Kahn Design caused quite a stir when they revealed their Land Rover Defender Pickup restomod project. The odd shape of the thing was perceived by the fans as extremely cool. Now they are taking that car to the next level by introducing the Flying Huntsman Defender Pickup.
With this project car the pickup graduates from being a mere tuner car and becomes a member of Kahn’s coach-built family. The Flying Huntsman is custom version of the Defender which also comes in two-door 4×4 and two-door 6×6 bodystyles.
Flying Huntsman Defender Pickup is exactly what it says on the tin; a pickup version of the standard Huntsman, featuring the same elongated bonnet (400mm) and wide body kit (150mm). It also gets the same front and rear wing apparatus, as well as the extended wheel arches, headlamps, front bumper replacement with bumper lights, bonnet and side vents with mesh stainless steel, side steps, X-Lander front grille and 8″ x 18″ Defend 1945 Retro Wheels in Matt Black.
But where the normal Huntsman gets a 6.2-litre GM LS3 V8 engine with 430 horsepower, the pickup version is fitted with 2.2-litre diesel engine. The idea of a V8-powered pickup truck probably proved too spicy for Kahn’s taste. But this engine means they can present this car at the fairly reasonable price, given the fact that it’s a coach-built job, of £58 875.
Other highlights of Flying Huntsman Defender Pickup include GTB sports seats, leather upholstery, Churchill time clock & rev counter fascia, vented machined aluminium foot pedals and a Kahn billet steering wheel.Preview: Flying Huntsman Defender Pickup by Kahn,
