SPOTTED - Twisted V8 - Mont Blanc

Spotted this cheeky little Twisted V8 when I was popping to the shops. Required a U-turn and detour to have a peek and take a photo, but worth the extra 10mins Whistle

Didn't realise they do the bolted on wheel arches like Khan, personally think they are ugly-but that's just me Smile

Those wheels/ arches must be wider than they look, the driver needed 2 parking spaces Whistle

The STTs were massive. Without the arches, (and I agree, not a fan), you’d never see it of the side windows. Looking at the photo, almost 30% of the tyre extends beyond the body work. No wonder it’s a V8, it would need it to push against the wheels’ so rolling resistance. Whistle Monsieur Le Grenadier

Like that, worth the detour to take the picture.
What we tend to forget is that a customised vehicle is designed by/for an individual, not to appeal to the masses Cool Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

Saw this again yesterday. Waved, nothing back. Disappointed. I’m hoping they’ve bought it because they like Defenders and not to be fashionable. But, it’s a free world. Sounds fab though..... Thumbs Up Monsieur Le Grenadier

I don't like the arch set up either on these.
