Based on the Land Rover Defender 110, Kahn says the prototype vehicle - codenamed ‘Mission 1’ - is powered by a 6.3-litre GM LS3 V8 engine producing around 430bhp. Power is sent to the wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
Those specs place the Flying Huntsman into direct competition with the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 which gets 536bhp from its 5.5-litre V8 engine, as well as 560lb ft.
These first show pictures, which come via Pistonheads, show the car has rugged styling, while still keeping many of the Land Rover Defender's styling cues.
The Huntsman 6x6 features locking differentials and a rugged chassis, as well as upgraded suspension and braking systems. Lengthened by a total of 1200mm, and widened by 150mm compared with the standard Flying Huntsman, Kahn says the 6x6 would be “comfortable outrunning any road-going SUV.”
Kahn says that other modifications, including converting the 6x6 into an armoured vehicle, have also been proposed, and the firm is currently mapping out a production schedule for both the four and six-wheel versions of the Flying Huntsman.
