Leaving our Yorkshire doors in February, this unique 90 is one of two Halo builds to be created this year. Starting life as a Montalcino Red Defender, our team stripped it back, prepared it and the began the process of colour changing it to its new colour, Alaska White. With every detail poured over and nothing left untouched, this build spent over 675 handcrafted hours on ramp, before the commissioned build left the factory to its new home.
Making it his own, we spoke to Twisted technician Eliott Holmes about the specifics of the build and what creating it meant to him. He said “Coming from a Bentley background, it felt very fitting that my first complete Twisted build was a unique spec like this 90.It definitely caught the eye in the workshop, as it’s not everyday you see a Defender that wears these colours and materials, but it definitely got the love it deserved when it drove off my ramp.
With regards to the interior, I particularly love how the wood floor flows within the car and how the fawn leather ties it all together. You almost don’t realise the seat box exists due to it being trimmed in the matching hide. On the exterior, I think it’s special how the colour matched roll hoop blends in with the car, yet stands out at the same time. It’s also the first time I have seen natural billet handles, and I think they work perfectly with this build.
I really enjoy building unique specifications like this one, it’s great to see the customer’s individuality come to life in the iconic Defender and be able to put my name and twist on it”.
