The trendsetting mini-SUV.
The new Range Rover Evoque is a new direction for the British brand and was created to draw in a newer, younger crowd living in an urban environment. The fresh, modern design and character of the Evoque is something that Afzal Kahn and his team at A Kahn Design worked hard to improve upon with the new Vesuvius Copper RS250 program and have transformed the small SUV into a style trendsetter.
“This is how it should be done. I sat on the fence and waited until most of styling kits for the Evoque’s had been released,” said Afzal Kahn. “It was a very complicated car to work but we worked within the factory style lines and I put my heart and soul into this. We spent thousands of hours working on this car because I wanted to ensure it isn’t seen as a conventional car but as something more serious for the road and I am quietly confident that our customers will enjoy a great deal of motoring supremacy with this outstanding vehicle.”
Every upgrade and modification was painstakingly designed to extract as much style, performance, and character from the RS250 Vesuvius Copper Edition. The exterior was given a stunning coat of Vesuvius Copper paint and contrasted by special black elements and trim to set itself apart from the pedestrian small SUV market.
The RS250 Vesuvius Copper Evoque wears sculpted, muscular features that give it an aggressive look with a modern twist that complements the original styling. The front was fitted with a new bumper with redesigned grille, LED running lights, and fog lights. The rear of the small SUV boasts a redesigned bumper with centrally-mounted stainless steel exhaust with cross-hair design, and a trunk spoiler for downforce. Special 9.0 x 22 (right offset) Kahn RS600 wheels in matte grey with original center caps sit close to the fenders thanks to a new lowering module for an improved center of gravity. Behind each of the five-spoke wheels sit copper-painted brake calipers. The finishing touch for the exterior is dark-tinted privacy glass to hide occupants from prying eyes.
The interior of the Range Rover Evoque Vesuvius Copper Edition RS250 has all the plush goodies that A Kahn Design is known for. The Quilted and perforated black leather with alcantara inserts and copper highlights adorns the front and rear seats for a comfortable and stylish ride. Much of the interior including the glove box and door panel tops wear quilted leather creating an aesthetically-pleasing, luxurious atmosphere. Drivers of the RS250 Vesuvius Copper Evoque can be treated to machined and ventilated aluminum foot pedals, a red tachometer and speedometer, and Vesuvius sports steering wheel with copper stitching. Piano black carbons trim along with stainless steel door entry sills complete the magnificent interior transformation.
The Vesuvius Copper RS250 Range Rover Evoque is currently available from A Kahn Design as a complete upgrade program for the new, small SUV. As with all of the models from A Kahn Design, customers have the option to custom-tailor virtually every aspect of the SUV to suit their tastes.
