4×4 Isn’t Enough: This 6×6 Kahn Flying Huntsman is Ready to Take Over the World!

By: | March 31st, 2015

The British tuning shop Kahn Design has unveiled a 6×6 version of the Land Rover Defender at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Dubbed the Kahn Flying Huntsman, it is based on the Land Rover Defender 110.

Kahn Design has stretched the Defender by about 47 inches in front, and the rear passenger compartment has been stretched by 31.5 inches. They added a third axle, an additional set of wheels and gave it the same configuration as Mercedes-Benz’s G63 AMG 6×6. All six 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels are rolled in Cooper LTZ 275/55/20 tires.

This bad boy is powered by a beefy GM 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine delivering 430 horsepower. The engine is connected to a six-speed automatic gearbox with tap-shift control powering all six wheels.

A heavy-duty chassis, a high-low drive system, revamped suspension system, and bigger brakes for increased stopping power ensure the six-wheeled Defender is more than just a wild show car.

Kahn plans to produce the 6-wheeler, along with the possibility of a pickup version as well.  Although pricing has yet to be revealed, it’s likely the 6×6 will carry a base price of over $200,000.
