Reviewed: Project Kahn Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 2.0 TD4 SE Tech 5DR LE
The Project Kahn Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 2.0 TD4 SE Tech 5DR LE edition conveys design excellence.

However, is the confident styling backed up by all-round quality? Kahn News takes centre stage with a welcome opportunity to review this much sought after vehicle.
This is an individual creation, no doubt about it.

Prepared by highly skilled, experienced specialists, using a combination of hi-tech materials and artisan craftsmanship, the performance orientated design and Yulong White paintwork is rather nonchalant.

Drive

The ride and handling is something special. There’s nothing special about the way it rides on the open road with 9.5” x 22” LE wheels.

This is a very well-rounded machine, purists might think its some fancy bit of machinery, but what it really is, is a selfless being, full of graceful purpose, devoid of a personality disorder most often associated to ineffective Prima Donnas.

The new package for the Range Rover Evoque includes a new front bumper replacement with integrated vents that feature 3-D mesh inserts.

The factory front grille was also replaced whilst new headlights shine on either side of the newly installed bumper. Furthermore, “KAHN” lettering proudly sits on the front bumper.

Towards the rear, a new bumper was fitted to the Range Rover Evoque that features integrated vents and an exhaust diffuser. In the middle of that diffuser sits a pair of dual stainless steel cross-hair exhausts that give the SUV more attitudes on the streets, you know you're dealing with something rather special.

Bespoke


From the classy quilted and perforated leather and quality build to the serene layout - a multitude of improvements to the interior allow the driver to bask in the sheer opulence on offer.

The front and rear seats have been trimmed in Ebony Leather, Herringbone style, with Silver contrast stitching along with the a centre glove box.

Stainless steel door entry sill plates will greet passengers and pair perfectly with high-quality carpeted floor mats. A diamond gear selector, and machined and ventilated aluminium foot pedals add to the driving experience.

The company philosophy is to always give the customer what they want, so Afzal Kahn could for example, design you a vehicle with a full colour change (to a colour of your choice) and an interior akin to, let’s say your favourite leather reclining chair in your living room.

Customers could also change the colour of the clock, or indeed, ask for anything else: The ability to put together a limitless palette of colours into the fabric, leather, trim pieces, and more is there for all to see.

Verdict


An exceptional driving machine – the Project Kahn Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is quality personified!

One minute it’s a fierce machine, next minute: it’s a city slicker. Once it’s time to hand the keys back however, you’ll be sorely tempted to drive the Evoque again. Akin to an obsession, you will just want to get back into the driving seat as soon as possible.
