Kahn Land Rover Defender Concept 17 Wide Body

Kahn Design have done it again, they have taken my all time favourite car and given it a make over worthy for the most iconic British car ever made. What I love about the Land Rover Defender is it’s simplicity, the fact that the hinges are on the outside of the doors and the exposed rivets all over the body panelling. The Kahn Design Defender has been fitted with an aggressive looking wide track arch kit which consists of lightweight extended wide wing wheel arches with integrated vents, stainless steel front grille with embossed Kahn feature, vented headlight surrounds, side vents with mesh, bonnet vents with mesh, clear rear light lenses, clear side repeaters, clear front light lenses, LED B6 headlights and Kahn prototype wing blades. So as you can see this is far from a standard Defender.

The interior of a Defender is notoriously simple and boring, which it is supposed to be but Kahn has taken it to another level by using hand woven Harris Tweed made by the the islanders on the Isles of Harris, Lewis, Uist and Barra in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, using local wool. This is what I admire about Kahn they use British products to produce beautifully made customised cars.

Kahn wheels sit perfectly on any vehicle, conveying the essence of the vehicle’s identity. Created using state-of-the art manufacturing and materials technology, the 18” 1983 Defender wheels are finished in the colour of your choice and fit all original centre caps. With simple clean lines, soft organic surfaces on the edge of the spoke and a purposeful mechanical centre, the 1983 Defender wheels are synonymous with elegance and innovation.
