Mercedes-Benz says it will build only 99 of its wondrous and ludicrously expensive Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet 6x6 Cabriolets, which might leave a few desirous billionaires unable to peel back the soft convertible top covering the back seat of their own luxury-enhanced military truck.

Fortunately, the geniuses at Kahn Design's Chelsea Truck Company are prepared to help. Kahn is planning a soft top variant of its Land Rover Defender-based Flying Huntsman 110 6X6 Double Cab Pick Up and Wide Body models.

You will recall that the sold-out Mercedes listed for $800,000 when it was snapped up by anxious oligarchs, which sets a pretty high pricing standard for Chelsea's Land Rover-based version.

In addition to its Defenders, Chelsea also customizes other vehicles too, like the Jeep Wrangler and even cars like the Aston Martin DB9.

No further details are available on the Defender 6x6 soft top, but Chelsea promises "more information will be released in the coming weeks and months ahead."
