Add a few wings and this could be Bruce Wayne's new SUV.
When you think of Le Mans, you probably don’t think about sport-utility vehicles. The tuners at Kahn Automobiles, however, do think about such things, which led to the creation of this rather menacing machine the company calls the Bentley Bentayga Le Mans Edition. No, Kahn doesn’t turn this sizable SUV into a blistering corner carver – the upgrades are entirely aesthetic. But the end result does look quite aggressive.
The bespoke treatment begins up front with a new carbon bumper spoiler, front grille, and bumper side sills that compliment new darkened window surrounds. On the back, the Bentayga gets a carbon rear boot wing with blacked out trim, as well as blackout treatment for the exhaust. That all works in conjunction with the black satin finish applied to the car, which is then paired with a set of black 23-inch Le Mans wheels designed by company founder Afzal Kahn. The wheels are built so the stock Bentley center caps can be added, which admittedly is a neat touch.
Inside the Le Mans Edition, one will find even more blackness with a Kahn 3D Herringbone perforated leather interior. The steering wheel, door panels, and door handle surrounds all recast in black as well. Other details aren’t offered up, however Kahn does emphasize that customization is the name of the game. As such, customers have a plethora of custom combinations and material selections to suit specific tastes. If ultra-opulent is what you need, the tuner will go full-luxury with an abundance of nappa leather and alcantara.
In spite of the race-inspired name, there are no mechanical or power upgrades made to the big people mover, save for an adjustable lowering module that raises or lowers ride-height for the desired stance.
If this sounds like the rig you’ve been looking for, Kahn will sell this satin black Bentayga for a not-that-unreasonable £169,999, which translates to approximately $228,000.
