The first road car since the 1990s to wear the Cosworth badge will be announced later this week, CAR Online can reveal. The new Kahn Cosworth Range Rover Sport has been born of an unlikely alliance between Bradford-based premium styling outfit Kahn Design and old-school race engine builder Cosworth.
Full information on the new Cossie won't be released until later this week, but CAR Online has obtained this exclusive teaser image. It reveals a heavily revised Sport, with extended wheelarches, side sills and a pretty serious spoiler pack at the back (a ducktail? On a Range Rover?!).
Kahn Cosworth Range Rover Sport: the idea
Work has been going on behind the scenes for some time on a Cosworth engineered tuning package for Project Kahn’s range of bespoke Range Rover Sports. But with the ink now dry on the contracts and the relationship due to be announced later this week, the Bradford-based purveyor of blinging wheels and bodykits finds itself paired with one of the most respected names in the business and primed to hit the big time.
It's not clear yet exactly what engineering mods have been made by Cosworth, but our sources suggest the V8 supercharged model will put out well over the standard car's 400bhp. There will be upgrades to the chassis and brakes, too.
