Welcome to LR Motors™


On January 29th 2016 Land Rover ceased production of the vehicle we all loved, the Defender. Here in Yorkshire, LR Motors is an independent motor company which was established in 2015 in an attempt to keep the Defender dream alive. Since our birth, we've bought and sold over 450 Defender and Series vehicles, selling worldwide from New Zealand to Canada. We also specialise in USA & Canada exportable Land Rover®    Buying a Defender should always be a pleasurable experience. We are lucky enough to always have a large range of vehicles in stock. Anything from a restored Series vehicle, a delivery mileage 2016 plate model or second hand Twisted, there is a good chance we'll have what you are looking for in stock. Our aim is to make the search for your next Defender as easy as possible. We have a large number of parts and certainly know our way around Defender, so browse our shop or book in a conversion to complete the look of your Defender.    In 2019 we became a franchised retailer for CAN-AM® off road & SEA-DOO® personal watercraft. We can now offer the full range of ATV and SSV vehicles as well as the amazing range of personal watercraft SEA-DOO® offer.

About LR Motors

LR Motors is an independent company dedicated to the Land Rover Defender, selling, sourcing, servicing, repairing and supplying parts for this iconic vehicle. Founded in 2015, in response to a gap in the market for a company that caters purely for the Defender, LR Motors is owned and managed by a team whose experience and passion for the vehicle are second to none. Our team is crucial to LR Motors’ success – every employee has been hand-picked for their dedication to the Defender and because they are the very best at what they do.

Between them, the team boasts more than 100 years’ knowledge and experience. Everyone from the sales team to the mechanics is every bit as passionate about the Defender as the owners themselves. Our aim is to offer an enhanced service to our customers. All our vehicles have a protection package that includes a painted front bumper, rear cross member and undersealed chassis, to protect the areas of the Defender that are most prone to rust. We offer a year’s warranty on applicable vehicles and each that is sold has a thorough ‘health check’, with a full service and 12-month MOT included. LR Motors also offers a wide range of Defender accessories, alongside part-exchange and finance package options to customers. 

We are justifiably proud of our track record of outstanding customer service, which along with our expert knowledge sets us apart from the rest. Our forecourt at Thirsk always has a large range of vehicles in stock, from classic vehicles to Defender 90, 110 and 130 – or you can simply browse the website to find your next Defender.


LR Motors (Yorkshire) Limited is part of the Twisted Automotive group, established by Charles Fawcett in 2001, that re-engineers the Defender and has customers around the globe.
