kahn end edition LR defender 2.2 TDCI 01

Kahn has come up with a sign-off edition of the Land Rover Defender, which ended series production earlier this year after 68 years. The End Edition, as it’s called, is a run of 25 units of 2.2 TDCI XS 90 examples kitted out by the Chelsea Truck Company division.

The limited-edition Defender gets dressed up in this final outing. Exterior kit includes front and rear wide wings with integrated vents, exposed bolt apertures and 20-inch Mondial wheels finished in Volcanic Black and wrapped with 275/55 series tyres.

Also on, hard-wearing mud flaps, mesh hood vents, an X-Lander front grille as well as a new front bumper featuring integrated lighting and a sump guard. New mechanical bits consist of a suspension lift and a twin cross-hair exhaust system, and there’s also a new Kahn Power Upgrade unit, which increases power output.

As for the interior, front and rear GTB seats – in quilted and perforated leather with Harris Tweed inserts – replace the standard seats, and the design theme continues on to the centre glove box, dashboard, door panels and handles, instrument binnacle and headliner. Completing the cabin rework is a Churchill time clock, Kahn leather steering wheel, billet gear knob and machined aluminium foot pedals.

Last doesn’t mean cheap. The End Edition Defender – which is available in right- and left-hand drive configurations -is priced at £49,999 (RM277,000), nearly double that of the Project Kahn LR Defender 110XS hard top version announced last December.
