The magnificent Flying Huntsman 6×6 by Kahn Design is not exactly hot news. In fact, it was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show back in March. But now the British coach-builder has released a bunch of new photos of the car, giving us a better idea how crazy it really is.
There has been some controversy about the design and the very philosophy of the Flying Huntsman 6×6 since it was first previewed in early 2014. Some may it’s an utterly idiotic thing that makes no sense at all, while others accuse Kahn of copying Mercedes’ idea in making a 6×6 version of the G-Wagen. For our part we think the Huntsman is creative and cool machine, and a very awesome toy to have in one’s collection.
The highlights of Kahn Flying Huntsman 6×6, which is based on a Defender 110, include a 400mm extension to the bonnet and an 800mm extension to the rear cabin, the addition of a third axle a two front-wheel and four back-wheel configuration with 9” x 20” Volcanic Black Mondial wheels, a 430-hp GM LS3 V8 engine with a six-speed automatic transmission and an upgraded stainless steel exhaust system, upgraded suspension and braking, hi-lo ratio drive system and locking differentials.
This Volcanic Rock Satin monster also boasts a lavish interior featuring Red Leather Sports seats with 100% wool Abraham Moon Skye Almandine inserts, quilted and perforated centre glove box, Churchill time clock fascia insert and a single spoke steering wheel.
