Introducing the Kahn Defender XS90 2.2 TDCI - Chelsea Wide Track
14th Mar 2013
An icon in every sense of the word, the Land Rover Defender is rugged in appeal and hard-hitting in stature.
Yet, in the very capable hands of Afzal Kahn, the Defender’s territory pounding contour is coupled with contemporary luxury – making it more striking than ever.
Staying true to his philosophy of combining mechanical perfection and exterior beauty, the principal British designer insists fundamentals bearing diametrically opposing functions will appeal to customers far and wide. And his formula of club-class quality and high-tech engineering ensures every external modification serves to coax greater performance from the car.
The tasteful intensity of this vehicle will leave a distinctive impression – allowing you to approve of and appreciate a range of enhancements which include brake calipers finished in liquid red, front and rear wide wings with integrated vents and bolt apertures, extended wheel arches in satin black, front and rear wing vent mesh inserts, roof in satin black, bonnet vents with mesh, diamond LED B6 headlamps, front grille with embossed Kahn branding & mesh, Kahn prototype wing blades, side vents with mesh. hardwearing mud flaps, Chelsea Truck Company spare wheel cover and undercar Kahn logo projection floor light.
Driving the Kahn Defender means you sit behind the privacy tinted glass and pilot the engine while listening to the Kahn cross hair exhaust system.
Centered round a radical design and interconnected in order to coalesce design and engineering expression, the Kahn stainless steel quad crosshair exhaust system is a first cousin only to silence and manners.
Inside is the ‘bespoke touch’, and these particular vehicles comes complete with front and rear racing seats in black leather with Harris Tweed inserts & silver stitching, billet machined leather steering wheel, Kahn fire extinguisher, rev counter facia in red, front and rear cabin floor mats, vented foot pedals in machined aluminum, interior entry LED lights for rear cabin and Churchill time clock facia insert in red.
The company philosophy is to always give the customer what they want, so Afzal Kahn could for example, design you a vehicle with a full colour change (to a colour of your choice) and an interior akin to, let’s say your favourite leather reclining chair in your living room. Customers could also change the colour of the clock, or indeed, ask for anything else.
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 8 X 18” RS Defender wheels in satin black 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 Defender wheels are synonymous with elegance and innovation.
A. Kahn Design is 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.
