Kahn Design will formally unveil at the Geneva Motor Show a coach-built concept derived from the Land Rover Defender 110 -- the Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6x6 Concept. The concept will be on display at the Kahn Design stand, no. 6338 at 2:45 p.m. on March 3, 2015. Kahn Design is combining the design ethos of names like Pininfarina, Zagato and Bertone with traditional techniques and expert craftsmanship.
The Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6x6 Concept is powered by a 430bhp 6.2-liter GM LS3 V8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with tap shift control. This concept is built to conquer any terrain, thanks to its hi-lo ratio drive system and locking differentials, a heavy duty chassis and upgraded braking and suspension systems.
Kahn Design extended the bonnet by 400mm and the rear cabin by 800mm extension. The company also widened the Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6x6 Concept by 150mm. On the other hand, the Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6x6 Concept’s windscreen rake has been increased while its rear door has been widened. Kahn also increased the length of the front doors to enable improved entry and exit.
It features a full panoramic roof that extends from the B pillars to the rear of the vehicle. The Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6x6 Concept boasts of an aggressive exterior styling inspired by Kahn’s popular Chelsea Truck Company Defenders.
There are proposal for extreme versions of the concept -- like B4, B6, B6+ and B7 armored variants – for maximum security for the driver and passengers. There are now discussions to create a production schedule for the Huntsman, which should include five variants like 4 and 6 wheel versions, a hard top and a pickup. [source: Kahn Design]
