Clean lines and meaty diesel power.
The latest creation to come out of the Project Kahn design studios is the Mercedes-Benz ML 350 Bluetec. Packing a Brabus-tuned engine, the new Project Kahn Mercedes brings together the precise engineering from Brabus with the exclusive styling of Afzal Kahn.
Brabus GmbH is one of the largest tuning companies in the world and is backed by decades of engineering experience. The new soft metallic pearl white ML 350 Bluetec is the last of ten original models built. Although the car is already unique due to its low production number, Project Kahn has taken it a step further with an exterior and interior transformation.
The Brabus ML 350 Bluetec boasts a powerful 272 horsepower diesel engine with 435 lb-ft. of earth-moving torque and rugged looks (for a Mercedes-Benz). To go along with the toughness of the SUV, Project Kahn installed a carbon-finished front grille, new carbon fiber fog lamp bezels, and tinted front indicator lenses. New 22-inch RS-X Black Edition wheels create a sculpted appearance and are accentuated by a lowered sports suspension and red calipers. Finishing off the exterior is a Kahn quad exhaust system exterior badging.
Behind the tinted privacy glass lies a world of plush leather and fine details. All the seats are outfitted with quilted and perforated Claret leather along with the center console, glove box, and door panels. Contrasting the Claret leather is a beautiful piano black wood trim in the dashboard and center console. The interior conversion is completed with a steering wheel with red stitching and a set of machined and ventilated foot pedals that beg the driver to explore the SUV’s limits of performance.
The entire Project Kahn Mercedes-Benz ML 350 Bluetec powered by Brabus is available for £58,875 (+/- 96,500 USD). Customers can also purchase individual accessories to create a unique ML-Class.
