Based on the short-wheelbase 90, this is the Land Rover Defender SVX; a special edition built to celebrate Land Rover’s 60th anniversary. A rare car has been made unique with a full Twisted conversion to compliment the model specific bodywork.

A cosmetic overhaul retains the best features of the brutal SVX with a number of exterior features now colour coded with the external cage, grille and side rails all now in body colour. The satin 60th Anniversary graphics are now not only joined by SVX badging but also now proudly bear the name of the Twisted brand.

Side vents now have a silver insert while the top vents aside the bonnet have also been colour coded. Paintwork is exceptionally clean and consistent throughout.

Step up via the non-slip running boards into the choice of two very different worlds – total open air or cocooned via tonneau. Equipped with unmarked Recaro half leather seats this go-anywhere 4×4 features other useful mod-cons with front and rear heated windscreens, AC and front heated seats as well as Garmin Nav. All of which work quickly and effectively; essential in winter conditions. The spare wheel has been relocated to the back of the car to now accommodate a rear bench.

The upgraded Alpine audio system works as it shpuld with easily accessible slots for your favoured MP3 devices.

A new design of hood was used, sloping down towards the rear over a jointed folding frame, unlike the standard square-framed hood used on other soft top Land Rovers.

A myriad of upgrades breathe new life into this 2.4 with Intercooler, Exhaust and ECU programming all provided by the Twisted engineering team. Performance is markedly different, with a huge bump in mid range torque that has you hastily moving through the 6 speed /box.

Regular servicing ensures the engine and drivetrain perform admirably.

The 18-inch Satin black alloy wheels on this example present in perfect condition with no curb marks or dents. All wrapped in a shod set of matching Toyo performance rubber.

Brakes in front have been adopted from the 110.

Registered in 2008 by Park’s of Ayr this SVX Soft Top was thoroughly reworked by Twisted Performance in 2010. With £10k worth of modifications the car has always enjoyed a healthy service routine with either the Land Rover main dealer or Twisted themselves. The last service was carried out in January of 2017 at 19,600 miles. The car is also fresh from a Hunter front toe adjustment performed in November.

A full breakdown of the parts inventory installed by Twisted is available in the history file alongside the spare key and original book pack.

An extremely rare opportunity to acquire an Anniversary edition Soft top with the full Twisted treatment.
