Project Kahn: Range Rover Evoque - 2.2 SD4 Pure Tech - RS-250
22nd May 2014
With its performance-oriented design and exceptional interior trim, the Kahn RS Range Rover Evoque RS Sport has been prepared by the highly skilled, experienced specialists at A. Kahn Design using a combination of hi-tech materials and artisan craftsmanship.
In keeping with our lightweight design philosophy, front and rear bumper replacements have been engineered in carbon composite material. The RS Sport tech pack is completed by a 3D mesh front grille, LED daytime running lights, front bumper mesh in matt black, lower boot lid spoiler lip in matt black, extended upper roof wing, rear tailgate trim in gloss black, brake calipers finished in liquid gold, 20mm lowering springs, twin crosshair exhaust system in stainless steel, sump guard in matt black, side vents in matt black, lower boot lid spoiler, rear diffuser in matt black, door handles and door mirrors in piano black and Kahn bonnet and tailgate lettering.
How does this volcanic grey beauty cope with RS 9.5 x 22” gloss black wheels on the road? Very nicely! The grip, body control and handling remain uncompromised, ensuring there is no trade off between looks and performance.
A multitude of improvements inside the cabin allow the driver to bask in the opulence and elegance of the trademark Kahn interior, which includes 2014 perforated front and rear seats in black nappa leather with Alcantara,
Closer inspection reveals a focus on finer details including a diamond gear selector, centre glove box re-upholstered in perforated black nappa leather, rev counter dial in red, speedo & rev counter coloured facia, machined vented aluminium foot pedals and intricately hand woven transmission tunnel, roof headline stitching and transmission tunnel in Alcantara with contrast stitching.
Discreet Kahn branding completes the package and leaves no-one in any uncertainty as to the basis of this stylish purposeful design and painstaking attention to detail. You will never look at a Evoque in the same way again.
