Kahn Design reveals £55k Defender 'The End' edition

Chelsea Truck Company and Kahn Design launch dramatic Defender final edition as Land Rover ends production

As the fuss dies down over Land Rover ending 67 years of Defender production, Kahn Design has taken steps to prolong the legend with its The End Defender edition.

Created by the Chelsea Truck Company and sold through Kahn Design, it's likely to be the last pumped-up special edition of the 4X4 workhorse we'll see. Kahn is promising buyers that after experiencing the £55,995 machine they "will never look at a Defender in the same way again".

Based on the seven-seat 110 XS Station Wagon, 'The End' gets a unique exterior design with a Santorini Black paint scheme, wing extensions front and rear, extra cooling vents and a chunky new front-end. The Land Rover badging has also been replaced with Kahn's own design.

20-inch satin black alloys and a twin exhaust system feature outside, while uprated gas shocks and slightly raised suspension help give it extra presence, too. As you'd expect from Kahn Design, a power upgrade kit is also offered which remaps the 2.2-litre diesel engine.

Dark tinted windows keep the cabin hidden, but step inside and you'll see some striking new quilted seats and a distinctly un-Defender-like chrome steering wheel. Quilted headlining, sat-nav and a host of trim options complete the upgrades.

Can a Land Rover Defender ever be worth £55k? Let us know in the comments section below...
