Get a new Defender with a darker look.
Kahn and Chelsea Truck Company are familiar names in Land Rover Defender tuning in the United Kingdom, and the company is starting to turn its attention to the new generation of the off-roader with the Land Rover Defender 110 Chelsea Truck Launch Edition.
For now, the tweaks are fairly minor and amount to just some revised styling. There's nothing nearly as wild here as Chelsea's stretched, six-wheel version of the old-school Defender. The modern crossover wears black trim, tinted glass, and 22-inch RS forged wheels. Inside, the company fits a mix of quilted and perforated leather. While the modifications to this Defender are small, Chelsea Truck Company is developing more parts for tweaking the new model.
Kahn is selling this Defender for £69,999 ($87,876 at current exchange rates). In addition to the tuner's upgrades, it also has the Meridian Sound System, 12-way heated, electric memory seats, and sliding panoramic roof.

Deliveries of the Defender 110 are finally starting in the US, and prices start at $49,900 (plus a $1,025 destination charge). Americans get two engine choices: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 296 horsepower (221 kilowatts) or a mild-hybrid-assisted 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six making 395 hp (295 kW). Europe's diesel choices aren't currently available in America. The five-door model is available three seating configurations, including a standard two-row layout, a version with a front bench, and a 5+2 arrangement with a third row.
In the future, spy shots tell us that Land Rover is working on a V8 powertrain for the Defender. Current indications suggest that it would use the 5.0-liter supercharged eight-cylinder from other Land Rover models.
Land Rover Defender 110 Chelsea Truck Launch Edition
Chelsea Truck Company is making a statement of intent announcing that the dream of owning an uncompromisingly designed 2020 Defender by the UK’s most avant-garde designer is now a reality.
Entitled the Land Rover Defender 110 Chelsea Truck Company Launch Edition, the changes are subtle, the kind that would appeal to the younger Land Rover centric demographic.
Craftsmanship and quality is paramount, therefore, the elegance is visible across the silhouette of the vehicle thanks to the addition of 22” RS forged wheels, privacy tinted glass and a number of Black Pack components which take the vehicle to another level.
Inside is where the real magic will unfold. The Project Kahn First Edition 2020 Defender will feature a number of special quilted and perforated soft leather interior packages.
As with all Project Kahn vehicles, customers can commission their own colour scheme – the creative possibilities are endless and at £69,999 it is one of the best and valuable Defenders in the market.
Please note, the plush interior and all individual components are available to purchase from our new e-commerce web site: www.projectkahn.com
We can also reveal that a comprehensive styling package for the 2020 Defender will be available in due course. More details will be revealed in due course with all the Chelsea Truck Company parts and accessories available to buy via www.projectkahn.com
