While Land Rover is working on the new-gen Defender, Kahn Design and Chelsea Truck Company have presented their own take on the classic SUV.
The Defender has been turned into a four-door pickup truck and painted in a Volcanic Rock Satin finish.
The front end of this Defender sports a new bumper with integrated DRLs and shadow chrome details, and an X-Lander grille. Complementing the look are the reworked bonnet, satin black roof, additional lights and new, 9×16-inch Satin Black Defend 68 wheels shod in 285/75 tires. Cross-hair exhaust outlets, toughened mud flaps and a 2-inch (50.8 mm) lift kit complete the exterior package.
With new front seats, a Satin Silver steering wheel, foot pedals in machined aluminum and other handcrafted details, the interior of this tuned Defender has definitely become more luxurious. Other touches include the black leather trim, quilted and perforated center glove box, and new Churchill time clock integrated into the dashboard.
Chelsea Truck Company says this murdered-out Land Rover Defender left the factory floor in 2015, and it’s powered by a 2.2-liter diesel engine paired to a manual transmission. The RHD example shows 8,500 miles (13,679 km) on the odometer, and it’s currently on sale with an asking price of £69,999 ($89,763/€78,603), or nearly £6,000 ($7,694/€6,737) more than the entry-level Range Rover Sport in the United Kingdom.
