For Sale: 2013 Land Rover Defender pickup, modified by Kahn Design

Old-school Land Rover Defenders are regarded as one of the coolest proper off-roaders around. Kahn Design, based in the UK, has a nicely-enhanced Aintree Green example up for sale.

Based on a 2013 Defender 110 pickup ute, this example has been dressed in the full Kahn package. It features a stainless steel bonnet and side vents, a unique front bumper bar with daytime running lights, and an X-Lander grille.

The headlights showcase a fashionable shadow chrome theme. Kahn also fit some bulging wheel arches to give the off-roader an even tougher stance, while accommodating 20-inch Mondial alloy wheels that wear 275/55 tyres.

Unfortunately, no work has been done under the bonnet for the sake of improved performance. This means the standard 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel is left with its 90kW/360Nm output.

Inside is surprisingly sporty, featuring special Sports GTB bucket seats covered in luxurious quilted and perforated leather. There’s also tough floor mats, machined pedals, a bespoke steering wheel, and various leather trimmings around the dash.

Kahn is asking £32,875 for the 4×4 beast. Considering the amount of work that has gone into it, and the fact that it will one day be a highly desirable collector’s item, especially in this good condition, it seems like a pretty good buy.
