Kahn Fires Back At Maybach Landaulet With Flying Huntsman 6x6 Soft-Top


In case you want to save cash and get an extra axle while you’re at it.

It’s could be a good thing that Mercedes is funneling lithium into its EQ lineup because there doesn’t seem to be much of it leftover to fulfill its own mental health needs. Everyone under the Silver Star roofs seem to be on board too, with the bean counters giving the G-Class 4x4² to Maybach and letting the engineers and designers go as far as to lob off the rear portion of the roof to make the Maybach G650 Landaulet. It’s vehicles like this that afford Mercedes the luxury of calling its British neighbor, Jaguar Land Rover, tame.

Currently the firm is happy with how well the Range Rover Autobiographys are soaking up the top of the market to care, but that doesn’t quite do it for Kahn. We know Thanksgiving has passed, but the holiday season in general is a great time to give thanks for the things that make life worthwhile…like this Kahn Design Flying Huntsman 6x6 Soft-Top. Yes, it’s name is a mouthful, but the mind needs time to comprehend vehicles like this. Powered by a 6.2-liter GM LS3 V8, what used to be a Land Rover Defender 110 now has 430 horsepower going to all six wheels. The hood itself had to be stretched to accommodate the power plant, but stretching is kind of the Kahn Design Flying Huntsman 6x6 Soft-Top’s thing.

In order for larger people to fit inside more comfortably, Kahn stretched the cabin as well as the rear end—both of which also serve to fit the extra axle and roof mechanism. Not like much more room is needed in the cabin anyways. Passengers can enjoy the fact that the bed now counts as part of the cabin, and lucky occupants sitting in the rear can enjoy the sun by retracting the soft top. Thankfully Kahn will wait until the summer months to reveal the Kahn Design Flying Huntsman 6x6 Soft-Top, at which point buyers can choose between two axles, a soft top, and a Maybach badge for $550,000 or six axles, a soft top, and enough badassery to make badge snobs go running for £250,000 ($333,555). The choice is yours.
