The 2.4 TDCI Khan Land Rover Defender we saw earlier may look more modern and cooler than the standard car, but if you want the hardcore version, you should start saving some money because Kahn and Chelsea Truck Company (CTC) are currently working on another Defender-sourced beast.
Called the Huntsman Longnose 105, the modified hardcore SUV promises to perfectly combine Kahn’s sublime style with the Dakar race bred performance technology from CTC in a package that will let you speechless.

Based on the Land Rover Defender 90, the company will increase its wheelbase to 105 inches, hence the Longnose name, while adding those bolt-on body-widening panels in the sides. The pack will also change the front bumper and grille a bit too, while also adding extra lights, tuned suspension, vented tailpipe exit mud flaps (for the uninitiated this means that the exhaust tips are integrated in the rear mud flaps), side steps and a choice of 16- or 18-inch wheels.

The interior will be garnished with with hand trimmed racing seats, sport steering wheel wrapped in leather, aluminum pedals, custom dials and even a rollcage. Optionals include sat nav, 20-inch rims, privacy glass, tweed trim detailing and a choice of luxury floor and headlining materials.

Last but not least, the Longnose Defender will be fitted with a massive 6.2-liter V8 engine, probably a GM engine crate, making 550 bhp sent to the wheels via a 6-speed electronic gearbox and uprated diffs.

Check the teaser photos bellow to see how the beast will look when ready.
