Kahn Design

Kahn Design

Famed UK tuner Kahn Design has a new program for the Range Rover and for this one, they’re getting some assistance from a reliable friend: engine tuner Cosworth.

So yeah, there’s more than just cosmetic changes on this new Kahn-tuned bad boy.

Comprising of an exclusive body package that includes a Kahn Copper Metallic finish, Kahn’s magic touch was evident from the get-go. Among the added components are a number of parts finished in the RangeRover’s body color, including the rear diffuser, the RS front grille surround insert, door handles, and door mirrors. From there, Kahn installed an RS extended large upper roof wing, an RS front grille with a 3D mesh, an RS quad oval exhaust system, RS vented front and rear wheel arches with integrated front air dams, and RS vented rear, brake calipers finished in copper. Finishing off the exterior modifications are LED daytime running lights on the front wheel arches, a privacy tinted glass, Kahn enamel wing shields, and a new set of 22" satin black RS wheels with orange pin striping.

Moving to the interior, Kahn Design really went full throttle in putting a luxurious touch on the SUV. The diamond quilted center glove box is the first indication that the interior has been poshly dressed up. The center console has been finished in carbon fiber, while the clock bezel surround has been finished in Swarovski Diamonds. From there, the vented foot pedals have been machined in aluminum while the front and rear seats have been quilted and perforated in ivory leather with contrasting stitching. Meanwhile, the floor mats have been finished in black charcoal and the interior facia trim has a 3D Carbon finish. Kahn illuminated door entry sill plates in stainless steel round out the package, as does the Kahn orange rev counter, speedo, time clock, and fascia inserts.

Under the hood, Cosworth picked up the paces with a performance upgrade of the SUV’s 5.0-liter supercharged engine, increasing it from 500 horsepower to 555 horsepower and 600 lb/ft of torque and subsequently, improving its 0-60 mph time to just 4.5 seconds.

While the automotive world is now focused on the new generation Range Rover , the guys over at Kahn Design have unveiled yet another tuning package for the previous generation . The package is called the LE Edition and features a seductive mix of triple pearl white livery and invigorating performance.

The exterior package starts off with a front lower lip spoiler, a front bumper A-frame in matte pearl grey, front wheel arch led strips, a carbon RS front grille surround insert, an RS front grille with 3D mesh, and RS vented front wheel arches with integrated front and rear air dams. The passengers’ intimacy will be ensured by anti-reflective privacy tinted glass, while a carbon fiber trim will add a touch of aggression to the Range Rover . The tuner also added a new quad oval exhaust system, along with a new set of 22" Kahn RS 600 wheels finished in matte grey for a more powerful stance.

For the interior, the tuner has added perforated leather with carbon inserts and contrast silver stitch, a clock bezel surround finished with Swarovski diamonds, a diamond gear selector, speedo & rev counter fascia in silver, and vented foot pedals in machined aluminum.

Kahn Design is adding another snazzy tuning package to its lineup with the inclusion of modified Audi Q7 3.0 Diesel S-Line . The new Wide Body package includes some an extensive amount of exterior and interior updates, and can be yours for £61,875, or about $98,600 at the current exchange rates.

The exterior of the Audi glistens with a Glacier pearl white finish and aerodynamic modifications, including new front bumper arches, front bumper replacement wings with air vents, matte pearl grey front grille and bumper sections, a matte black rear diffuser, a large rear upper wing roof, a rear vented bumper, and stainless steel door entry sill plates. The headlamps feature LED daytime running lights, while the doors are equipped with privacy tinted glass. The SUV can be ordered with a new set of 22" Kahn RS-R wheels combined with brake calipers finished in liquid gold and an electronic lowering module. For the interior, the tuner added a red and white speedo & rev counter fascia and machined aluminum vented foot pedals. As always, additional interior modifications can be made per the customer’s request.

The Audi Q7 Quattro 3.0 Diesel S-Line by A. Kahn Design is powered by a 3.0-liter TDI diesel engine that delivers a total of 233 HP and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 8.4 seconds.

British tuner Kahn Design has probably built programs that run the whole gamut of Land Rover models. And with the success they’ve had, it’s hardly surprising that Kahn Design isn’t stopping any time soon. Next up on their list is the Land Rover Defender , or as they prefer to call it, the Concept 17 Defender.

Unlike most of their recent programs, Kahn Design took the curious route of releasing renderings of the project before it’s been completed. Nevertheless, you don’t doubt these guys, especially when it comes to projects like this. And true to form, they appear to have the goods locked, stocked, and ready to rock.

The aerodynamic kit includes plenty of new components, including a bespoke paint finish that can be bullet-proofed, a four-piece arch kit, new mud flaps, a spare wheel cover, a custom exhaust system, a customized interior, and a new set of 18" Kahn RS Defender wheels.

The final version of the Concept 17 Defender will be unveiled at a later date. For now, indulge yourselves in these rendering photos.

British tuner Kahn Design produces so many programs for a wide variety of vehicles that it’s safe to ask whether or not they know the concept of a ’holiday.’ Be that as it may, give these guys credit for always working out new ways to bring aftermarket goodies to auto enthusiasts.

For their latest piece of work, Kahn Design took the Ferrari 458 Italia Spider to give it its usual round-up of modifications. While no distinct modifications are noticeable from these pictures, the British tuner did say that their program will come with a variety of new components for the Italian supercar, including "front and rear sections, ceramic brakes, wing shields, upgraded F1 gearbox and yellow brake calipers." On top of that, the program also gets the usual custom bespoke interior, as well as a new set of 21" (front) and 22" (rear) wheels Monza forged wheels.

From the looks of things, the program might still be in its current development stages. But rest assured, if there’s one tuner that rarely disappoints, it’s Kahn Design. We’re confident that these guys have more up their sleeves for the beastly drop-top 458 Italia.

British tuner extraordinaire Kahn Design has never seen a Range Rover it didn’t fancy with a tuning program. In this particular example, Kahn brought another Range Rover Evoque] to its headquarters for a nice little aftermarket work. The result is the Evoque Dark Tungsten RS250.

Dressed in a body kit that has a plethora of new components, including 3D mesh inserts and vents on the front grille, the front and rear fascias, a matte black finished upper wing roof, copper details on the headlights, a lower boot lid spoiler, and a matte black finished rear diffuser. Matte black side vent surrounds are also part of the program, as is a matte black sump, copper-finished brake calipers, and last but certainly not least, a new set of 22" RS600 wheels with a matte grey finish and original center caps.

Inside, the Evoque Dark Tungsten RS250 was treated to some luxury goods too. The seats have been finished in quilted and perforated leather with options to use Alcantara inserts. Carbon fiber was used to finish the center console while Alcantara was used as a center dashboard trimming with contrast stitching. There’s also a special finish on the dash and custom floor mats rounding out the interior goodies.

The Range Rover Evoque Kahn Dark Tungsten RS250 is scheduled to be unveiled at the Carfest Show on August 25-26, 2012 in the UK where it will be presented by no less than BBC car guru Chris Evans. Watch out for it because there’s a chance you’re going to be mesmerized by Kahn Design’s latest pride and joy.

Now that Ferrari has officially unveiled the F12 Berlinetta , the world has sort of forgotten about the 599 GTB Fiorano , but Kahn Design hasn’t. They created a very cool tuning package based on the "old" GTB.

Their Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano F1 is painted in a nero daytona couture partnered with the a complete aerodynamic package. This package includes new front and rear sections, ceramic brakes, wing shields, an upgraded F1 gearbox, and yellow brake calipers. The tuner also added a new set of 9×21" front and 12×22" Monza forged wheels that can be finished in any color the customer chooses.

As usual, the interior is also highly customizable with a plethora of updates the tuner has at its disposal. They have also thrown in a new set of nero Daytona leather electric sports seats to tie in the exterior.

If you are interested, this Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano F1 can be yours for £88.875, about $140,000 at the current exchange rates.

If auto tuning was an actual Olympic event, British tuner Kahn Design would probably be the odds-on favorite to win the most gold medals by sheer quantity of programs alone. Don’t sleep on these guys though, because they’ve got top-class quality covered too.

For their latest offering, Azfal Kahn and his team decided to go the utilitarian route by releasing a new program for the Jeep Wrangler , called the Chelsea Truck CJ 300 Expedition Vehicle.

The most distinguishable element of the program for the Chelsea Truck CJ 300 is its military green paint finish, which pretty much gives away the underlying purpose of the vehicle. Moreover, a lot of intricate modifications were given to the Wrangler to ensure that it keeps true to its new looks, including the smoked headlights and indicators to go with LED daytime running lights. The front grille was also abjectly modified to give the Wrangler’s front profile a more menacing look while also getting some technical boost thanks to new openings on the valance and grille area, providing better airflow to the radiator, intercooler and brakes. etc. Over at the back, Kahn Design added a new enamel tailgate, cross hair exhausts in stainless steel, and a new 20" smoked black Kahn RS spare wheel.

Moving inside, the British tuner added heated perforated leather seats with matching stitching, aluminum pedals, and a red speedometer and rev counter fascia to complete the aesthetic overhaul for this off-road menace.

We know, we know. It caught us by surprise too. British tuner Kahn Design has a new project, except that this one doesn’t have anything to do with wheels.

What it is though is something that a lot of watch enthusiasts will surely enjoy: the Kahn GMT Timepiece.

Yeah, it’s a watch. Designed in the UK by Azfal Kahn himself and manufactured in Switzerland, the Kahn GMT Timepiece is the epitome of a watch that comes with a classic, no-frills style that embodies the company’s tuning reputation. The white face is finished in white and matches really well with the full soft leather strap that exudes that classic look we’re talking about.

It’s ideally suited to be worn as a casual watch of informal set-ups and it also has time zone references of just about every major city in the world, allowing you to keep tabs on just about every time zone there is.

All told, the Kahn GMT Timepiece makes for a dandy watch on your wrist, proving that the British tuner has far more skills than we thought they had.

The Aston Martin Rapide is regarded as the British automaker’s first venture into the four-door, luxury car segment. That being said, it’s not all that surprising that it’s become quite an attractive car for aftermarket companies, including British tuner Kahn Design .

Even if the Rapide is already considered one of the finest sports sedans in the world, the fact that you can fork over $200,000 for one means that you probably have enough loose change to get it fixed up even more. Kahn Design has you covered in that regard, thanks to a new program that gives the Rapide an edgier look all while retaining it’s classic and elegant profile. The British tuner added a slew of new components in the car, including mesh elements to the front bumper, aluminum billet bonnet vents, black brake calipers, a new sports exhaust system, a lowered suspension, and a new set of 21" RSX wheels that have been finished in a bright silver shade. Inside, Kahn Design has prepared a luxe of new digs, too, particularly a new Alcantara sports steering wheel, soft English leather, and bare-metal switches.

For a car that looks the way it does and boasts of a 6.0-liter V12 engine that delivers a total of 470 horsepower and 443 lb/ft of peak torque at 5000 rpm, there are a few things that the Aston Martin Rapide needs to be even more impressive than it is. But Kahn Design rolls in a different way. Knowing them the way we do, anything they work on has "improvements" written all over them.
