Is The Flying Huntsman The Social Media King?
10th Aug 2015
But why after almost 5 months after being officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, is the Flying Huntsman range of models which include the 110 WB 6x6 Concept and the 105 Longnose Defender and Pick Up models still the talk of the automotive world?
Geoff Love, Land Rover Monthly Magazines owner posted a short video of the 6x6 when it was officially unveiled at the Geneva show, and the result smashed all the company’s previous social media records, with LRM’s Facebook page amassing a reach in excess of 1.5 million.
And only last week did LRM’s Advertising executive, Steve Miller notice a massive 161, 708 reach and over 5,000 likes when a few standard images of the 6X6 at the Billing Land Rover Fest were posted, once again on LRM’s Facebook page.
Miller believes the Huntsman range of vehicles makes the standard LRM reader and Facebook follower sit up and take notice.
“They wonder what it is, why it’s been created and how it was done,” said Miller.
“Their mechanical minds wonder whether they could build it themselves, or whether it really is a masterpiece. They soon realise that it’s real and cannot resist sharing it with their FB mates, or at least giving it a ‘like’ as a way of recognition.”
According to Kahn Design’s Marketing Manager Matthew Coffey the reason why the Huntsman range of models is so popular is because they are Afzal Kahn’s most ambitious designs to date.
“Only Afzal Kahn would have the resolve to design such a vehicle,” says Coffey.
“We have listened, learned and delivered in terms of showcasing a range of vehicles that serve the needs of our discerning clients.
“In branding terms, the Afzal Kahn story-telling aspect is strong, and Mr. Kahn has done an outstanding job showcasing his success to build an emotional connection with our fanbase in the form of the Huntsman range of vehicles.”
