Kahn Land Rover Defender Concept - Web Exclusive

The concept is a chunky visualization of how a future Defender model could look.

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Land Rover will have a new Defender DC100 concept at this year’s Frankfurt auto show, come these illustrations from British tuning house Project Kahn.

The concept is a chunky visualization of how a future Defender model (not currently sold in the US) could look. As the descendant of the original Land Rover model from the 1950s, people are very protective of the Defender, so Land Rover is aware it must tread lightly when updating such a traditional favorite. However, the DC100 is a radical step forward that will win new fans but could lose some purists.

That said, Project Kahn has created some fun treatments for the concept that they propose would be powered by a Cosworth version of the Defender’s current 2.4-liter diesel engine.

Afzal Kahn doesn’t propose the Kahn Defender would be a people carrier. Instead, he’s envisioned a speedier, hard-core off-roader that's unstoppable in the rough.

Each rendition features Kahn Design’s 22-inch RS wheels, while inside will be bespoke, matched to an exterior color, perhaps, or your favorite shirt…

While the DC100 remains a concept and Land Rover is emphasizing it’s seeking opinions from existing customers before proceeding with the design, it certainly offers a fun insight into the future of this off-roading stalwart.
