A. Kahn Design Land Rover Defender
At this precise moment, in the heart of A. Kahn Design’s systematic laboratory where all designs come to realisation, the design team led by principal British designer Afzal Kahn, have started work on some (strikingly styled) Kahn treatment of the Land Rover Defender to be launched via the Kahn expedition vehicles brand in 2012.
These designs feature the kind of treatment that makes A. Kahn Design’s bespoke vehicles a favourite amongst discerning customers - and with the engine set to be taken care of by Cosworth, expect the Defender’s 2.4 litre diesel engine to top the current 122hp/90kW and 360Nm of torque with 90 percent of peak power on tap from less than 2,200rpm to over 4,350rpm.
Afzal Kahn does not envisage the Kahn Defender to be some sort of people carrier – it will be a speedier yet hard-core off-roader that's unstoppable in the rough, whether confronted with thick mud trains, uneven riverbeds or alarmingly steep inclines.
Evolved through skilled artistic innovation and state-of-the art manufacturing and materials technology - our 22-inch RS wheels exemplify what A. Kahn Design is all about: elegance and skilled artistic innovation. Furthermore, the RS wheels accommodate all original Land Rover centre caps.
A. Kahn Design vehicles are 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.
Inside will be the expected bespoke touch. We provide our customers with the opportunity to express one’s individuality. And they can have whatever they want. We 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.
