UK tuning house Kahn Design has announced the Aston Martin DB9-based WB12 Vengeance will receive its premiere next month at the Geneva Motor Show.
The Aston Martin DB9 is on its way to a well-deserved retirement, but not before it goes through significant cosmetic surgery performed by tuner-turned-coachbuilder Kahn Design. Now we have confirmation the WB12 Vengeance will show up next month in Geneva and along with the announcement we also have several fresh images showing the reimagined DB9.
Perhaps the most striking change is at the front where Kahn Design has installed a custom grille in billet aluminum that gives the DB9 an interesting fascia. A composite front bumper is added into the mix and combined with a carbon splitter, while the side profile reveals new wings and vents. Composite side skirts and roulette-styled LED taillights are also specifically designed for the WB12 Vengeance that will feature crosshair exhaust pipes made from stainless steel.
Kahn Design hasn’t said a worth about whether the gran tourer’s V12 engine will also go through some changes to match the styling tweaks. In its standard configuration, the naturally-aspirated 6.0-liter engine generates 510 horsepower (380 kilowatts) and 458 pound-feet of torque (620 newton meters). As a side note, the engine is about to receive a pair of turbochargers and will decrease in displacement to 5.2 liters for the upcoming DB11.
We will have all the details about the WB12 in less than a month when Kahn Design will unleash its vengeance in Geneva.
