In 2020, Marco Klaas and Rick Terlouw combined their knowledge, strength, experience, passion and networks to start Klaas & Terlouw. Specialised in Great British cars, the car company can be found right off the A1 in Enter, The Netherlands. Ideally located for customers in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

The Heritage Customs Satellite Studio is located in the newly opened Klaas & Terlouw car company. All Heritage Customs Carchitecture projects will be carefully composed in the Heritage Customs Satellite Studio at Klaas & Terlouw. The custom build Land Rover Defenders will also be constructed in the fully equipped workshop by their experienced craftspeople and mechanics.

“Our client was keen to co-design an outspoken all terrain Valiance through the Heritage Customs Carchitecture program. This one-off Heritage Customs Valiance Dakar, finished in the bold bespoke unicolour Sahara Tan, features our new 20 inch Rock Dust forged wheels, in this case in gloss black. The headliner was upholstered in black Alcantara matching with the black interior upholstery.”

– Jan-Pieter Kroezen, co-owner of Heritage Customs

“This car in its striking black over Sahara Tan duo tone setup features a very clean look. On the nose of the Heritage Customs Valiance Dakar we applied Santorini Black to the DEFENDER letters, the chequer plates on the bonnet and the side vents. Also the insert in the front and rear bumpers were finished in Santorini Black, just like the tow loops on the back bumper, A-pillar and side block.”

– Niels van Roij, car designer and co-owner of Heritage Customs

Commissioning a Heritage Customs Valiance

The prices for a Heritage Customs Valiance special build are on request. All Heritage Customs projects are 100% tailor-made and start out with sketches, based on conversations with the future owners in the Heritage Customs Satellite Studio at Klaas & Terlouw. The design and construction process of the Heritage Customs Valiance is about 1.5 months.
