The Land Rover Defender is quite perfect in its standard format, and yet plenty of customizers have made a name for themselves tweaking the beloved off-roader. Kahn Design is one such house. The British tuner is constantly thinking outside the box (for better or for worse), and the Flying Huntsman 105 Defender Pickup is the latest result of this creative thinking.
Reminiscent of the old Suzuki X-90, this pickup is based on the Defender 90, adding over 15 inches to the wheelbase and front end, along with increasing the width of the vehicle by six inches. The entire vehicle has been revamped from the new fenders and wheel arches to the grille and hood. 18-inch wheels wrapped in off-road tires round out the exterior aesthetics, while a reliable 2.2-liter diesel drives power to all four wheels through the six-speed automatic transmission. We’re not quite sure how we feel about the design (particularly the extended hood and small truck bed), but it is an interesting concept to say the least. Kahn plans on releasing the model in the coming year.
