Kahn Design has become one of the world’s premier automotive coach designers, and now the British company is set to announce the debut of another concept vehicle based on the Land Rover Defender 110.
The Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6×6 Concept will be unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and is equipped with a 6.2-liter GM LS3 V8 engine, backed up by a six-speed automatic transmission with tap shift control.
With an estimated 430 bhp, the Flying Huntsman is definitely not your average Land Rover. A two-speed (high- and low-range) ratio drive system, locking differentials, a rugged heavy duty chassis, and upgraded braking and suspension systems, have also been built into the Flying Huntsman.
The exterior styling is aggressive and attractive, and inspired by Kahn’s popular Chelsea Truck Company Defenders. The body has been lengthened with a 15.75-inch extension to the engine hood, a 31.5-inch extension to the rear cabin, and it’s almost six-inches wider. The windshield rake has been increased, the rear door widened, and the width of the front doors increased for improved entry and egress. A full panoramic roof extends from the B-pillars to the rear of the vehicle.
The company has stated that discussions of production are currently in progress, with up to five potential variants, including four- and six-wheel versions, as well as a range of hard top and pickup options. Some armored designs are also on the drawing board. For more details, check out the Kahn Design website and Facebook page.
