This is what you can do to your Defender pickup
This classic Defender pickup 4×4 has been given a widebody kit that’s riveted onto the existing panels. British tuner ‘Kahn’ has also installed their custom X-Lander grille, fender vent mesh and a stainless steel hood with a big bulge on top of it.
The vehicle rides on new 1939 Defend Retro Dish wheels that have been painted in bright yellow, along with the steel protective plate at the front. This is in stark contrast to the overall paintjob, done in a traditional Keswick Green tone that Defenders are well known for.
Around the back, Kahn installed one of their twin crosshair exhaust systems that are integrated into the upper part of the mud flaps. As for the cabin, it’s unashamedly sporty, as twin racing-style Sports GTB bucket seats with integrated headrest have been installed. The seats are covered in quilted black leather and have a special tread embossed down the middle.
The Kahn-customized Defender pickup also has heavy-duty front & rear floor mats, billet steering wheel, machined aluminum pedals and detailing in Alcantara. Under the bonnet is a 2.4 TDCI 90 horsepower diesel engine. This conversion and the donor Defender can be yours on order. Be prepared to pay close to £28k or about RM180,000 before taxes, permits and shipping. Best you find a donor Defender right here in Malaysia and I will introduce you to a specialist who will be able to give almost the same conversion for a lot less money.
