The Stage One V8 is the final chapter in Twisted’s Remake History celebration. 'Stage One' signified the first stage of investment into the manufacturer from the UK Government to enhance the product portfolio.
Upon release, he Stage One V8 comprised of fifteen vehicles, ten of which will be finished in the historic Welsh Grey with canvas hoods. The other five will be sold in their individual original colours from the factory. As each vehicle is built, unique touches will be apparent and the run will not exceed 15. These vehicles have been handpicked from our original order.
As you would expect we have considerately addressed the usual areas of improvement over the standard unit including serious power from our LS3 V8 engine, refined handling, steering, braking, seating, sealing and rust protection, to make this special build Defender the driving experience it deserves. No doubt some will end up in private collections, though they are built with driving and adventure in mind.
In essence, what your feet touch will be hard as the coal taken from the British mines of the same era, what you sit upon or touch with your hands will be soft, comfortable and tactile. The interior will include a seat inspired from the age of the deluxe cab option and the exterior will exude a working class, no nonsense approach.
All of the base vehicles chosen for the Stage One V8 builds were built at JLR between the 11th and 21st January 2016, making them within the very last ever to pass through the factory. These were first registered in early 2016 following the end of production. They have been held in storage awaiting this release for almost 3 years.
All vehicles are delivery mileage, VAT qualifying and N1 commercial status. Each will be supplied with a comprehensive 24 month warranty with return to base breakdown recovery.
