The £70,000 Bespoke Land Rover Defender Pickup
Ready for the apocalypse?
Before the next generation Land Rover defender is released, Kahn Design and Chelsea Truck have brought this out.
This is their creation to take over the world. It is a standard 2015, four door Defender 110 pickup painted in Volcanic Rock Satin. The front has an all new revised bumper with integrated daytime running LED’s, chrome and the X-Lander grille. Along with this, there is the reimagined bonnet, additional lights and the stunning 9x16 inch satin black Defend 68 wheels surrounded by 285/75 tyres.
Round the back there are cross-hair exhausts, stronger front and rear mud flaps and a 2 inch all round lift kit. Inside, the Defender has all new racing bucket seats, a utilitarian style satin silver steering wheel, aluminium pedals which all add up to make the interior very luxurious. To add to the modernisation of the Defender, Khan and Chelsea design have added black leather trim, quilted leather on the seats and a classy new Churchill time clock integrated into the dash.
The Defender is powered by the standard 2.2L diesel engine with a manual transmission. This example has 8,500 miles on the clock and is currently for sale in the UK for £69,999 ($89,763). This is around £6k more than an entry level Range Rover Sport, but that wouldn’t stop me choosing this over a Range Rover.
