2014 A Kahn Chelsea Longnose news, pictures, specifications, and information

Probably the Fastest Land Rover in the World

The Chelsea Widetrack Defender is already established as a market leading style icon, so it is difficult for the casual observer to see how the Chelsea Truck Company could improve on this winning formula.

Here is the news, they just did and the result is probably the fastest Land Rover on the planet.

A. Kahn Design, the company behind the design development of the successful Chelsea Wide track series, has taken the established concept and lit the blue touch paper. When you take Kahn Design's sublime style and couple it wîth Paris-Dakar race bred performance technology, the result is a heady cocktail of high octane show and go.

This awe-inspiring visual expression of exquisite magnificence is matched only by the supreme performance afforded by honed mechanical perfection. A 495 bhp V8 powerhouse driving through a 6 speed electronic gearbox and uprated diffs mean that this is no boulevard cruising soft roader! This vehicle combines outstanding visual presence wîth breathtaking on and off road performance. A new race derived braking system ensures that it will always stop just as well as it goes.

The exterior pack comes complete wîth strong visual enhancements such as tough new front bumper wîth integral LED lamps and sump guard, plus vented tailpipe exit mud flaps and a choice of 16' or 18' wheels. The pack also contains convenience upgrades like the very useful side steps. Body styling boasts the signature Chelsea wide arches, crosshair headlamps and rugged new X-Lander Grille.

Vital Stats
Engine : 8-cylinder
Power: 495 hp

6-speed Automatic
The interior is a long time customer favourite of Chelsea Defenders and the cabin of the Longnose doesn't disappoint. Hand trimmed racing seats help the occupant feel instantly at home. The sport §teering wheel, drilled pedals and custom dials all contribute to the responsive nature and tactile feel of this high performance thoroughbred.


Further avenues for personalisation exist wîth an options list of that includes integrated satellite navigation system, 20' wheels, privacy glass, tweed trim detailing and a choice of luxury floor and headlining materials.

There are only 49 ÚK examples planned of the Chelsea Longnose, which will be produced by A Kahn Design's Coach Building division. They will all be based around brand new Land Rover Defenders and retain an uprated version of the supremely rigid Land Rover chassis. Initial production will be based on the Defender 90, though there is rumoured to be a 110-derived variant in development.

Because of its rarity, this vehicle is certain to become an instant collector's item and the £89,950 price tag is surely superb value for entry into this most exclusive of clubs. A place behind the wheel of the world's fastest production Land Rover is a prize that will only be bestowed on a very lucky few. Stay lucky!
