KAHN DESIGN UNVEILS THE LAND ROVER DEFENDER HUNTSMAN CONCEPT
4th Mar 2015

Kahn Design has unveiled the new coachbuilt Land Rover Defender model under its Huntsman brand: the Land Rover Defender Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6x6 Concept at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

The Huntsman Concept is a coach-built special edition vehicle based on the Land Rover Defender which is currently on display at stand 6338, Hall 6 at 14:45.

The vehicle has been lengthened with a 400mm extension to the bonnet, and 1000mm extension to the rear cabin, as well as being widened by 150mm. The windscreen rake has been increased, and the exterior is augmented with a square sectioned wide arch body kit manufactured from hammer formed aluminium panels, as well as a redesigned X-Lander front grille and front bumper.

A 6.2-litre GM LS3 V8 engine drives a six-speed automatic gearbox operated by push-button controls.

Upgraded braking and suspension, and a quad crosshair exhaust system complete the engineering overhaul.

With an estimated 430 bhp the explosive performance of the Huntsman Concept is a far cry from the stolid pulling power of the original. Built to tame even the hardiest terrain, this modern British icon is equally comfortable outrunning any road going 4x4.

True to the Defender’s British heritage, the Huntsman Concept has been produced entirely in the UK.

“The Defender is probably the most iconic and well-loved British vehicle in existence - I believe even more so than the Mini” commented Afzal Kahn, CEO and creative director of the Kahn Group.

“The fact that Land Rover are retiring it is an absolute tragedy - it’s one of my top three all time favourite vehicles.”

“With the Huntsman Concept I set out to create something fashionable, iconic and revolutionary which carries on the spirit of the Defender. These days it’s not what you wear, it’s what you drive. It’s a truly British icon in the same way the Wrangler is to the US, the G-Class to Germany or the Land Cruiser L70 to Japan. It’s instantly recognisable - if you saw one on the Moon, you’d know it was a Defender.”

The redesigned silhouette, coupled with Kahn Design’s renowned styling has produced a one of a kind vehicle which is as iconic as the original, and makes a definite and lasting statement.

The Huntsman Concept is the superlative expression of the Land Rover Defender - tougher, faster and more recognisable than any of its contemporaries, the culmination of over 25 years of experience in the automotive industry.

The Huntsman marque signifies exceptional power coupled with all terrain performance - a vehicle which can take you literally anywhere you need to go at speed and in safety.

The Huntsman Concept can be extended to B4 and B6 armoured variants, as well as several potential engine options, including the V8 Ford Coyote and V8 Ford XS which would increase the power output even further.
