A. Kahn Design Range Rover Harris Tweed Edition
Harris Tweed has been described as “the Champagne of fabrics” and is the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament.
Hand woven by the islanders on the Isles of Harris, Lewis, Uist and Barra in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, using local wool, Harris Tweed is one of the most traditional and rustic of fabrics.
And only Afzal Kahn himself would have the foresight to combine the subtle Harris Tweed flecks characterized by subtle flecks of color achieved through the use of vegetable dyes, including lichen dyes called ‘crottle’ with the principal British designer’s blend of innovation, history and design.
On paper, it should not work, but Harris Tweed is the fabric of choice and Afzal Kahn is the preferred designer for most discerning clients – and the end result is nothing short of sensational!
Understated with style, comfort and luxury – the storm black pearl colored Range Rover Harris Tweed edition by A.Kahn Design boasts an aerodynamic styling package consisting of a front bumper complete with ring bezels, 3D mesh and integrated LED daylight running lights, rear bumper/exhaust diffuser, illuminated door sill plates, side skirts with insert detailing, liquid gold break calipers, front grill, front bumper lower section, side vents and side skirts, door handles and tail gate trim and fog light surrounds.
Interconnected in order to coalesce design and engineering expression, the Kahn stainless steel quad exhaust system is centered around a radical design - reflecting an attraction to a pluto-matic lifestyle – it is a first cousin only to silence, and manners.
The Harris Tweed interior package is superb, great finishes and top end design makes it a fabulous place to spend time. You will not tire with the front and rear seats in black quilted buttoned perforated soft leather with Harris Tweed inserts, extended 24 piece interior wood facia trim in piano black and billet steel finish, and clock facia with Swarovski diamond bezel
Machined aluminum foot pedals, churchill Time Clock facia with Swarovski Diamond Bezel, dashboard, steering wheel, glove box and door panel contrast stitching complement the interior package.
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 with matt pearl grey detailing, 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.
