. Buy a new vehicle from us. We have a stock of new Defender® and Twisted Automotive are the first registered owners. This is a crucial piece of information in the vehicle achieving a Twisted Build Plaque. This vehicle can entirely be specified to your individual choice.
    2. Bring your own Defender® to our Drive In/Drive Out service. This can range from a small job such as wheels and tyres, through to a full restoration and re-build of your vehicle including new engine. We would be delighted to discuss this with you.
    3. Buy a secondhand Twisted. We hold various used Twisted vehicles which can be found on our website, however, if you do buy a used Twisted elsewhere, please do feel free to contact us for authentication.
  • Changing standard manufacturers parts does invalidate Land Rover® warranty. However, we do warrant all of our work to coincide with Land Rover® warranty wherever possible. Feel free to give us a call if you have a specific query you’d like to discuss.

  • 1988 onwards.

  • Yes, we have a fully equipped workshop and offer a full range of servicing options for Defender®.

  • We have enough new units in stock to last for the next few years. The Twisted story doesn’t end there though, we’ll continue to offer our Drive In/Drive Out service for customer owned Defender®. From soundproofing, to stainless fixings and engine power upgrades, to full individual conversions. We also offer a restoration service for Defenders® in need of a little TLC. Whatever your pride and joy needs, our dedicated workshop team are here to help.

  • Yes. But some more than others. Experience has shown that some sympathetic future proofing and reliability enhancements really do make the ownership and driving experience more pleasant and fulfilling. Very few clients do not take advantage of the Twisted experience.

  • Yes. There are certain countries with import restrictions, but we will always assist in any way possible.

  • Yes, no problem at all! Get in touch and we will be able to provide more information on models we can create for you.

  • Yes absolutely. We are always on the look out for well cared for, low mileage Defender. Send us an email with some images and details of the vehicle and hopefully we can help!

  • We'll never say never of course, but our sole focus at this moment in time is to continue to develop and better the Classic Defender. 

  • Yes we do. If you have a vehicle to part exchange which isn't a Defender we will still be able to take it in part exchange
