Chelsea Truck Company Flying Huntsman 6X6 Is a Modern Icon

The Flying Huntsman 6X6 by The Chelsea Truck Company is no ordinary Land Rover Defender.

When it comes to the Flying Huntsman, there is no need to compromise. With countless mechanical and styling upgrades, this is a limited edition vehicle that provides striking looks, extreme comfort, practicality, a smooth ride and amazing performance.

The Kahn 6.2 V8 Flying Huntsman 6X6 Defender Double Cab is a far cry from the modest Defender 110 it started life as and must be seen to be believed. Radically developed through Kahn Design’s well renowned and expert craftsmanship, this six-wheeled off roader is the ultimate all-turrain SUV.

A vehicle like no other, it creates a superlative expression. Fitted with an extra axle, a heavy duty chassis, upgraded suspension and breaking system as well as a 430-hp of GM LS3 V8 engine, rare and collectable creation certainly isn’t just for show. The V8 ensures staggering performance in all conditions on almost any terrain as it works in tandem with the GM six-speed automatic gearbox.

The menacing look of this instantly recognisable Six Wheel Drive, with its wide arch body kit has been fitted with widened front and rear wings with integrated vents and bolt apertures, alongside an X-Lander front grille, front sump guard and a front bumper replacement with bumper lights and Shadow Chrome headlights. These upgrades give this vehicle a very striking appearance.

This left hand drive Double Cab Pick Up sits on Chelsea Truck Company’s exclusive 1945 Retro Alloy wheels (8x18”) finished in Matte Black with a gold stripe completed with Cooper tyres.

GTB Sports Seats add comfort and a sporty edge to the interior which is hidden externally by dark tinted windows. The re-upholstered roof headlining, bespoke steering wheel, passenger dashboard top and grab handle, door handles, centre glove box, vented foot pedals in machined aluminium along with hard wearing front and rear cabin floor mats add more than a touch of luxury to what was originally built as a military vehicle.

We have taken one of the world’s best loved cars and with a team of expert automotive designers, engineers and craftsmen, created a vehicle that will have its own place in history whilst maintaining many of the Defender's styling cue and individual personality traits.

Priced at £279,999 + VAT, this is a rare opportunity not to be missed.
