London – October 2011 -
Afzal Kahn insists the Aston Martin DB9 was not designed to be a boy's toy. It was designed, says the principal British designer, “to be comfortable, elegant and a powerful long-distance vehicle.”
No doubt 007 himself would approve of both the vehicle and unique number plate attached!
The chassis on which the Kahn Volante also takes much of the credit - It's a mixture of extruded, stamped and die-cast aluminum, bonded together into an extremely light yet rigid superstructure. The shape, is beautifully proportioned and - unlike many convertible cars - looks the part whether the hood is up or down. The hood itself is a fully retractable soft top affair that folds down in 17 seconds, making it entirely possible to stow it when waiting at traffic lights without the risk of being embarrassingly caught half way through the process.
The Kahn Aston Martin Volante's silky styling package consists of a Kahn Sports exhaust, Sports lowered suspension, red calipers and privacy glass. Of course on smooth roads all is well, a 6.0-litre V12 engine, six-speed ZF automatic with paddle shift, rear wheel drive, electrically-retracting soft-top, an entertainment system that can easily compete with the wind noise and, best of all, the delicacy and razor-sharp engineering ensures it's certainly an interesting vehicle to drive.
The interior offers a sense of occasion unmatched at this point with beautifully finished dials, lustrous black leather in cream stitching, secondary hide in cream and pearl grey interior detailing. However, should you require an interior to match your exact specification, Afzal Kahn and his team will be more than happy to oblige.
Furthermore, our unique 20” RSV Kahn lightweight wheels, in matt pearl grey, exemplify what A. Kahn Design
is all about: creating something that is both unique but refined enough to both complement and enhance each and every vehicle.
Fans have already asked @Afzalkahn
if this vehicle will make an appearance in the latest installment of the 007 trilogy, well, all we can say on that score is, you'll just have to wait for the movie to come out in November 2012 to see if this particular Kahn vehicle or any other will be featured. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REGISTRATION NUMBER IS AVAILABLE BY SEPARATE NEGOTIATION & NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE!
