2012 Land Rover Defender by Project Kahn: Official Pictures and Details

While Land Rover announced its next generation of the iconic Defender, the DC100 Concept, for Frankfurt Motor Show Debut, the design team led by principal British designer Afzal Kahn, have already started imagining ways of enhancing and personalizing the potential replacement for the automaker’s most famous model through some photoshop wizardry.

These designs feature the kind of treatment that makes Project Kahn’s bespoke vehicles a favourite amongst discerning customers – and with the engine set to be taken care of by Cosworth, expect the Defender’s 2.4 litre diesel engine to top the current 122hp/90kW and 360Nm of torque with 90 percent of peak power on tap from less than 2,200rpm to over 4,350rpm.

The tuning company imagined four different variants of the Land Rover DC100. The first comes with a simple white paint job along with the tuning firm’s trademark multispoke alloy wheels finished in black.

In addition to the first proposal comes the second one, which builds upon the first adding a deep orange hue for the roof and some body trims parts such as front panel air vents and the mirrors, plus roof rails that lug a surfboard.

The third variant comes with a two-tone color theme along with the addition of alloy wheels. Beside this it also features roof rails and the relocation of the spare tire from the rear hatch to the roof.

And the last one, one of the most interesting project of the four, is a military themed DC100 with a small pickup truck bed.

And if you have heard and seen a great deal from the Kahn group during the preceding weeks and months and you want to see us in the flesh – head down to the Frankfurt motor show and stay tuned for new details and pictures.
