Just for snow?

As rather tough driving conditions confront us and freezing temperatures threaten to disrupt the upcoming Easter period – the cold snap has once again exerted a hold on the British transport infrastructure.


However, fear not! Even in the most treacherous of conditions the A. Kahn Design Defender is an absolute colossus.


Chameleon-esque in nature: the Kahn wide body Defender will bring out the steel-edged, fearless drive-anywhere person in you; it feels almost unstoppable with excellent ground clearance, grip levels and good axle articulation.


However, don’t be deceived by the well-groomed silhouette either – this archetypal off-roader certainly lives up to its legendary status.


When you own a Kahn Defender - you simply do not drive from one place to another; instead you ‘experience the adventure’ of getting from one place to another - if that is not enough - you'll even look good and drive rather well - even in the most treacherous of conditions.


The hallmark of A. Kahn Design is the lack of pretence – what you see is what you get. And this is why you will see Kahn products in the smarter streets of London, Shanghai and New York. The common denominator is the Kahn brand. In automotive terms it is the ultimate designer label.


Refinement is much enhanced over previous Defenders thanks to an excellent styling package. This includes an aggressive looking wide track arch kit which consists of lightweight extended wide wheel wings with integrated vents, stainless steel front grille with embossed Kahn feature, vented headlight surrounds, side vents with mesh, bonnet vents with mesh, clear rear light lenses, clear side repeaters, clear front light lenses, crosshair headlights, Kahn prototype wing blades, Kahn prototype tailgate badge and Kahn oval tailgate badge ensures drivers attain a great deal of motoring supremacy.


The Kahn Defender also scores profoundly with its luxurious cabin, there’s enough space in there to place all your belongings and then-some!


And once you've pounded through a triathlon, a hard day’s work, or just driven through a great deal of snow - you really want to ride home in a comfortable bespoke seat. Experts say most tri-athletes and even mountaineers do not get a chance to shower straight after their events, and instead climb right into their cars for the long drive home.


Therefore, an interior that's easy to wash and doesn't absorb too much odour or event grime is recommended. Our bespoke touch includes a red Kahn rev counter, red Kahn Churchill time clock, black piano wood centre dash surround, red seat belts, aluminum machined pedals, front and rear racing seats in black quilted nappa leather with Harris Tweed Inserts and silver contrast stitching, centre glove box in black quilted nappa leather and grey alcantara with red and silver contrast stitching, instrument binnacle in grey alcantara with red and silver contrast stitching, dashboard in black nappa leather and grey alcantara with red and silver contrast stitching, roof lining in grey alcantara with Harris Tweed inserts and red contrast stitching, sun visors in grey alcantara with Harris Tweed inserts and red contrast stitching and door trims in black quilted nappa leather and grey alcantara with silver contrast stitching.


The company philosophy is to always give the customers what they want, so Afzal Kahn could for example, design you a vehicle with full colour change (to a colour of your choice) and an interior akin to, let’s say, your favourite leather reclining chair in your living room. Customers could also change the colour of the clock, or ask for anything else, the world is their oyster, so to speak.


Kahn wheels sit perfectly on any vehicle, conveying the essence of the vehicle's identity. Created using state-of-the art manufacturing and materials technology, the 18” 1983 Defender wheels are finished in the colour of your choice and fit all original centre caps. With simple clean lines, soft organic surfaces on the edge of the spoke and a purposeful mechanical centre, the 1983 Defender wheels are synonymous with elegance and innovation.

A. Kahn Design is for the individual who will not submit to a life of uniformity and who will only accept perfection. Dedicated to the creation of luxury bespoke vehicles, we redesign the ordered monotony of mass produced vehicles and rebuild them into individually tailored creations.


One thing for sure, by owning a Kahn Land Rover Defender - you will find that you are not simply blending in with other drivers on the road - the road is your catwalk!
