Land Rover Defender 6×6 Concept by Kahn Design, for Geneva Show
Starting next week at Geneva Motor Show, Kahn Design will display a six-wheeled Land Rover Defender. It is dubbed the Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6×6 Concept, as it is a coach-built concept based on the Land Rover Defender 110. Through this, Kahn Design envisions a rival for the ultimate six-wheeler, Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6.
Powering the unique Defender model is a 6.2 litre LS3 V8 General Motors engine, dishing out an estimated max power of 430 bhp, linked to 6-speed automatic transmission. The drivetrain will feature hi-lo ratio drive system with locking differentials, which will be complimented by enhanced suspension & braking systems, to squeeze the last drop of fun from the six-wheeled Defender. The capabilities of the modified Land Rover SUV will be further upgraded by heavy-duty chassis, with option to equip armour plating in compliance with required standards like B4, B6, B6+ or B7.
The six-wheeled Land Rover Defender concept could be put into limited production, according to Kahn Design. In that case, the model will be offered in five variants, including four- and six-wheel configurations, in hard top and pickup body types.
