This Custom Land Rover Defender Is the Military-Inspired 6×6 Convertible We Didn’t Know We Needed
Check. This. Thing. Out.
Mercedes-Benz says it will build only 99 of its wondrous and ludicrously expensive Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet 6×6 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.
We can understand the appeal, because we felt like rock stars wheeling around town in the similarly lifted Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4².
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 6×6 soft top, but Chelsea promises “more information will be released in the coming weeks and months ahead.”
