Chelsea Truck Company Vanguard Edition Unveiled
Mar 25, 2020

The 2019 Geneva International Motor Show will see the Chelsea Truck Company Vanguard edition showcased for the first time.

To create this innovative vehicle, Afzal Kahn went back to the  drawing board, reimagining each aspect of the classic Defender from the  ground up.

The principal British Designer has created an innovative design  which marries iconic British style with a military inspired design.

The underlying philosophy has always been to exceed the standards  of the original manufacturer, adding intrinsic value as well as  improving the overall aesthetic.

Cue the ambassadorial Chelsea Truck Company Vanguard edition.

From painstaking conceptual planning, extensive mechanical  upgrades, all the way through to the finer finishing touches, the  styling and precise engineering upgrades illustrate the capabilities of  this vehicle, personifying the meticulous process of its creation.

Perhaps the most obvious part of the transformation is the addition  of widened wheel arches at the front and rear, measuring up to an extra  6 inches on each side, all of which flow outwards, thus ensuring this  ultra-wide defender, which measures up at 3990mm in length, 2090 in  width and 2190 in height has unparalleled visual presence.

Despite starting life as a modest Land Rover Defender, Mr. Kahn and  his team have fitted this vehicle with upgraded suspension axels and  half shafts amongst many other enhancements, thus ensuring this vehicle  is set up to deliver a driving experience like no other, a far cry from  the stolid pulling power of the original.

The tailor made styling package consists of front and rear wide  wings with vents and bolt apertures, (name) black body colour, extended  wheel arches, cross-hair military headlights, bumper sump guard, mesh  side and top bonnet vents, mud flaps, paint roll bars and side steps in  matt black, Kahn fog lamps and the X-Lander front grille command  attention.

A set of commanding (Colour) (Mondial wheels), in an (“9.0 x 18”  fitment)? with 275/50 R18 Cooper Discoverer tyres, supplied by our  official tyre partners, and a twin crosshair exhaust system lend a  rugged look to this special edition.

Inside the luxuriously appointed interior contrasts the Defender’s rugged appearance.

The generous interior benefits from front racing seats in (colour)  and (contrast stitching?). The new seats support occupants far better,  but they also transform the driving position into something close to  ideal.

Door panels, centre glove box, silver contrast stitching, Churchill  time clock and speedo/rev counter facia, Kahn billet steering wheel,  centre console facia, and vented machined aluminium foot pedals complete  the interior package.

The Chelsea Truck Company Vanguard edition is on display at the  Geneva Motor Show alongside the Homage 2 edition on stand 1141 in Hall  6.

This exclusive vehicle is available solely from the Chelsea Truck  Company and selected partners. A limited number of vehicles will be  built, making every model a rare and collectable creation.
