We have witnessed several modifications done by mod brands on the new Land Rover Defender that shift its tough and rugged persona, into a modern, cool appearance that should be appreciated by the other group of Land Rover customers but this very one takes the crown. The overall look sports a two-tone theme, inside and outside showing very well that this will set itself apart from the factory Defender. Of course, if you’re buying into a modifying brand such as Kahn Automobiles, you’d be looking for a sense of uniqueness and having a car that no one will encounter twice on weekdays.
The Vesuvius Edition, that’s what it is called, is based on the Defender 110 trim which comes with four doors and it is a step-up model from the Defender 90. The overall paintwork is finished in Santorini Black with the hood receiving a distinct Vesuvius Orange stripe with Kahn lettering just on top of the Gloss black front grille. The front bumper lip spoiler continues with the orange colour as well as the bottom part of the grille. It looks really good and if someone were to explain how it looked, you wouldn’t like the idea until you got to see it, that is what is happening here.
There is privacy glass included in this mod package alongside Kahn’s individual crosshair exhaust system made out of stainless steel and it is available with a choice of either a matte black or chrome finish. Then as you move to the side you are met with these 22-inch Black Kahn RS-forged wheels wrapped in Copper tyres and that signs off the whole look as being really attractive and giving it presence when on the road.
As you step inside, you are staggered by the Volcanic orange livery on the lower part of the dash panel, the sides on the centre console, on the centre steering wheel and the door panels. The contrasting colours work well with the black upholstered leather seats which apply a combination of luxury and toughness, it’s very rare to experience such in any production car.
There are extensive materials and colours to choose from when speccing the interior look because bespoke treatment provides customers the chance to explore their imagination and materialize that into reality, that is what Kahn Automobiles is offering.
