You can do a lot in a Land Rover, whether it’s conquering rugged terrain or hitting Whole Foods on your way home from the kids’ soccer practice. But the example you see here falls squarely in the first camp. It’s a tough beast of a custom job from Project Kahn, the UK-based company that’s responsible for a lot of handsome work. And here they’ve turned a regular Land Rover Defender into an all-black, six-wheeled, four-cab pickup truck with all the bells and plenty of whistles. Let’s take a look.
Those six wheels aren’t just for show. This thing’s a 6x6 that would shake its head in pity at 4x4s if it had a head and wasn’t just a compelling amalgam of auto parts.
It measures nearly three feet longer and six inches wider than a normal Defender, and has been outfitted with a full range of mechanical, styling and performance upgrades.
The truck’s sporting a six-speed automatic transmission and 2.2-liter diesel engine, so you'll have no problem rumbling through the neighborhood. (Assuming you are in the UK, Australia, India or other countries where right-hand drive is pretty standard.)
The bed is a rugged option for transporting cargo, but with those built-in ledges, you can also just sit down to enjoy an al fresco ride.
Red leather gives the custom interior a unique look, and those sport seats will ensure you stay put while bumping over uneven terrain.
The limited run of trucks is priced around $225,000. All things considered—especially the six-wheeled Land Rover part—that seems reasonable. To learn more, or to secure one for yourself, visit Kahn’s website.
