Project Kahn has never been ashamed in rolling out tuning packages for some of the most powerful cars in the world. Sure, they do a lot of work on Land Rovers - more than we’d like to count, actually - but every so often, they go the Italian route and work on something a little more exotic.
The UK-based tuner’s latest project involves a Ferrari California , one that has been given numerous aesthetic improvements, including a set of 21" matte black forged Monza wheels in the front and 22" versions at the back. On top of that, Project Kahn also dressed up the interior with new accessories, most notable of which are new Dayton seats in black with white piping and stitching, a carbon fiber dashboard, a new carbon steering wheel, and a touched up instrument panel and infotainment system, among other things.
Not one to leave the performance department alone, Project Kahn added a new sports suspension system and a modified version of Ferrari’s own F1-Trac traction control system. Both these improvements were done to give the California better balance, handling, and to improve fuel consumption and emissions, critical elements for a supercar that boasts of a 4.3-liter V8 engine delivering 454 horsepower and 358 lb/ft of torque.
Of course these changes are nothing compared to the package provided by Wheelsandmore. Don’t get us wrong, Project Kahn is a tremendous tuning firm, but the extra 46 HP and 168 lb-ft of torque provided by Wheelsandmore gives their package a little more bang for our buck. Plus, the Ferrari California ’Dreamin’ includes lacquered selected serial parts and a double-line black race stripe, black plasma coated end tips, and discreet carbon elements at the front and rear bumpers. Other additions include side skirts and a carbon boot lid spoiler, among other things.
So which Ferrari California package do you prefer?
