Lightweight

Spring 2020

We’ve spent over 800 handcrafted hours re-engineering, painting and prepping our very own homage to a Land Rover classic, the Lightweight

The Twisted Lightweight takes its inspiration from the original vehicle used by our military from 1968 to the end of production in 1984.

With just 10 builds available, our tribute to the half-ton hero relied on so heavily by the Royal Marines and British Army more than 50 years ago, is sure to become a legend in its own right.

800 BUILD HOURS // 50 YEARS of BRITISH HISTORY // 10 BUILDS ONLY

THE ORIGINAL

Officially known as the Half-ton Lightweight, the name refers to the payload it was created to carry.

Slimmed down from the original Series II, it needed to be light enough to be transported by helicopter and slim enough to fit inside an aircraft.

The Twisted Lightweight is an exclusive run of just 10 unique vehicles that pay homage to the original.

Taken from our cherished stock of delivery mileage Defender, this is our interpretation of the military workhorse.

Ensuring we retain a nod to its predecessor, attention to detail is paramount. Finished in the classic Willow Green, there’s a canvas hood, an aluminium double bumper, series half height doors and a front three-seat configuration.

A fold down windscreen and a half height rear door enable the Twisted Lightweight to remain faithful to the original.

Under the bonnet and in the cab, however, it’s a different story. Your average Tommy, getting behind the wheel of the original half-ton Lightweight, wouldn’t have experienced anything like a 2200cc, 172bhp engine; nor would he have enjoyed progressive suspension, or a newly developed infotainment system.

Designed and produced in Yorkshire, the double bumper gives an almighty nod to the original design. Made from aluminium, it has been treated with iridite NCP before being powder coated for a smooth finish.

The seats were a full 12 months in the making. Designed especially for the Lightweight build, and subject to rigorous testing, they boast a unique 3-point centre seatbelt and are trimmed in Biscuit coloured leather with a contrasting Willow Green stitch.

Out of the limited run of 10 builds within the series, only 7 remain available.
