This Brand New 6-Wheeler Stretch Land Rover Defender Puts The ‘Monster’ Into ‘Monster Truck’

Forget about the stretch hummer or limo - because this year it’s all about the extended Land Rover Defender!

With production of the 70-year-old iconic vehicle being stopped later this year, one British firm decided to do something to remember their all-time fave.

And Kahn Design has certainly come up with the goods.

Their three-axel, six-wheeler monster off-roader version of the truck may cost upwards of £100,000.

But it’s capable of carrying five passengers, and a whole host of machinery.

The “Flying Huntsman” - as it’s been dubbed - has essentially had the tail of a pick-up version grafted onto the back of a top-of-the-range long wheelbase model. 

And it’s going on show this weekend at an exhibition in Peterborough. 

Kahn Design CEO Afzal Kahn said the decision of Jaguar Land Rover to stop making its landmark vehicle was an “absolute tragedy.”

But he said his new creation would hopefully fill the gap in the market - and rival the £370,000 Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6.

“If the Germans can do it then why can’t the British? We are a fully independent British car company and it is an exciting time,” he said.

“It is a shame that Land Rover is stopping production but there are plenty around for us to work on. These days it’s not what you wear, it’s what you drive,” he added.

The 2.2-litre Diesel six-speed manual will go on sale for around £100,000, and Kahn hopes to sell 25 of the beauties each year.
