The original Blade Runner was a beautifully dark look at the possible future relationships between humans and robots. It took place in 2019 where robots, called replicants, had become indistinguishable from humans and had a penchant for violence. Because of their advancements, they were only allowed to operate on colonies in space. In the movie, Harrison Ford played a Blade Runner, a specialized police officer charged with hunting down and eliminating any Replicants who made it to earth. In the 2017 reboot, Blade Runner 2049 ($TBA), Harrison Ford is joined by Ryan Gossling who plays a modern day Blade Runner. Other cast notables include Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto, and Edward James Olmos. Blade Runner 2049 will be hitting theaters on Oct 6, 2017.

The Defender 4×4 “The End Edition” By Project Kahn ($86K) is exactly as the name implies. It commiserates, or better yet celebrates the end of production of the storied Defender Brand. The End Edition is a 2.2 TDCI XS 110 that seats seven. As with most Kahn designs, this truck has some major updates. Some of which include the usual Kahn touches like black quilted leather with grey harris tweed on the interior seats, and exterior Kahn badging throughout the vehicle. The Land Rover Defender, which does not meet U.S. federal safety or emission standards, cannot be lawfully operated in the United States. I'll throw a seatbelt in one of these bad boys to get into the country.
