New 2012 Range Rover Sport Vesuvius edition by A Kahn Design

The Kahn Vesuvius orange range rover sport is just one of those cars that you almost feel guilty for liking.

However, let Afzal Kahn obliterate all that guilt from your mind and allow you admire the choice many are sure to make.

The Vesuvius style and concept been copied by many since Afzal Kahn originally developed the range in 2005. However, the revamped 2012 model range rover sport Vesuvius has a range of upgrades including enhancements to the performance, fuel economy and gear ratios. It also receives an upgraded audio and infotainment system with the new generation’s seven-inch touch screen that features the dual view technology and rear-seat entertainment with screens mounted in the front headrests.

The Kahn LE exterior upgrade fitted to the Vesuvius edition SUV includes a wide track aerodynamic styling package with vented wide wheel arches and integrated LED daytime running lights, quad stainless steel exhaust system, liquid gold calipers, RS front grille with 3d mesh, grille insert in carbon fibre, exhaust side vents and Kahn branding. Paint detailing includes: matt pearl grey door handles, Vesuvius orange side vents and a grille surround.

The 3.0 liter SDV6 diesel engine produces 256hp at 4,000rpm with a maximum torque of 600Nm at 2,000rpm. The engine uses a analogous chronological turbo charging system improving the throttle response with a upper limit torque already available from only 2,000rpm. The 3.0 liter diesel delivers 500Nm in only 500 milliseconds from 0. This means instant contact to 83 percent of maximum torque in the lower rev ranges, which can be felt from the moment you hit the throttle.

The engine is linked to the a new ZF 8HP70, eight-speed automatic gearbox, offering smooth shifts and improved fuel economy. The gearbox is rather smart too. In hot conditions it selects a lower gear to run the engine and air conditioning pumps faster to cool down the interior. In cold conditions it runs the engine faster to reduce warm-up time and emissions. The new 2012 Range Rover Sport SDV6 has been equipped with the Drive Select rotary gear shift and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Kahn added his personal luxury touch to the surface of the round gear shift button.

Inside is the bespoke touch and this particular vehicle comes complete with a Kahn LE interior package consisting of bespoke RS front and rear seats in diamond quilted perforated black leather with Vesuvius orange inserts, matching centre arm rest and door tops, carbon fibre interior facia trim, speedo & rev counter in red, diamond gear selector, Churchill time clock with Swarovski diamond bezel, Kahn illuminated sill plates and machined foot pedals.

Inside this tailored cabin, you are being powered along by a super-refined new engine, improved chassis setup and the true Range Rover style. Isolated from the rest of the world, Afzal Kahn delivers a feel-good factor that very few others offer.

However, we provide our customers with the opportunity to express one’s individuality. And they can have whatever they want. Afzal Kahn will add your personally requested luxury style and taste to the equation making you feel even more at home then you already are. He could, for example, design for you a vehicle with an exterior the colour of your shirt and an interior the same shade of your living room, the choice is yours.

Kahn wheels sit perfectly, on any vehicle, conveying the essence of the vehicle’s identity. Created using state-of-the art manufacturing and materials technology, the 22” Kahn RS wheels finished in the colour of your choice and fit all original centre caps.

With simple clean lines, soft organic surfaces on the edge of the spoke and a purposeful mechanical centre, the RS wheels are synonymous with elegance and innovation.

A. Kahn Design is for the individual who will not submit to a life of uniformity and who will only accept perfection. Dedicated to the creation of luxury bespoke vehicles, we redesign the ordered monotony of mass produced vehicles and rebuild them into individually tailored creations.

Available in petrol and diesel models, in right hand or left hand drive, this vehicle exudes nonchalance and style.

The Kahn Jeep: a different turn

An ongoing project that has received much acclaim is the Kahn Jeep, further expanding the renowned Wrangler brand’s reach.

Afzal Kahn’s philosophy was always to combine mechanical perfection with exterior beauty.  And the principal British designer delivers the high-impact Kahn Jeep with such clout; it is safe to say that the vehicle would not look out of place with London, Chelsea or New York centric drivers, rock climbers and off-roaders at the helm, nor would it look weary in a John Connor inspired post-apocalyptic Terminator movie.

Range Rovers are a core part of the business but cars like Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Porsche, Bentley and Aston Martin are also included in Kahn’s portfolio. “We are predominantly a design company, with an in-house sales facility,” says business development manager, Ali Khiyani.

“We do what we call a full conversion of the car where we will put on a body kit to restyle the shape and make it look unique. We offer a full range of wheels (up to 22 inches), along with bespoke perforated and quilted leather interiors. So be it any car, any size or shape, a full conversion would see a vehicle fitted with a Kahn body kit and wheels, and the interior completely changed to be replaced with sheer opulence.”

The Afzal Kahn touch includes a meshed front grill, gold finished calipers, quad exhaust system, rear wheel cover, smoked side lights and repeaters, petrol flat cap in billet mat black, mud flaps hardwearing, aluminum machined foot pedals, smoked side lights and repeaters, sat-navigation, reverse camera, blue tooth, dial facia clocks and LED driving lights and to finish it all off, the compulsory branded rear wheel cover.

Furthermore, a commitment to fostering cutting edge technology ensures, should customers wish, for the blank rear window sections and LED lights to be made available in bullet-proof glass. Furthermore, depending on the level of protection required, a superior type of glass, more advanced than the sort of glass which is used to protect world statesmen, is also available

Inside is the ‘bespoke touch’, Afzal Kahn could, for example, design for you a vehicle with an exterior the colour of your jeans and an interior with seats akin to the shade of, let’s say, a grey t-shirt. Customers could also change the colour of the clock, or ask for anything else, the world is their oyster, so to speak.

Kahn wheels sit perfectly, on any vehicle, conveying the essence of the vehicle’s identity. Created using state-of-the art manufacturing and materials technology, the Kahn RS wheels are available in 9 x 20 in silver or black and fit all original centre caps.

With simple clean lines, soft organic surfaces on the edge of the spoke and a purposeful mechanical centre, the RS wheels are synonymous with elegance and innovation.
