A. Kahn Design Range Rover Evoque RS250 Vesuvius Copper
Afzal Kahn’s latest project is this new mini-sport utility vehicle: the smallest ever Range Rover. We all know it’s called an Evoque, but allow A. Kahn Design to put into words just why this vehicle, complete with the enthralling Kahn Evoque kit sets the benchmark.
With over 90 percent of buyers set to be ‘newcomers’ to the product, and younger, more urban and a great deal more female than traditional customers – Afzal Kahn’s dalliance with the Evoque offers a whole new breadth of excitement, no doubt they’ll be reveling in ‘RS250’ shades of Vesuvius Copper!
And let Afzal Kahn be very clear: “This is how it should be done. I sat on the fence and waited until most of styling kits for the Evoque’s had been released,” said the principal British designer.
“It was a very complicated car to work but we worked within the factory style lines and I put my heart and soul into this. We spent thousands of hours working on this car because I wanted to ensure it isn’t seen as a conventional car but as something more serious for the road and I am quietly confident that our customers will enjoy a great deal of motoring supremacy with this outstanding vehicle.”
The A. Kahn Design Evoque is wholly unmistakable, with every external modification serving to coax greater performance from the car.
The Afzal Kahn touch includes a front and rear bumper, boot spoiler, central exhaust, fog lamps, LED running lights in front bumper, new front grille, kahn lowering module, privacy glass, brake calipers finished in Vesuvius copper, vented foot pedals in machined aluminum, heated seats, floor mats, aluminum machined foot pedals and Kahn branding.
Centered around a radical design and interconnected in order to coalesce design and engineering expression, the Kahn cross hair exhausts in stainless steel reflect an attraction to a pluto-matic lifestyle: a first cousin only to silence, and manners.
Inside is the ‘bespoke touch’, this particular vehicle comes with front and rear seats in black quilted and perforated leather with Alcantara inserts and Vesuvius copper detailing, rev counter and speedo in red, centre glove box (diamond quilted), door entry sill plates in stainless steel, door panel tops in quilted and perforated leather, piano black carbon trim and Vesuvius sports steering wheel with copper stitching.
However, we always provide our customers with what they want. And Afzal Kahn could, for example, design for you a vehicle with an exterior the color 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 color 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 9 x 22” (right offset) RS600 wheels in matt grey 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 RS600 wheels are synonymous with elegance and innovation.
