Range Rover Evoque by Project Kahn
Project Kahn has revealed their take on the Range Rover Evoque, with a cosmetic treatment but no Cosworth power boost.
Over a year ago – before the Range Rover Evoque started to hit the roads – Bradford car customiser Project Kahn revealed their take on the Evoque complete with unspecified Cosworth power upgrades. But that idea seems not to have borne fruit, and instead we get an Evoque from Kahn with a purely cosmetic take on Land Rover’s new baby.
Kahn has created a new colour palette for the Evoque, with a contrast roof colour which also gets applied to body detail such as side vents and headlights. Naturally, privacy glass comes in and you can choose a set of blingy alloys in sizes from 20″ to 22″ and painted brake calipers.
For some reason Kahn hasn’t sent us any interior photos of their Evoque, but it’s reasonable to assume we’ll see much use of quilted leather, perhaps some Alcantara slapped on the headliner, new finishes, aluminium pedals and some playing around with touchscreens.
As this is Project Kahn we’ve no doubt they will be happy to fulfil any colour combination you can come up with – and any choice of interior trim and extras – but we have to confess that the Project Kahn Evoque actually looks quite good. We’d prefer to have seen some nice Cosworth action going on with up to 300bhp from the Evoque’s Ecoboost lump, but this Evoque is a decent effort.
Subtle, even. Certainly by Kahn standards.
