View From The press: An automotive icon
Mar 25, 2020
Marius Boonzaier of Car Magazine lifts the lid on the Chelsea Truck Company Flying Huntsman 105 Long Nose.
Design by Afzal Kahn, this bespoke version of the previous iteration of the automotive icon boasts an additional 400mm of bodywork that been interleaved into the elongated chassis, in front of the windscreen.
Viewed head-on, the modifications made to the Land Rover Defender (seen here donning Santorini black paintwork) look subtle, with the most notable item up front being the firm’s "X-lander" front grille, replete with headlamp surrounds. However, when viewed from the side, it immediately becomes apparent why this 4x4 is dubbed “Long Nose”.
The wheelarches has been widened, too, and house 20-inch gloss-black alloys wrapped in Cooper Discoverer A/T3 all-terrain rubber (75/55/20 all-round).
