Along with some other stylish SUVs.
British aftermarket firm A. Kahn Design has unveiled a new coach-built concept that will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week. Based on the Land Rover Defender 110, the Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6x6 Concept will showcase the company’s coachbuilding skills as it aims to reach the heights set by the likes of Pininfarina and Zagato. The concept will come powered by a 6.2-liter GM-sourced LS3 V8 rated at around 430 hp, mated to a six-speed automatic with tap shift control.
Built for offroading with roadgoing SUV comfort in mind, the six-wheeler boasts a hi-lo drive system and locking differentials, a heavy duty chassis, beefed-up suspension and braking systems, with exterior styling inspired by the company’s aggressive Chelsea Truck Company Defenders. After lengthening the hood by 400 mm, the rear cabin by 800 mm and increasing width by 150 mm, the Defender’s windscreen was reshaped, the front and rear doors were lengthened and a full panoramic roof extends from the B pillars to the rear. Armored variants are currently under consideration, as are four-wheels and optional body styles including hard tops and pickups.
Kahn Design will also have a Range Rover Sport 400 LE, Range Rover Evoque RS250, and Land Rover Defender 90 Chelsea Wide Track on display in Geneva.
