Range Rover Sport 3.0TD V6 Davis Mark II Limited Edition By Project Kahn

You probably know that Project Kahn has a soft spot for the Range Rover and this new tuning package shouldn’t come as a surprise. Dubbed Davis Mark II, this limited edition is based on the 2011 Range Rover Sport model, the one with the V6 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine.

From the outside, we notice that white paint, the new aero package and the grey-finished lower parts. Red and blue was used for the air vent trims, side steps and the brake calipers. It rides on a new pair of 22-inch alloy rims and the door handles have been painted in grey.

As far as the inside cabin is concerned, the tuning specialists offer a bespoke interior, featuring quilted RS Cosworth leather trim, along with a new infotainment system.

They will also increase the power of the engine by 55 hp for a grand total of 300 hp.

This conversion will cost you about 25,000 pounds ($40,800).

Probably the best-looking SUV at the moment is the Range Rover and British tuner, Project Kahn, has decided to make it look even better.

Project Kahn Audi A5

The engineers over at Project Kahn have revealed this week their latest tuning program for the sexy Audi A5 3.0. It seems that they took their inspiration from another gorgeous car, the R8. It comes with a very aggressive front fascia, an updated rear bumper, along with a trunk-mounted spoiler.

The ride height of this model has been reduced by 35mm thanks to the lowered suspension module, while the standard exhaust system was replaced by a more imposing four-tailpipe sport configuration. The exterior changes end with the new set of 21-inch RSL alloy rims.

Moving inside the cabin, we find the revised instrument cluster, stainless steel kick plates, billet aluminum pedals, along with exquisite Nappa leather seats.

Price for this beauty? Starting with 31,875 pounds.

In my opinion, the Aston Martin Cygnet is probably the most ridiculous car that was made in the last decade. Don’t get me wrong, it looks kinda funky and I completely understand the idea behind it, but with an incredible price tag of almost $50,000, you’d have to be insane to buy one. This Toyota iQ-based minicar will be available for sale starting with this April.

What I find even more fascinating is that there is going to be a tuned version of the car, courtesy of Project Kahn, which will make the price tag reach astronomic proportions.

To remind you, the standard version has a 1.33-liter Dual VVT-I engine that outputs 97 hp (98 PS / 72 kW) and 91 lb.-ft (123 Nm) of torque – not quite Bond-ish, right?

Project Kahn Range Rover Sport Trio

The British tuning company Project Kahn has revealed its 2011 lineup of modified Range Rover Sport models, which consists of three configurations featuring select interior and exterior appointments as well as some welcomed performance boosts.

First on the agenda is the Range Rover 3.0 TDV6 RSE Signature Edition, the entry-level model of this range. The car comes with a very generous exterior styling package that includes the following: twin mesh front grille and vents, roof spoiler, bumpers and massive 22-inch Kahn RSL alloy rims. Inside the cabin, the car features front headrests in twin mesh, Kahn clock and gauges, stainless steel sill plates, leather key ring and inserts with Swarovski diamonds. A “unique deep rumble sound” is guaranteed by the Project Kahn Acoustic Supersound four-pipe exhaust system.

The second car from this trio is the Range Rover Sport RSE300 Cosworth which benefits from the bodykit of the Signature Edition and also packs additional features, such as: LED daytime running lights, a so-called painted floating roof, boot spoiler and impressive 22-inch RS Matte Pearl Grey wheels. According to Project Kahn, a Cosworth engine conversion offers more juice under the hood.

The top-of-the-line model is the RS600 which is available with a 6-piece bodykit, custom wheels and integrated LED lights. Inside the cabin, this model is covered in high-quality perforated and quilted leather which is complemented by the contrasting stitching that was applied to the steering wheel as well as the gear shifter. Other goodies include the leather key ring and the blue Project Kahn clock and gauges.

Project Kahn and Lorinser, two of the best known tuning companies, announced an interesting new partnership, which will result in new tuning programs for several cars. And the first one to get German-English treatment was the Mercedes Benz S Class, with Lorinser providing the body kit and Project Kahn handling the full bespoke leather interior and adding new Kahn RSL 21 inch matte black with red stripes wheels. This ought to be really interesting to watch, a partnership between a German tuner and an English one. If they come up with their best, we might some really cool tuning programs in the future.

Marcus Lorinser said: “We are positive about our cooperation, not least because of the combination of our good image, know-how as well as the long term experience in business of Kahn Design [..] The unique philosophy and life style expressed in the Kahn RSL wheel is truly sensational. This project is without a doubt the perfect blend of British and German styling and it will certainly ensure a great deal of customer satisfaction.” While Afzal Kahn added: “This innovative partnership will ensure Individuals with exquisite taste will find exactly what they are looking for [..] in the coming weeks and months ahead we will be releasing numerous products that live up to my high standards and unique philosophy.”

It looks like for some people buying an Aston Martin is not enough and they want more exclusivity for their car. For those people, Project Kahn has announced a new hand-built custom interior for the Aston Martin Vanquish S, which includes a Bespoke dashboard, centre piece, front and back seats, doors, steering wheel, roof lining and a mixture of nappa and alcantara leather. According to the press release, the package is aimed at “individuals that cannot submit to a life of monotonous uniformity and will only accept perfection”…damn, I’m so bored by my monotonous Aston Martin, that I would like something else for it.

Remember Project Kahn’s Cosworth 300 tuning program for the Range Rover Sport? It’s the first package released since British tuner Project Kahn and Cosworth started their partnership, back in April. And you might say that in the current economic times, a tuning program for an SUV won’t be that successful. However, you forget that there’s a place in this world where money’s not an issue at all, the Middle East. The Saudi Royal Family has just placed an order for 80 vehicles, which, considering that a fully customized one (we can’t imagine Saudi royalty ordering anything else) costs £122,226 (around $200,000), that’s quite a jump start for Afzal Kahn’s project. A spokesman for the Saudi Royal family said that the 80 vehicles were bought for “members of the family because Cosworth is back on the streets and we wanted the cars before anybody else.”

Yup, that’s how much Afzal Kahn, head of the Kahn Design and Project Kahn, paid for the “F1″ license plate. More exactly, $870,000 ($740,000 plus taxes). Mr Kahn bought the license plate to put it on his custom made McLaren Mercedes SLR, so actually his plate worths more than his car. The “F1″ plate was registered in the UK long time ago, in 1904, back when it was just a license plate and F1 didn’t mean anything. And it looks like Bernie Ecclestone and Eddie Irvine tried to buy the plate in 2005, but wouldn’t pay the requested price.

The previous most expensive plate was the “M1″ sold in 2006 for $650,000, but the new record could be broken soon, when the “A1″, UK’s oldest registered license plate, will go on sale.
