British tuning house adds to its growing Flying Huntsman line-up with Land Rover Defender-based pick-up

Kahn has released the first pictures of its new Flying Huntsman 105 Defender Pick-Up prototype.

Based on the Land Rover Defender, the pick-up is the latest in what has become a family of Flying Huntsman vehicles. The first two models, a standard off-roader and a more hardcore 6x6 version, were unveiled at the Geneva motor show earlier this year.

Kahn says it has added 15in to the standard car’s 90in wheelbase, as well as adding extra length to the front and widening the car by 150mm.

The Flying Hunstman Pick-Up is based on the Defender 90 pick-up, but the British tuning house says it has overhauled the suspension and braking systems and fitted a new six-speed automatic transmission.

Other mechanical modifications include new wings at the front and rear, extended wheel arches, a new front bumper, chrome headlights, new bonnet and side vents and 18in alloy wheels.

Inside, Kahn says the car gets sports seats clad in Artico leather, with custom fittings used throughout. Among the new fittings is a Churchill clock and a new Kahn-designed steering wheel.

Despite the car currently being designated a prototype, Kahn plans to put the model into production with prices starting at £70,650. The company says the car represents "exceptional value for money".

Don't reflect your taste on other people. People should be able to buy what they like without you sitting in judgment.

Apart from the long nose which makes the proportions look very odd from the side I can't see anything stylistically which offends me really. Of course I can't think of a single reason to have one but I'm sure someone will

So, what's wrong with a 110 if they made a 105? (I know the answer, I'm just being difficult)

Half of me thinks its great that a UK business in Bradford is doing well.
The other half of me goes 'AAAHHHH it's disgusting, can't they put their talents to something else!'

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
