An Aston Martin worthy of James Bond.
Project Kahn is one of the most recognized design houses of British automobiles. The latest creation is the quintessential British convertible and just might make an appearance in the upcoming James Bond movie in 2012.
The new Kahn DB9 Volante, according to Head Designer, Afzal Kahn, is intended “to be comfortable, elegant and a powerful long-distance vehicle,” rather than an athletic sports car. The Aston Martin DB9 Volante features a soft top that can be retracted in just 17 seconds, and uses a rigid and lightweight chassis.
However, the Ferrari Bianco White Kahn Aston Martin boasts extra goodies compared to the stock DB9 Volante. The 6.0-liter V-12 roars through a Kahn sport exhaust system. The entire convertible is lowered by a Kahn sport suspension system for a better center of gravity, and a set of 20-inch RSV Kahn Matte Grey alloy wheels visually complete the exterior design. Behind the set of lightweight wheels sit contrasting red brake calipers.
Inside, the Aston Martin DB9 Volante is smooth and comfortable. Kahn has fitted quilted black leather with contrasting cream stitching and a cream-colored secondary hide to the dashboard, doors, and console. Occupants can also choose to hide from outside view thanks to dark privacy glass from Project Kahn. Other interior features include pearl grey detailing and satellite navigation.
The entire Project Kahn Aston Martin DB9 Volante is currently available as a complete car for £54,875 (+/- 86,600 USD). Project Kahn has been very tight-lipped when asked if the car will appear in the upcoming James Bond movie, stating “You’ll just have to wait for the movie to come out in November 2012 and see if this particular vehicle or any other Kahn vehicle is featured…”
We’ll be waiting!
