Range Rover Evoque redesigned by Afzal Kahn (Photos)
One of the leading customized car makers in Europe, Kahn Designers are at it again and this time round it is the new Range Rover Evoque that gets a makeover. Kahn designs are well known for their modifications and redesigning to vehicle in the large and luxurious segment. Afzal Kahn is once again proud of his achievements where the luxury custom cars is concerned.
Kahn has put in thousands of hours of work on this redesigned Evoque thus ensuring that it is not looked upon as a run of the mill car but rather as something that stands apart from the rest. The customized Range Rover Evoque is christened Vesuvius and it is to be seen if this model lives up to its name and erupts with passion and fervor as its namesake Mount Vesuvius in Italy.
The customized Evoque from Afzal Kahn is seen with modified front and rear bumpers, two rear spoilers and brand new 22” Kahn Design alloy wheels. Its interiors are trimmed with Alcantara leather with carbon fiber accessories. Pricing is still unknown though the company expects to make these revelations in the not too distant future.
“It was a very complicated car to work but we worked within the factory style lines and I put heart and soul into this. We spent thousands of hours working on this car because I wanted to ensure it isn’t seen as a conventional car but as something more serious for the road”, as Afzal Kahn said.

A. KAHN DESIGN INTRODUCES THE RS250 VESUVIUS COPPER EVOQUE
London/July 2011 – Afzal Kahn’s latest project is this new mini-sport utility vehicle: the smallest ever Range Rover. We all know it’s called an Evoque, but allow A. Kahn Design to put into words just why this vehicle, complete with the enthralling Kahn Evoque kit sets the benchmark.
With over 90 percent of buyers set to be ‘newcomers’ to the product, and younger, more urban and a great deal more female than traditional customers – Afzal Kahn’s dalliance with the Evoque offers a whole new breadth of excitement, no doubt they’ll be reveling in ‘RS250’ shades of Vesuvius Copper!
And let Afzal Kahn be very clear: “This is how it should be done. I sat on the fence and waited until most of styling kits for the Evoque’s had been released,” said the principal British designer.
“It was a very complicated car to work but we worked within the factory style lines and I put my heart and soul into this. We spent thousands of hours working on this car because I wanted to ensure it isn’t seen as a conventional car but as something more serious for the road and I am quietly confident that our customers will enjoy a great deal of motoring supremacy with this outstanding vehicle.”
The A. Kahn Design Evoque is wholly unmistakable, with every external modification serving to coax greater performance from the car.
The Afzal Kahn touch includes a front and rear bumper boot spoiler that blends impeccably with the original design, central exhaust, fog lamps, LED running lights in front bumper, new front grille, Kahn lowering module, privacy glass, brake calipers finished in Vesuvius copper, vented foot pedals in machined aluminum, heated seats, floor mats, aluminum machined foot pedals and Kahn branding.
Centered around a radical design and interconnected in order to coalesce design and engineering expression, the Kahn cross hair exhausts in stainless steel reflect an attraction to a pluto-matic lifestyle: a first cousin only to silence, and manners.
Inside is the ‘bespoke touch’, this particular vehicle comes with front and rear seats in black quilted and perforated leather with Alcantara inserts and Vesuvius copper detailing, rev counter and speedo in red, centre glove box (diamond quilted), door entry sill plates in stainless steel, door panel tops in quilted and perforated leather, piano black carbon trim and Vesuvius sports steering wheel with copper stitching.
However, we always provide our customers with what they want. And Afzal Kahn could, for example, design for you a vehicle with an exterior the colour of your jeans and an interior with seats akin to the shade of, let’s say, a grey t-shirt. Customers could also change the colour of the clock, or ask for anything else, the world is their oyster, so to speak.
Kahn wheels sit perfectly on any vehicle, conveying the essence of the vehicle’s identity. Created using state-of-the art manufacturing and materials technology, the 9 x 22” (right offset) RS600 wheels in matt grey and fit all original centre caps. With simple clean lines, soft organic surfaces on the edge of the spoke and a purposeful mechanical centre, the RS600 wheels are synonymous with elegance and innovation.
A. Kahn Design is for the individual who will not submit to a life of uniformity and who will only accept perfection. Dedicated to the creation of luxury bespoke vehicles, we redesign the ordered monotony of mass produced vehicles and rebuild them into individually tailored creations.
