TORONTO, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Urban Warrior, creators of unique SUV's based on the iconic Land Rover Defender 110, announces that it will build a 670 hp version of the Kahn Design Flying Huntsman 6x6, a modified Land Rover Defender that was introduced at the 2016 Geneva International Motorshow. This build will continue the sales and marketing agreement with A. Kahn Design of Bradford, England, to sell upgrade components for Land Rovers and Jeeps. "We're very pleased to extend the Urban Warrior technology and drivetrain elements that we've developed for the Urban Warrior to the Flying Huntsman 6x6 and create an all-new vehicle and driving experience for the North American market," said Sean Hyland, president. "Now we can back up the tough military look of this unique vehicle with breathtaking power and performance."
The Urban Warrior Flying Huntsman 6x6 will be equipped with all of the custom and luxury touches that customers have become accustomed to seeing in other Urban Warrior 110's, including a supercharged 670-hp 5.0L Ford Coyote V8, 6-speed automatic transmission with shift-on-the-fly transfer case, limited slip differentials, upgraded suspension, wheels, and tires, a premium sound system that includes navigation, rear-view camera and Bluetooth®, upgraded soundproofing and carpeting, heated and cooled leather Recaro® seats, and leather-upholstered surfaces. The first Urban Warrior version of the Flying Huntsman is expected to be delivered in late 2016.
Along with their own version of the Flying Huntsman 6x6, Urban Warrior continues to pursue its vision of the iconic Land Rover Defender. Using latest-model Defenders, Urban Warrior removes the 2.2L, 122hp diesel engine and 6-speed manual transmission that comes with it, and replaces it with a 5.0L, 435 hp Ford V8, and 6-speed automatic, with shift-on-the fly transfer case. Upgraded suspension, wheels and tires complete the base package and customers can choose from a wide array of options and luxury touches.
