2012 Range Rover Sport Vesuvius by A. Kahn Design


This is the latest in the highly acclaimed Vesuvius series by the upmarket British tuning outfit.

The elite British aftermarket specialist has just revealed their latest Range Rover styling package dubbed the Range Rover Sport Vesuvius, a name they conceived back in 2005. Finished in a special version of Range Rover's orange, the latest package includes exterior and interior enhancements, as well as some extra features including a set of Kahn wheels. The Kahn LE exterior kit has been used for the Vesuvius, which includes a wide track aerodynamic styling package.

This consists of vented wide wheel arches and integrated LED daytime running lights, a quad stainless steel exhaust system, liquid gold calipers, RS front grille with a 3D mesh, a carbon-fiber grille insert, exhaust side vents and Kahn branding. Details on the paintjob include pearl grey door handles, Vesuvius orange side vents and a grille surround. Under the hood, the 3.0-liter SDV6 diesel engine has been tweaked to deliver 256hp and 443lb-ft of torque, and is linked to a new ZF 8HP70, eight-speed automatic transmission. A Drive Select rotary gear shift and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters have also been fitted.
