View From The Press: Real-life Tonka? It’s the Kahn Defender

published on 26th March 2015
In article for BBC Top Gear, Stephen Dobie gives us his take on the latest Land Rover Defender to have been given the Kahn treatment.

Internet commenting fingers at the ready: another innocent Land Rover has had the Kahn tuning treatment.

It's actually a used example of the loadbay-equipped Landie, four years old and with over 28,000 miles having passed beneath its knobbly tyres.

How well it wears those miles depends on how much a stickler you are for authenticity, because it's fair to say it's running a little way from standard.


Highlights? Bigger wheel arches, a meaner front grille and a generally quite Tonka toy approach to body panels. The Keswick Green colour scheme would independently be subtle, but yellow wheels and fascia inserts ensure the overall look is anything but.
