Twisted Performance Defender

Twisted Performance, an independent builder of special edition Defenders for the UK market, has released new photos of its vehicles: the Alpine, French, and Retro Editions. Each Twisted Performance special edition Defender is available as either a long-wheelbase Classic 110 or a short-wheelbase Sport 90. Depending on the edition and the trim, modifications can include re-trimmed or upgraded seating, upgraded sport suspension, roof rack, upgraded brakes, leather interior furnishings, 18″ or 20″ wheels with performance or off-road tires, sound proofing, iPod connectivity, and more.

Just so our U.S. readers will not feel too left out, in a future post we’ll be talking about how you can get a “better than new” Land Rover Defender in the U.S. market. That is, of course, if you don’t want to wait until 2015 for an all-new Defender that will be based on the Defender Concept 100 (DC100). While there has been no official confirmation that the DC100 will come to the U.S., most industry watchers are considering it a sure thing.

All three editions are equipped with the Twisted P10+ performance kit. This kit offers engine control unit (ECU) remapping and hardware upgrades that boosts horsepower by 30 to 40 HP for the 200/300 Twisted Performance Retro EditionTDI, 70 to 90 HP for the TD5, and 48 to 56 HP for the TDCi Defender. Twisted Performance also offers P4, P6, and P8 kits.
