The Flying Huntsman family made its world debut this week at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and to help kick off the launch is this six-wheeled monster. A four-wheeled version called the 105 Longnose (shown below) is also at the Swiss show, and will likely prove the more popular option among buyers only because it's the one that will actually fit in most garages. At present, the Flying Huntsman variants are still concepts but production of both is planned.
It’s the 6x6 that we’re most interested in, however. Officially labeled a “Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6x6”, the vehicle is powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 sourced from General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] and tuned to deliver 430 horsepower. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and powers all six wheels thanks to a number of drivetrain upgrades including multiple locking differentials.

There’s no word on pricing but a hefty premium over the 105 Longnose’s 125,000 (approximately $192,000) starting price is expected. From there, A. Kahn Design offers up an almost infinite list of options including armor protection up to the B7 standard.
Beyond this 110 WB 6x6 and the 105 Longnose, A. Kahn Design is considering additional Flying Huntsman variants including a pickup. The company is also looking at more powerful engines, one of which being considered is the Ford Motor Company’s [NYSE:F] 5.0-liter V-8 found in the Mustang.
