Flying Huntsman Long Nose Widebody
22nd Oct 2017
The “Long Nose” project is the culmination of a vision to take the iconic Land Rover Defender and further enhance the aesthetic, performance and handling of one of the very best four wheel drive vehicles to have been produced.
When Afzal Kahn learned that production was due to finish he immediately commissioned his design team to present ideas that would be a fitting tribute and pay homage to a vehicle that has firmly cemented its place in British automotive and manufacturing history.
The result was the Long Nose, a series of Defender-based vehicles which benefited from extensive coach-building enhancements. The most ambitious of these models was the Long Nose Widebody, which was both lengthened and widened, so much so that a third windscreen wiper needed to be added.
