The London Motor Show Commissions Kahn Design

Kahn Design are to design an exciting one-off bespoke version of the Land Rover Defender at The London Motor Show 2017 on 4-7 May.

The exclusive car will be designed and built in-house by Kahn and will be on display in Battersea Park throughout the weekend. Kahn Design aims to pay the ultimate tribute to a truly iconic vehicle.

In line with Kahn’s successful track record in vehicle design, the principal British designer will pay homage to the world’s most recognisable off-roader by bringing together subtle influences to recreate the Defender with a modern feel.

The coach-built Vengeance Volante, which was recently unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show, will be making its UK debut at The London Motor Show. The unique model will take pride of place alongside the Ultimate Defender and the Chelsea Truck Company Black Hawk Edition.

Kahn Design is a discriminating purveyor of the world’s most accomplished supercars and bespoke vehicles integrating luxury, style and performance. Kahn Design have a prestige showroom in Chelsea, London.

Alec Mumford, Chairman of The London Motor Show, said: “It is a pleasure to have Kahn Design at The London Motor Show this year. Creating a truly outstanding tribute to one of the world’s most iconic cars, this immersive display is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser in Battersea Park. It goes without saying the Kahn Design’s unique and bespoke builds optimise the very best of British ingenuity.”

Mr Kahn, chief designer of Kahn Design said: “For The London Motor Show 2016, I designed a vehicle that celebrates the history and unique personality of the Defender. My designs are known for their attention to detail, so I do not want this Defender to be any different.

“This will be a fitting tribute to one of the world’s best loved vehicles and I would encourage Defender owners and enthusiasts alike to come and visit us at the show and to visit my Kings Road boutique in Chelsea.”
