Auto news release: INTRODUCING THE 3.0 SDV6 HSE – RS300 VESUVIUS EDITION BY A. KAHN DESIGN
Chic in personality and design – there’s nothing like the distinctive RS300 Vesuvius Edition – a true style icon.
The seductive proportions of this santorini black metallic and Vesuvius orange beauty results in a breathtakingly elegant vehicle that screams for attention.
The use of immaculate materials and outstanding build technology is truly extraordinary. An aerodynamically efficient exterior package consists of a lower front bumper lip extension, RS- front grille with 3D mesh, brake calipers finished in Vesuvius orange, RS vented front wheel arches with integrated front air dams, grille insert in Vesuvius orange, exhaust side vents in matte pearl grey & body colour, Kahn enamel wing shields, front wheel arch LED light strips, painted floating roof and bonnet stripe, door handles in matte grey and Kahn branding.
The 3.0 SDV6 engine offers lots of performance – 256hp at 4,000rpm coupled with 600Nm at 2,000rpm (torque) and this ensures the vehicle can go towards 60mph in just 8.4 seconds. Furthermore, the engine is connected to the new ZF 8HP70, eight-speed automatic gearbox, offering silky shifts and improved fuel economy.
Centered round 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.
Another unique feature of this model is the amazing interior which has been upgraded to a magnificent level with a RS Vesuvius style diamond quilted & perforated black leather interior with Vesuvius orange trim, diamond gear selector, interior facia trim pieces, Kahn Vesuvius speedo, vented foot pedals in machined aluminium, centre glove box – diamond quilt with carbon stripe, Kahn illuminated door entry sill plates in stainless steel, Kahn Vesuvius orange time clock, privacy tinted glass, seat logos, clock bezel surround finished with Swarovski diamonds, door panel tops in quilted and perforated leather with orange stitching, Kahn Vesuvius orange rev counter, Leather quilted binnacle and rear tailgate centre trim 3D carbon finish.
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 RS Black wheels with orange pinstripe 9.5 x 22\”(front) & 10.5 x 22\”(rear concaved) 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.
