2013 A Kahn Design Land Rover Defender Military


(from Land Rover Press Release)  Expanding the appeal of the Land Rover Defender is not entirely new territory to the man who embodies a brand and its identity.

Having received much acclaim for fashioning his first Defender in November 2012, Afzal Kahn has given his signature stamp to a military dalliance with the Defender.

Under the Kahn expedition vehicles umbrella, the 'Chelsea truck company' introduces the aptly titled Defender wide body Military edition.

And the principal British designer, who prides himself on the professional pseudonym ‘The Road is my Catwalk’, delivers this high-impact edition with such clout; it is safe to say that this military grey game-changer would not look out of place with London, Chelsea or New York centric drivers, rock climbers and off-roaders at the helm, nor would it look weary as troops speed into combat –feeling almost unstoppable with excellent ground clearance, grip levels and good axle articulation.

To match the Iconic feel of the underlying car, the Kahn Defender is adorned with a brand new utilitarian and aggressive looking wide track arch kit which consists of lightweight extended wide wheel wings with integrated vents, 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, crosshair headlights, Kahn prototype wing blades, Kahn prototype tailgate badge and Kahn oval tailgate badge.

But there’s more to this vehicle than just an exterior styling package. Measures that protect passengers are also available. The team at A. Kahn Design can install layers of armored plates underneath the bodywork of the Defender, without having to modify the exterior of the car. All of the windows can also be replaced with special bulletproof glass similar to glass used to protect government officials. One of the major advantages to the glass installed by A Kahn Design is that it is thinner and lighter but still offers significant protection and improved light transition to the interior.

Furthermore, a commitment to cultivate the vehicle ensures a state of the bullet-proof glass, much lighter than type of glass used to protect world statesmen is also available, ensuring maximum protection.

The Kahn Defender also scores profoundly with its luxurious cabin, there’s enough space in there to place all your belongings and then-some!

And once you've pounded through a hard day’s work, or driven through rugged terrain - you really want to ride home in a comfortable bespoke seat.

The company philosophy is to always give the customers what they want, so Afzal Kahn could for example, design you a vehicle with full colour change (to a colour of your choice) and an interior akin to, let’s say, your favourite leather reclining chair in your living room. Customers could also change the colour of the clock, or ask for anything else, the world is their oyster, so to speak.

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 8”x16” 1948 Defender wheels are finished in matte black 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 1948 Defender wheels are synonymous with elegance and innovation.

A. Kahn Design is for the individual who will not submit to a life of uniformity and who will only accept perfection. Dedicated to the creation of luxury bespoke vehicles, we redesign the ordered monotony of mass produced vehicles and rebuild them into individually tailored creations.
