Afzal Kahn 2013 Land Rover Defender Harris Tweed Edition
Harris Tweed is a trademarked cloth that in order to carry the name, must be made from pure virgin wool and hand-woven by the islanders on the Isles of Lewis and Harris, Uist and Barra in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
The British tuner color matched the stitching and the instrument panel gauges to the Harris Tweed cloth.
For the exterior of the Defender Harris Tweed Edition, Kahn went with a black color theme that includes matte black bumpers and wheel arch extensions, headlamp surrounds and stainless steel front grille with an embossed Kahn feature.
Other additions include LED B6 headlights, clear rear and side light repeaters, fender air vents, chrome exhaust pipe and Kahn’s own alloy wheels finished in a dark shade.
The British brand has now turned its attention on the Spider model that sports an all-aluminium roof that rolls out from below the flying buttresses.
According to the tuner’s press blurb, “the Afzal Kahn touch comes complete with front and rear sections, ceramic brakes, wing shields, upgraded F1 gearbox and yellow brake calipers ensuring a mighty presence on the road”.
HOT! Kahn Design 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque RS250 Dark Tungsten Metallic Edition
The British tuners at Afzal Kahn have dressed up another Range Rover Evoque that bears the name RS250 Dark Tungsten Metallic edition. What sets Kahn Design’s five-door Evoque apart from the stock car is a styling package for both the exterior and interior.
The latter includes a new front bumper with an integrated spoiler, mesh inserts for both the upper and lower grilles, ‘KAHN’ lettering on the bonnet’s leading edge, side skirts, a new rear bumper with a diffuser and central exhaust pipes, a roof wing and a lower boot lid spoiler.
Kahn also fitted the SUV with side vent inserts finished in copper and a new set of 22-inch RS600 wheels in matt grey. The only performance modification is a stainless-steel sports exhaust.
A lot of work has gone to the interior, which is outfitted in a blend of quilted black leather and grey and black Alcantara, while the instrument gauges are finished in red and carbon fibre trim has been used throughout the cabin.
According to the company, the “Kahn touch” comes via the addition of front and rear sections (which to be honest, we are having a hard time making out from these images), ceramic brakes, wing shields (we are not sure what the tuner means by this), an upgraded F1 gearbox and yellow brake calipers.
The Kahn-fettled Ferrari 599 is available for sale by Kahn for £88,875 (US$139,000 or €113,000 at the current exchange rates).
British design house Kahn has presented a new take on the original Land Rover Defender under the guise of the Chelsea Truck Company, which is one of Kahn’s sub-brands for off-road vehicles.
Aptly named the XS 90, the revamped three-door Defender is finished in an Orkney Grey color with contrasting satin black details that include the mesh headlamp and front grille protectors, side steps, bumpers, mirror caps and the Kahn design 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich tires.
A lot more work went into the interior that was refashioned from top to bottom sporting front and rear racing car seats in quilted red leather and contrast stitching, with the same material also used on the door panels, the padded armrest, gear lever, roof lining, sun visors and sections of the dashboard.
The steering wheel rim is dressed in grey Alcantara while Kahn added a red fascia to the speedometer and rev counter.
There are no upgrades under the hood with the XS 90 offered with the stock 2.2-liter turbo diesel rated at 120hp (122PS) and 265 lb-ft (360Nm), coupled to a six-speed manual transmission.
Finished in an Onyx Black shade, the Kahn-prepped Rapide is outfitted with a front bumper grille mesh in matte black, bonnet vents in billet, black brake calipers, side vent grilles in matte black and privacy glass.
The most interesting feature of the lite makeover, however, are the new 21-inch RSX-F forged alloy wheels in platinum silver finish with original Aston Martin center caps.
The only performance modifications are a sports suspension kit that lowers the ride height and a custom exhaust system.
Like most other proposals from Kahn, the Rapide’s interior can be customized to the buyer’s preferences
Kahn Design’s “Wrangler Jeep Military Edition” is complemented by 20-inch smoked black alloy wheels, brake calipers finished in copper, xenon crosshair headlamps, a black fuel filler cap and rear wheel cover, tinted windows and mud flaps.
The Wrangler also gets a sports exhaust system with twin tailpipes on either side of the rear bumper.
Inside, the Jeep features front and rear seats trimmed in quilted black leather with copper stitching, a center console trim plate also in a copper finish, plus aluminum door sills and pedals.
Kahn says it offers the Military Edition Jeep Wrangler in both petrol and diesel-powered variants, in right hand or left hand drive, with this particular model priced in the UK at £41, 875 (US$65,100 or €52,400 at today’s exchange rates) on the road.
The UK tuner’s upgrades are limited to the chunky 22-inch RSL alloy wheels in a Silver Palladium finish that hide new brake calipers in Liquid Red, the tinted windows and new logos on the tailgate.
The real customization begins inside where Kahn added quilted perforated leather interior seats in black with white seams, a new glove box complete with carbon effect inserts and bespoke instrument gauges in red and silver.
Kahn said that it is preparing more goods for the X5 crossover, with more information to be announced in the coming weeks ahead.
The deep red used on Project Kahn’s tune, hits the spot in our opinion and creates a nice contrast with the black accents such as the carbon fiber front grille, side air vents, front and rear bumper trims and the quad exhaust tailpipes.
The British design house has also fitted the Range Rover, which is appropriately named “Red Ranger”, with a wide body kit that consists of extended front and rear lower lip spoilers, front LED light strips, side skirts and wheel arch extensions.
The luxury SUV rides on a new set of 22-inch Kahn RS600 wheels.
Inside, the exterior theme is reversed as black leather and carbon fiber trims cover most surfaces of the cabin with red being used as an accent color on the stitching of the seats and door panels.
