This is a six-wheeled, double-cab convertible Defender

Kahn has made a rival to the heroically outrageous Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet

Read more on:

First, there was the Land Rover Defender. Then Kahn got its hands on the British automotive institution and made the definitely-not-hilariously-mispronounceable Huntsman. After that, there was the other also-definitely-not-hilariously-mispronounceable Flying Huntsman (a Defender with a lengthened nose). Then, a pick-up Huntsman. Finally, a six-wheeled Huntsman. 

But now there’s a mix of all the Huntsman. A Huntsman greatest hits, if you will. Ladies and gents, we’ve give you the six-wheeled, double-cab, long-nosed, convertible Huntsman. Also known as the Flying Huntsman 110 6x6 Double Cab Pickup Soft-Top. Catchy, eh?

See, ever the opportunists, Kahn is making moves to put its grubby fingers in a pie that’s currently only occupied by the heroically outrageous Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet: the sacred and largely pointless sector of luxurious, massive utilitarian convertible SUVs. 

See if your lifestyle requires six wheels, three axles, a Batman-spec paint job, and the possibility of stargazing, all packaged within the confines of a slice of British automotive heritage, you need to give Kahn a call. 

Under the bonnet is a 6.2-litre LS3 V8 with 500bhp. We’re told the brakes and suspension will also get a boost in performance, plus the overall width will be increased by six-inches. Yowch. But stripping half the roof off a Defender may lead to some, erm, interesting structural and rigidity issues. But to see whether it’ll handle like a Twix that you’ve left in your pocket too long, we’ll have to wait until after it’s shown at the Geneva show next year.
