View From The Press: City To Coast Cruising In A Chelsea Truck Company Black Hawk
Mar 23, 2020
For certain fans of rugged, ready for anything machines, the Wrangler is a logical choice. Now, there is a completely different option. Chelsea Truck Company Sydney is now open for business with a showroom in Brookvale that houses its first complete project, the Black Hawk Jeep, says Australian Journalist, Tegan Lawson.
Afzal Kahn founded the Chelsea Truck Company in the UK. The British automotive designer is also the force behind Kahn Design and Project Kahn. Kahn’s car legacy began when he designed an alloy wheel in 1996, he then expanded into other custom designed accessories and by 2002 he was doing complete vehicle upgrades.
CTC turns Jeep Wrangler, Land Rover Defender and Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen vehicles into customised creations that combine glamorous finishes with bold body work – but you’d want to be ok with attracting attention to buy your own. The range will soon expand to include the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque.

We took the Black Hawk for a cruise around Sydney, from the Northern Beaches to urban areas around the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This is where the Black Hawk will be most commonly found. Despite the Wrangler’s predilection for off-road adventures, the CTC version isn’t geared for dirt, dust, mud or sand.
Based on the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport, the Black Hawk is just as capable as the standard offering, however the body panels and interior finishes are a little too pretty to want to put it through the wringer off the blacktop.
