Official Press Release by A. Kahn Design:

The Chelsea Truck Company has transformed the Land Rover Defender into a 2.2 TDCI XS 110 Wide Track like never seen before.

The seven-passenger Fungus Green Land Rover Defender 2.2 TDCI XS 110 – Chelsea Wide Track has been adorned with a wealth of rugged and luxurious amenities that set it apart from your average Defender.

From rigorous conceptual planning, through to the entire build process, the Chelsea Truck Company team had to rework substantial aspects of the exterior and interior of the SUV to add a classy, unique style that epitomises luxury.

To begin with, the complete exterior is more rugged and exclusive than ever before. The front fascia has been significantly altered with a new X-Lander front grille in Fungus Green and Old England White.

A new bumper with integrated lighting, cross-hair military headlights, bumper sump guard mesh hood vents to help cool the engine are notable additions. Front and rear wide wing arches, a contrast roof in Old England White and the Chelsea Truck Company spare wheel cover proudly flaunt its British roots.

A set of commanding 1948 Defend wheels in satin black, in an “8.0 x 16″ fitment with 265x75x16 tyres, and liquid red painted brake callipers adorn the exterior. A twin crosshair exhaust system, 2” suspension lift, up rated gas shocks/steering damper, welcome ambient illumination package and hard- wearing mud flaps lend a tough look to the SUV.

Whilst dark-tinted privacy glass leaves onlookers guessing what is on the inside, occupants are treated to a wealth of custom tailored opulence.

The front and rear seats have been replaced with GTB sport units with quilted and perforated tan nappa leather. The centre glove box, passenger dashboard, grab handles, door panel inserts, instrument binnacle, rear door panel, roof headlining and sun visors are all upholstered to match.

The driver benefits from a Churchill time clock and speedo/rev counter facia in red, alpine satellite navigation system, door entry sill plates, rear cabin access LED lights, reverse camera, Kahn billet steering wheel and vented machined aluminium foot pedals. In addition, the rear floor space has been replaced with classic teak decking, including a transparent pod for the Alpine stereo amplifier.

Discreet Kahn branding completes the package and leaves no-one in any doubt as to the source of this elegant functional design and meticulous attention to detail. You will never look at a Defender in the same way again.

Just like all vehicles from The Chelsea Truck Company, the new Land Rover Defender XS10 can be custom tailored to a customer’s specification, both exterior and interior.
