6X6 Civilian Carrier By The Chelsea Truck Company Unveiled At The 2018 Geneva Motor Show
6th Mar 2018

The Chelsea Truck Company has announced plans to manufacture a coach-built concept vehicle based on the Land Rover Defender 110.

Kahn  Group C.E.O and Creative Director, Afzal Kahn and his team have  combined traditional techniques and expert craftsmanship to create a  modern icon, offering a striking and aggressive vehicle inspired by  Kahn’s popular Chelsea Truck Company Defenders.

Entitled the  Flying Huntsman 6X6 Civilian Carrier, our latest coach built vehicle is a  supremely capable all-terrain vehicle with the looks to match.

Mr  Kahn, who prides himself on the professional pseudonym ˜The Road is my  Catwalk’, delivers this high-impact edition with such clout; it is safe  to say that this game-changer would not look out of place with  London, Chelsea or New York centric drivers, rock climbers and  off-roaders at the helm, nor would it look weary in battle as troops  speed into combat - feeling almost unstoppable with excellent ground  clearance, grip levels and good axle articulation.

The 6X6  Civilian Carrier is around 880mm longer than a normal Defender and is  adorned with a full range of mechanical and styling upgrades.

Beyond  the added length and mechanical upgrades, the modern design language  has been turned up a notch thanks to a new styling package that consists  of a Volcanic Rock colour change, front wings with integrated vents and  wide rear wings in light weight composite, X-Lander front grille and  headlamp surrounds.

Full panoramic roofing that extends from the B  pillars towards the rear, a replacement front bumper with LED  headlights give the vehicle an aggressive look to match its stretched  six-wheeled silhouette.

As part of the transformation, the team  also added a third axle, creating a two front-wheel and four back-wheel  configuration with 18\" Huntsman wheels coupled with Cooper LTZ  275/55/20 tyres, supplied by Cooper Tire, our official tyre partner.

Built  to tame even the hardiest terrain, with a hi-lo ratio drive system and  locking differentials, a rugged heavy duty chassis as well as an  upgraded braking system, ensures the Flying Huntsman 6X6 Civilian  Carrier is a prime example of mechanical and engineering excellence.

Dark  tinted windows keep the cabin hidden, but step inside and you will find  a distinctly un-Defender-like chrome steering wheel. Quilted  headlining, sat-nav and a host of trim options complete the upgrades.

The  factory seats have evolved and headed in a previously unimaginable  direction. One will find a total of nine striking Kahn quilted seats -  all of which exude innovative differentiation in the form of the finest  style and comfort.

The seats adjust in a multitude of ways to  make this vehicle the most comfortable place to be, different  multi-density foams have been used to increase flexibility and boost  comfort, ensuring the seats are perfectly tailored - taking the design  to the next level.

Seats can extend forward for better thigh  support; passengers can also push seats up for more ease, the  possibilities for nine occupants are endless.

Afzal Kahn, chief  executive of Kahn Design, expects the coach built vehicle to be snapped  up quickly by discerning investors and collectors alike.

"We are a  fully independent British car company and it is an exciting time. The  Civilian Carrier is a stunning six-wheel drive car, ideal for big  families who enjoy spending time together in the great outdoors," said  Mr Kahn.

"With extensive safety features and plenty of clever  technology to make driving effortless, the Civilian Carrier could be the  best choice for carrying family, friends and their luggage.

"The  Land Rover Defender is one of my top five favourite cars. There is  something about it that makes you smile - it demands respect."

The  Flying Huntsman 6X6 Civilian Carrier along with the Chelsea Truck  Company Black Hawk edition will be on display on stand 1141 at the 2018  Geneva Show, with Afzal Kahn on hand to speak with the assembled media.
