Here’s the dilemma, the Directors of The Edge Of Tomorrow need Tom Cruise to try to roll under a passing vehicle, an attempt whose failure is announced with an off-screen squish.

The next time, however, he gets the timing right, just as a video-game player might finally trial-and-error his or her way through an especially tricky puzzle.

For these particular scenes, a rather military-esque vehicle was needed and this is where A. Kahn Design provides their expertise.


Cruise’s gasp-worthy run-in with a Kahn Jeep has been a significant talking point with a number of commentators and journalists pointing to the scene in numerous reviews. Here's one piece from our friends at AutoExpress.


Taking inspiration from the iconic military heritage of the original Jeep – the Kahn Jeep Wrangler Sahara 2.8 Diesel – Chelsea Truck Company CJ300 LE is a popular style statement of choice for city slickers and off-roaders.


Separating the Kahn Jeep Wrangler CJ300 LE from its standard siblings, though, are exclusive touches. These comprise of what seems to be a volcanic satin silhouette, Kahn wheels, brake callipers, cross hair headlamps, privacy glass, four slot Chelsea Truck Company front grille, Kahn branding and smoked side repeaters.


Nothing beats watching the usually cool and collected actor lumbering around in a clunky suit, getting knocked out of frame suddenly by the rather cool Kahn Jeep, and then immediately restarting the sequence with him learning from his mistakes and crossing the Kahn Jeep’s path safely.
