Designer A.Kahn gives the Range Rover a ‘military’ makeover
After we had seen Project Kahn Rolls Royce a couple of years back, the Range Rover SUV receives a makeover under this project, now being called the ‘Military’ edition. Designed by Afzal Kahn, this luxury SUV receives several additions on the exteriors and interiors, which would be fit for being used by the military, but is meant for the rich consumer who likes being extra secure. Though a lot of the original form has been retained, but the additions quite the stylish element to the SUV.
Beginning with the chassis, a special grey color with black ascents has used to differentiate the vehicle from the anything else around. The lighting are LED versions of the existing designs, whereas additions have been made in terms of the grey carbon fiber finished inner grille with black mesh, front lip extension which also have a carbon fiber finishing, orange calipers, and mostly importantly, the tone matched bullet glassing and special Kahn RS/R allow wheels. Additions like these have retained the old form, but given the whole vehicle a rugged and technologically advanced aura.
The interiors have received a leather re-do with coloring job. The fabric used is a special grade of RS leather with grey and black insert panels, glove box with quilt finish, blue and yellow speed counter, blue clock with Swarovski bezels, and Kahn billeted steering wheel to name a few. The use of other colors such as blue or yellow adds a very special contrast from the otherwise decked up but monotonous interiors. However, if you wish to get a special color matched with the kind of clothing you wear, then you could ask the Project Kahn guys to do the job by matching it to the closest possible match. In the end, it is supposed to cost you $114,048 (£73,875) other than the customizations which you might order for.
