Kahn; my top 3 of everything you'd ever want and beyond
Bespoke, unique handcrafted driving pieces of art, standard cars made better. Exclusivity, beauty and extremes are the words you'll be looking for.
Some of you might know Kahn because of National Geographic Channel's show Supercar Megabuild. Kahn Design specialises in the modification of cars. According to Autocar, Kahn is the "king of car customisation". Here's my top 3 favourite creations.
3: Audi A8
My number 3 actually comes from the Supercar Megabuild series; it's an Audi A8 made for whose enormous driveway is full of lots of snow in the winter, and they needed a car for the job. So, they did the obvious and fitted an Audi A8 with caterpillar tracks. There isn't much more to say about this, but I absolutely love it, besides it looking ridiculous and incredibly cool, it also works. So forget your winter holiday with a Range Rover, get an Audi A8 with tracks!
2: Land Rover Defender 110
Flying Huntsman 6X6 PICKUP
One thing is most certain, the name is as long as the car itself. Meet: the 88cm longer Defender 6x6 Pickup. Oh, besides being as long as the name, the car is as ridiculous too. Complete with an all-leather interior, rear roll bar, new X-lander grille and a set of extra tires, the car is fitted with a 6.2-litre General Motors LS3 V8 generating 430hp. I just wouldn't say the interior looks like somewhere you'd step in with your muddy boots. However, I don't think that would be a problem for the buyers of this car, I don't know how much this piece of hugeness costs new. I did found a "second hand" one from 2018 with a whopping 100 miles on the odometer and a full red leathered interior... for... well... five-hundred-thousand pounds... Leaving that small detail out of the equation, we all love a Defender and this one looks incredibly cool, so a deserved place in this top 3.
1: Kahn Vengeance
The Vengeance is based on the Aston Martin DB9, and before we start off, let's have a moment to let that name sink in; Vengeance... Right, now the car itself, it's based on the DB9 and was revealed on 2015's Geneva Motor Show. Here it is:
*Audience gasps*, that's stage 1 after seeing this car, stage 2 is being flabbergasted after which you either engage stage 3a (love it) or stage 3b (hate it). I started off in 3b, but after a very short while, I ended up in stage 3a. I guess you'd just have to forget about the fact that it's based on the DB9. It's not an improved DB9, it's basically a new car.
Every panel of this car has been swapped for a man with hammer made aluminium one. The whole interior got re-upholstered. Mechanically the Aston was kept the same, except for the exhaust, which now is a... baffle-free, loud, steel one. I think it looks amazing, the big, black grille, wide rear fenders and a rear end that looks tremendous. Definitely the number 1 in this list.
