Meet Kahn's 'Flying Huntsman' Defender
Kahn has done many things to many Land Rover products in the past: some tasteful, some rather less so. Here is the company’s latest, the ‘Flying Huntsman 105 Pick Up’.
As you have correctly deduced, the definitely-not-hilariously-mispronounceable Huntsman started life as a Defender pick-up, but - as with the other also-definitely-not-hilariously-mispronounceable Flying Huntsman - gets a lengthened nose.
That bonnet is 400mm longer than the standard Landie’s, together with an increase in width of 150mm. There are also wider, extended front and rear wings with vents and apertures, new headlights, a new front bumper with lights, side vents, a “captivating gold stripe” and matt black 18-inch wheels.
In fact, the whole thing is finished in matt black, too. Underneath there’s Land Rover’s 2.2-litre diesel engine - the 105bhp version - and unspecified brake and suspension upgrades.
Kahn says it has upholstered many things inside the cabin - there’s no image of the interior, perhaps thankfully - and fitted a ‘Churchill’ clock and rev counter fascia, machined aluminium pedals, a billet steering wheel and two ‘GTB’ sports seats.
Prices start from £58,875. A cruel thing to do to the venerable Defender, or curiously appealing?
