not so mellow yellow

FOR some or other reason covers with bright yellow or orange Land Rovers on them sell very well. Two years ago the main image of our Buyers Guide issue was a bright orange G4 Discovery 3 and it did pretty well. That, though, is not why we have put a bright yellow Stage One V8 belonging to Jonathan Douglas, the MD of JE Motors, on the cover. Yes, it is a cracking shot with lots of movement and a bit of sideways action but we straight away fell in love with this resto mod. It’s not perfect when it comes to things like paintwork, but it was oh so much fun to drive. Read more on page 42. Then I would like to make an appeal to all LRM readers to join…

thirteen: lucky for some

THIS year marked the 13th edition of the Land Rover Party of Les Comes, which attracted 700 Land Rovers from all over Europe and more than 4000 people. And it had a few headline-grabbing acts, too, the most impressive of which was the new Defender, which at the time had just had made its first appearance to a global audience at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Held at the Land Rover Experience Centre at Les Comes, located in the town of Súria, Barcelona, this year’s party gathered participants from more than ten different countries: France, Germany, England, Italy, Belgium and Portugal, among others. While the new Defender was the greatest attraction of the weekend, making its Spanish debut, the Saturday night also proved popular when there was a special celebration party in…

new player on the tyre scene

IF you’re looking for a well-priced all-terrain and mud-terrain tyre then you might want to consider Comforser, which is a subsidiary of Shandong Yinbao Tyre Group – one of China’s most prestigious manufacturers of SUV tyres. Exclusively available from Micheldever Tyre Services, they pride themselves on tyres that are quiet and comfortable but also offer outstanding performance off-road. Significant to Comforser’s range is the CF1000 A/T all-terrain and CF3000 M/T mud-terrain tyres. The former is an all-terrain summer tyre which has a unique 3D block design for enhanced grip on both wet and dry roads, and protects the tread against damage sustained under severe road conditions, as well as a pattern which performs equally off-road as it does on-road. It also features sidewall protection and a highly durable two-ply construction. The latter…

calling all us twisted fans

DEFENDER specialist Twisted has expanded its operations into North America, with two key appointments and a team of technicians working from facilities in Virginia. As well as aiming to be the go-to Defender modification specialist in the USA, Twisted Middle East is set to follow next year – and we’ll be sure to update you as and when we hear more. Established in 2001, North Yorkshire-based Twisted was the first company to incorporate an American engine, the LS3, into a UK Defender back in 2012, so it’s rather apt that its first global expansion isin the Land of Opportunity. The new business, based in a 40,000sq ft facility in South Boston, has been three years in the making and work is currently underway on the first three vehicles, with orders invited…
