Chelsea Truck Company World Cup Edition Defender
14th Jun 2018
Thirty-two countries will battle it out for the football World Cup, Brazil are favourites to lift the Jules Rimet trophy – whilst Germany, France and Spain are also potential winners.
However, there is only one Jules Rimet trophy when it comes to automotive prowess.
Forget 1966, Zinedine Zidane’s heroics for France in 1998 along with Paul Gascoigne’s tears in Turin via Italia 90, when the final whistle blows at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium on July 15, one lucky individual could go down in automotive folklore, by being the real winner, as the owner of the Chelsea Truck Company World Cup edition – a Honey Mustard Defender 2.2 TDCI XS 90 – Chelsea Wide Track edition.
In addition, Kahn Group C.E.O and Design Director, Afzal Kahn is willing to give away a number plate valued at £500,000 to an England player, should the three lions lift the World Cup trophy in Russia.
Mr. Kahn will pass the No. 4 registration, valued at £500,000, to England’s number four, Eric Dier to place on his vehicle, if Gareth Southgate’s men are crowned the kings of world football.
“Dier refuses to be intimidated by opponents, is humble and very ambitious,” said Mr. Kahn.
“Playing in a World Cup is the pinnacle for any proud English man. I would like to wish Eric, and the rest of the team the best of luck for the tournament, and hope my gesture possibly motivates him that little bit extra to bring the world cup home.”
The World Cup edition sets itself apart from virtually everything on the road.
Front and rear wide wing arches, with exposed bolt apertures, an X-Lander front grille, stainless steel hood and fender vent mesh, full front bumper replacement with integrated lights and shadow chrome headlights lend a more resolute and modern look.
In addition, the accomplished design is complemented impeccably by the Chelsea Truck Company wheel cover and optional side steps that allow for easy access.
Beneath the bodywork, a new set of new Mondial wheels, measuring 9 x 20” at the front and rear with 275/55/20 Cooper tyres reveal a penchant for attention grabbing style.
Behind the wheels sit painted brake calipers, toughened mud flaps and a twin cross-hair exhaust system in stainless steel.
Inside, the cabin is the beneficiary of premium luxury.
Both the front and rear seats have been replaced with Sports GTB seats in quilted and perforated leather.
Leather also adorns the instrument binnacle, centre glove box, top and grab handles along with the passenger dashboard.
Drivers also benefit from a Kahn billet steering wheel vented foot pedals in machined aluminium and a Churchill Time Clock and custom rev counter fascia, whilst hard-wearing front and rear floor mats make sure that a drive through the city will not ruin the cabin.
Eric Dier’s fellow England players also have an opportunity to bag gifts, should they help England to their first World Cup victory since 1966.
The 1966 DB, S50 CER and F00 71E registrations also being made available by Mr. Kahn.
The British designer is also hoping to reward England’s Danny Rose for publicly speaking about his struggles with depression.
“For someone from the football industry, which is synonymous with power and strength, to put his head above the parapet in such a brave manner, will help remove the stigma for sufferers as depression is the single biggest killer of men aged under 45 in the UK.
“I would like to congratulate Danny for not being ashamed of or diminished by what he has been through.
“Again, I hope the chance to own one of our high value number plates, motivates Danny and a few of the other lads, as the business community is also behind them, and willing to help in any way we can.”
The World Cup edition is available to purchase for £69,995.
