French Edition Twisted Land Rover Defender

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Twisted Performance Land Rovers since I first saw them at the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this year. This is not the first of their builds we have featured either and to be quite honest I very much doubt it will be the last.

Earlier this year we featured the awesome Retro Edition, but it’s this beautiful specimen, the ‘French Edition’ that first had me at hello, the minute I walked onto their stand. I’m not much of a 4×4 guy, in that I don’t like to get my toys dirty. But as much as these Twisted Defenders will do the job perfectly well on the farm or the desert, for some reason I can’t help but think I wouldn’t want to get one of these dusty, let alone dirty.

I just want it on my drive, looking dark and mysterious. Looking menacing and bad and I want people to stop and stare as I drove past in the city to pick up groceries. OK, I know the old ‘Chelsea Tractor’ label that this kind of ‘disrespectful to REAL off-readers’ attitude would attract. But I don’t care. I want one. And I want it looking shinny and clean the entire time.

Let me also tell you that inside, these are about as good as it gets when it comes to off-road or SUV comfort. It kind of makes me wonder why anyone would pay $160k for a top-of-the-line Range Rover, when you would just blend into the background with all the other top-of-the-line Range Rovers. You’re certainly not getting much more in terms of interior luxury. So why I ask you, is more the worlds city dwelling 4×4 owners not cruising around in a Twisted Land Rover Defender?

Perhaps it’s better that way. That only the ‘guys that know’ *gives a wink* get to enjoy them all to themselves!

Available in the 90 and 110 spec, the French Edition Defender enjoys the Twisted P10+ performance kit, 18″ BFG Tires, 18″ sport alloy wheels in gloss black, a pretty slick Momo 350mm steering wheel and black Nappa leather front seats with contrast stitching.
