It’s meant to be the customized 6 wheeler version of the Landrover Defender. If there’s ever a zombie apocalypse you’d need this beautiful monster. He only thing we don’t like about this cars design is that seat cloth design they added. 

The Kahn Design Coachbuilt Land Rover Defender Concept to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2015Kahn Design has announced the debut of a coach-built concept based on the Land Rover Defender 110 titled the Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6×6 Concept. The formal unveiling of the prototype, codenamed “Mission 1” took place at the Geneva Motor Show, at the Kahn Design stand, no. 6338 at 14:45 on the 3rd of March, 2015

Since the early 1900s, automotive coachbuilders have created custom vehicles using pre existing chassis. Whilst names such as Pininfarina, Zagato and Bertone have risen to be globally recognised, in recent years there has been no equivalent in Britain.

11206879_944993122198470_3183044149316149896_oNow, Kahn Design is bringing together their design ethos with traditional techniques and expert craftsmanship to create a modern icon, and leading a resurgence in British automotive design and coachbuilding which is set to challenge the rest of the world.

The Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6×6 Concept is equipped with a 6.2-litre GM LS3 V8 engine, driving a six-speed automatic gearbox with tap shift control. With an estimated 430 bhp its explosive performance is a far cry from the stolid pulling power of the original.03-kahn-flying-huntsman-110-wb-6x6-geneva-1

Built to tame even the hardiest terrain, with a hi-lo ratio drive system and locking differentials, a rugged heavy duty chassis as well as upgraded braking and suspension systems, this modern British icon would be equally comfortable outrunning any roadgoing SUV.

The vehicle has been lengthened with a 400mm extension to the bonnet, and 800mm extension to the rear cabin, as well as being widened by 150mm. The windscreen rake has been increased, and the rear door widened along with the front doors increased length to allow improved entry and egress. A full panoramic roof extends from the B pillars to the rear of the vehicle. The exterior styling is striking and aggressive, inspired by Kahn’s popular Chelsea Truck Company Defenders.15-kahn-flying-huntsman-110-wb-6x6-geneva-1

Extreme conversions have been proposed, including both B4, B6, B6+ and B7 armoured variants, to provide maximum security for the driver and passengers. Talks are in currently in progress to map out a production schedule for the Huntsman, with up to five potential variants including 4 and 6 wheel versions, as well as a range of hard top and pickup options. Full details of the concept vehicle was made available at the press conference in Geneva on the 3rd of March, 201511206032_944993308865118_1238829448053485878_n 19599_944993215531794_9120911354106894057_n 11200821_944993162198466_7432157771878692949_n 11116554_944993262198456_1563269827031047371_n
