Originally launched in 1948, the Land Rover Defender is undoubtedly one of the most iconic off-roaders of all time. And it was a huge disappointment to people around the world when the brand discontinued the model in 2016. Although they’re bringing it back, it’s returning in a very different form. If you’re fonder of the older styles, however, then we have some very good news. Twisted Automotive is now building limited-run restomods of some of the most significant Defenders through their Remake History program.
Available in six different styles from across the decades — the Classic Series I, Classic Series II, Classic Series IIA, Lightweight, Classic Series III, and Stage One V8 — there’s never been a better way to get behind the wheel of the Defender of your dreams. Built to exacting standards, each has been restored and brought into the modern era in magnificent fashion, with upgrades that include improved engine functionality, progressive suspensions, and a number of stylistic tweaks exclusive to Twisted Automotive. Better than the day they originally rolled off the Land Rover assembly line, these historically-significant 4x4s are being produced in extremely limited numbers (some with as few as 10 examples), so you’ll want to act quickly if you want to drive off into the sunset in one. In fact, some are already sold out. Pricing starts at $85,000.
