Powerful looks, powerful engine, refined interior.
The Vesuvius edition has been part of the A Kahn Design portfolio since 2005 for Range Rover models. The newest 2012 Range Rover Sport Vesuvius Edition is a stunning upgrade program for an advanced Range Rover SUV and continues the line of vibrant orange SUVs from A Kahn Design.
The latest Vesuvius Edition is based on the new 2012 Range Rover Sport that offers better performance, fuel economy, and ride quality. The SUV is powered by a 3.0-liter SDV6 turbodiesel engine that produces 256 bhp at 4,000 RPM and 442 lb-ft. of torque at 2,000 RPM, with over 80 percent of that toque being available off the line. The efficient engine is mated to a new eight-speed transmission featuring paddle shifters and Drive Select. The new powertrain delivers more fuel efficient performance than previous models and a quality ride.
A Kahn Design built upon this formula for success in the 2012 Range Rover Vesuvius Edition. The entire exterior is dressed in the classic Vesuvius orange paint and the SUV was given a new Kahn LE exterior upgrade. The package includes widened fenders with ventilation, RS front grille with 3D mesh, carbon fiber grille insert, and LED daytime running lights. A stainless steel quad exhaust system, liquid gold calipers, and exhaust side vents also come standard in the package. New matte pearl grey door handles, Vesuvius orange side vents, and orange grille surround are worn by the upgraded Range Rover Sport. The finishing touch is a set of 22-inch Kahn RS wheels that accommodate the stock center caps and can be finished to customer specification.
The interior of the new 2012 Range Rover Vesuvius Edition was given a refined Kahn LE upgrade as well. All of the stock seats were replaced with new RS seats with diamond quilted and perforated leather with contrasting Vesuvius orange inserts, and matches the door tops and center arm rest. The interior also features a carbon fiber trim set, diamond gear selector, red speedometer and tachometers, machined foot pedals, illuminated Kahn entry sills, and a Churchill clock with Swarovski diamond bezel. A Kahn Design gave the Vesuvius Edition front seat-mounted screens and an upgraded audio an infotainment system that utilizes the new dual-view technology from Range Rover.
The new 2012 Range Rover Sport Vesuvius Edition by A Kahn Design is currently available in right- or left-hand drive and in gasoline and diesel variants. The featured example is currently available for £73,875 and sports £25,000 worth of upgrades from A Kahn Design.
