Man set to make millions from buying 200 Land Rovers 'didn't have a clue what to do with his money'

Man set to make millions from buying 200 Land Rovers 'didn't have a clue what to do with his money'

Thankfully his big idea paid off

The lucky sod who's set to make millions after investing in 200 Land Rovers has admitted that he 'didn't have a clue' what to do with his money.

Clearly he didn't need to worry, as his chance decision is well and truly paying off.

Charles Fawcett is the founder and owner of Twisted, a British company that modifies and then sells the tough and durable 4x4 Defenders.

Amazingly, he took a chance on the vehicles, having bought a number of them before they were discontinued in 2015 due to irrelevance and expensive EU emission standards.

But that just made demand shoot up, and now Charles' company is in stock of a number of cars people are willing to pay up to £220,000 a unit for.

Anyone who lands themselves one of the Defenders gets a few extra benefits, including bespoke modifications that are installed by Twisted on a customer-by-customer basis.

Up until recently, the cars have been sitting in storage, with Charles owning a total of 16 - two of each in the eight colour options.

What's more, all of the Land Rovers have less than 30 miles on the clock, meaning they're essentially like buying a new car.

And they're all based on the XS Spec, which was the top level Defender at the time.

In short, he's sitting on an absolute goldmine.

But in a recent Linkedin post, the soon-to-be millionaire explained that he initially had no idea how he wanted to invest his money.

He wrote: "Some people invest in fine wine, some in property, some in bonds, some let other people decide where their money should go for a good return.

The businessman admitted he initially didn't have a clue about what to invest in.

"I’m 44, never had a pension, a bond or a share... often didn’t even have a clue."

The business owner described himself as 'a chancer with a big idea', deciding to put his cash into what he knew.

The 44-year-old went on to share gratitude for his team over the years, as well as the 'three incredible funders who believed it was possible'.

Commenting under the post after it went viral, he said: "There is so much love out there for Classic Defender.

"If you want to buy one of these unique classic Defender with heritage and a brilliant story, drop me an email/message for a list of what’s available and prices.

"Each will be supplied with a minor Twisted modification to ensure we maintain our agreement with JLR. I’m not looking for an offer on the collection."

As said, if you are interested you're going to need some pretty deep pockets - they're a far cry from the original £35,000 price tag.

Charles and his company Twisted modify the vehicles to bespoke criteria for his clients.

Alongside the fact that they're literally not in production anymore, the Defenders Charles is offering come with choice of engine – petrol or diesel – with upgraded brakes, suspension, wheels, tyres, and custom LED lighting.

There’s also a decent infotainment system, soundproofing and leather, which is the sort of comfort that you might not have expected from the original models.

According to Charles, you can pretty much have them in whatever way you like, as long as it is possible.

He told The Sun: "All of the 16 will be Twisted, but exactly how depends on the lifestyle and tastes of the customer.

"The Twisted way isn’t to tell people what their Defender should be; it’s to work with them to create a Defender that’s the best fit for them."

Right now, they're starting at £135,000 plus VAT for the diesel versions and £184,000 plus VAT for the petrol ones.
