There’s only one fabric in the world that is governed by an act of Parliament, and that’s Harris Tweed. The material is only to be made from hand-woven, virgin wool, and dyed, spun, and milled only in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland before it receives an Orb stamp to authenticate it. With Harris Tweed being reintroduced into the world of high fashion, it was only a matter of time before A Kahn Design brought the special fabric into the interior of their cars.
“The road is my catwalk” is an idea that Afzal Kahn, Owner and Designer of A Kahn Design, lives by. His latest creation, the Range Rover with Harris Tweed is an example of this and blends fashion with automotive beauty.
The new Range Rover with Harris Tweed by A Kahn Design features a specially designed interior that features unique Harris Tweed. The seats are one of the most comfortable places to be, as they are finished with soft, perforated black buttoned and quilted leather with fine Harris Tweed inserts. A 24-piece piano black wood and billet steel trim set replaces the stock units along the dashboard and console. The soft touch dashboard, console, door panels, steering wheel, and glove box were given contrasting stitching by A Kahn Design to create an even more high-end, comfortable feel. Facing passengers is a Churchill time clock with Swarovski diamond bezel. New machined aluminum foot pedals complete the interior transformation of the new Range Rover.
The exterior of the A Kahn Design Range Rover is just as impressive as the interior transformation. The entire SUV was painted Storm Black Pearl and was fitted with an aerodynamic body kit. The front of the kit includes a new front bumper with 3-D grille, ring bezels, and integrated LED lights, and a new lower bumper section with grille. Each side boasts new side skirts with insert detailing, illuminated door sill plates, new door handles, and side vents. At the rear sits a new rear bumper and exhaust diffuser that preserves the clean, boxy lines of the SUV.
A Kahn Design also installed some of their special wheels and exhaust upgrades for the new Range Rover. Each of the brake calipers was finished in liquid gold to contrast the exterior Storm Black Pearl paint. A set of 22-inch, Kahn RS wheels with matte pearl grey finishes were fitted and feature original center caps. For a deeper tone and stylish look, the British Design house installed a stainless steel quad exhaust system.
The A Kahn Design Range Rover with Harris Tweed is currently available as an entire car and features £50,000 GBP worth of Harris Tweed upgrades. The entire vehicle is priced at £88,875.
