British tuner, Project Kahn , sure gets around, with tuning kits for everything from Smart cars to Bugattis. It’s their job to take decent vehicles and transform them into complete and total eye candy and their latest sweet treat - created along with Cosworth - is the RS500 package based off the Landrover Range Rover SUV. There’s no skimping on this kit either, as exterior, interior, and engine all get worked on.
We’ll get the main part out of the way first with the sweet center that is the engine. The 4.4 liter V8 diesel engine gets the performance boost of a lifetime with a Cosworth performance upgrade. This upgrade takes the SUV all the way up to 500hp. Now that’s some real power for a diesel SUV.
For the interior the RS500 package gets black quilted leather with silver stitching. The sporty look is completed by aluminum decorations on the doorsills, center console, gear lever, air vents, and steering wheel.
Continuing the path to the outside of the car, the exterior package shows off some newly designed bumpers, a rear diffuser, side skirts, and a quad tail pipe exhaust system manufactured by Cosworth. The car’s aggressive look is completed by new 22-inch RSX alloy wheels with a multi-spoke design.
Forgetting the fact that these are two completely different vehicles, the overall look of this car reminds us a great deal of the Landrover Freelander RS200 created by Project Kahn as well. This isn’t a bad thing, however, because both vehicles look amazing.
