A proper coachbuilt sports car.
After many sneak peeks and previews, the highly-anticipated Kahn Vengeance finally made its global debut at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show on March 1st at Stand 6338. The two-door, coachbuilt coupe is the result of Afzal Kahn’s will and desire to create the car that he has always wanted to drive.
“The feedback we have received so far from media colleagues, customers and fans thus far has been phenomenal. Everybody I’ve spoken to wants to see the Vengeance up close and get behind the wheel,” said Afzal Kahn. “I have worked in the industry my whole career, and I want to leave a legacy which I can be proud of. The 2016 Geneva Motor Show is the ideal platform to launch such a hand crafted vehicle.”
Based on a new Aston Martin DB9 chassis, the Kahn Vengeance brings classic British coachbuilding to the modern age and recalls iconic Aston Martin designs of the 1980s and ‘90s. The retro styling and traditional handcrafted gives owners a pure, custom-tailored driving treat virtually unattainable across the industry.
The Kahn Vengeance starts with a new front fascia featuring a wide grille with seven vertical bars to create a dominating appearance. A power bulge starts at the hood and runs into the sculpted lines of the roof that gradually mesh into the tapering rear. Extended front and rear fenders add some visual muscle and strength without taking away from the sports car’s elegant character.
A unique chrome roof halo slides into the rear window and down to the redesigned rear fascia. Here, a pair of rounded LED taillights flank a clean, wide bumper with integrated dual cross-hair exhaust tailpipes.
Beneath the curvaceous lines formed by the fenders and silhouette of the Kahn Vengeance are lightweight wheels with a retro design. The wheels have a multi-spoke style that separates the inner and outer sections of the rim, similar to that of a roulette wheel. The central section is finished in the body color while the outer portion puts a contrasting diamond-cut finish on display. The wheels are also tailored to each axle with the front featuring 16 spokes and the rear boasting 18.
The handcrafted coachbuilding also extends to the interior, where everything is tailored specifically to each customer’s wishes, no matter how incredible.
“I am delighted to see Kahn Design at the Geneva Motor Show. There is a long and rich history of specialist coach-built Aston Martins, and we wish Kahn every success with the Vengeance,” said Gary Archer, Aston Martin Purchasing Director.
Further details including pricing for the new Kahn Vengeance will be released at a later date. With the prices of coachbuilt vehicles steadily rising, it will likely prove a very worthy investment.
