The Land Rover has always been known as a rugged all-terrain vehicle with an incredible history. But what happens when iconic designer Afzal Kahn gets a hold of one? I’ll tell you what happens, something amazing.
Laid throughout the Land Rover Defender Tweed Edition is “the Champagne of fabrics”, Harris Tweed – the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament. Hand woven by the islanders on the Isles of Harris, Lewis, Uist and Barra in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, using local wool, Harris Tweed is one of the most traditional and rustic of fabrics and the fabric of choice for the most discerning of clients – and the interior of this vehicle transcends all things automotive because this is all about making a fashion statement.
The Kahn defender is also equipped with a brand new aggressive looking wide track arch kit that consists of lightweight extended wide wing wheel arches with integrated vents, stainless steel front grill with embossed Kahm feature, vented headlight surrounds, side vents with mesh, bonnet vents with mesh, clear rear light lenses, clear side repeaters, clear front light lenses, LED B6 headlights, Kahn prototype wing blades, Kahn prototype tailgate badge, and Kahn oval tailgate badge.
Other bespoke touches include: red Kahn rev counter, red Kahn Churchill time clock, black piano wood centre dash surround, red seat belts, aluminum machined pedals, front and rear racing seats in black quilted nappa leather with Harris Tweed Inserts and silver contrast stitching, centre glove box in black quilted nappa leather and grey alcantara with red and silver contrast stitching, instrument binnacle in grey alcantara with red and silver contrast stitching, dashboard in black nappa leather and grey alcantara with red and silver contrast stitching, roof lining in grey alcantara with Harris Tweed inserts and red contrast stitching, sun visors in grey alcantara with Harris Tweed inserts and red contrast stitching and door trims in black quilted nappa leather and grey alcantara with silver contrast stitching.
