Classic Overland makes a crazy 6×6 Land Rover Defender called the ‘White Rhino’

The Classic Overland White Rhino 6x6 Land Rover Defender

Classic Overland is a company that knows how to build one tough Land Rover, but its latest has taken things to a whole new level.

The Georgia, USA-based company is hopping on the 6×6 trend, and they’re taking it seriously.

Dubbed the ‘White Rhino’, the boxy truck started life out in South Africa where it was used to transport firefighters.

The truck originally had a V8 in it, but now that’s long gone and replaced with a 682hp (509kW) LT4 engine from GM.

That’s the same engine you’d find in a Camaro ZL1, C7 Corvette Z06, and a bunch of Cadillac models.

It’s even paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission now, too.


And as the name suggests, it has been painted in an icy white shade with black accents.

This includes its roof, snorkel, side steps, alloy wheels, and the big winch on the front.

And there’s plenty of matching metal plating on the hood to make it look even tougher.

Unfortunately, the company hasn’t shown us what the interior looks like, but promises it will be adorned in ‘premium leather’.

It better be, as the White Rhino won’t come cheap.

The company is asking $400,000 for the impressive 6×6.

Classic Overland Project Black Mamba

The White Rhino isn’t the first 6×6 the company has done.

Back in 2019, it created ‘Project Black Mamba’ – a similar build based on a factory-made Defender 110 6×6.

These factory-made 6×6 models were originally designed for the Australian army.

Project Black Mamba was sold for $315,000, so that gives you an idea on the price range for what a 6×6 Defender will set you back.
