Based on Aston Martin DB9 chassis, Vengeance By Kahn Design








Vengeance By Kahn To Be Displayed At Top Marques, Monaco

This year’s Top Marques event at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco will feature the Vengeance by Kahn, a new coach built two-door coupe which represents a stunning synthesis of modern engineering and classic streamlined design. 

The Vengeance will be available to view at stand E4 for the duration of the show, with a second model available outside the forum for test drives.

Inspired by the Aston Martin designs of the 1980s and 90s, the Vengeance is the conclusion of British designer Afzal Kahn’s lifelong pursuit to design the car he has always wanted to drive.

Designed to hark back to the glory days of British coach building, the hand built Vengeance is a coach built two door coupe based on a new Aston Martin DB9 chassis.

Face on; the redesigned front bumper and wide spaced grille give the Vengeance an aggressive look, framed by widened front wings which merge seamlessly into the doors.

The signature central bulge of the bonnet continues to the highly defined lines of the roof, which flow outwards to the widened C-pillars and rear wings, lending a muscular definition to the car\\\'s surfaces.

The chrome roof halo curves around the large rear window to the reshaped rear where a redesigned bumper assembly houses a purpose designed crosshair exhaust system and rear lighting.

The lightweight sculpted wheels are a perfectly balanced modern take on a retro style. The multi spoke design and inner rim takes inspiration from the classic roulette wheel, with a two tone finish juxtaposing the central section in body colour with the diamond cut outer section.

The number of spokes increases from sixteen at the front to eighteen at the rear, lending extra visual weight to complement the augmented rear wings. This bias is reinforced by the varied width of the tyres, 225 at the front, increasing to an extreme 335 at the rear.

Mr. Kahn believes this is coach building in its traditional sense - taking a tried and tested product and working solely on the aesthetic.

\\\"Everyone who’s seen the Vengeance so far has given us such good feedback – people are amazed by the quality of the hand crafted finish. It goes to show that traditional British coach building methods can produce something truly unique.\\\" said Afzal Kahn.

\\\"Following a successful launch at the Geneva Motor Show earlier in the year, I’m delighted to be able to bring the Vengeance to Monaco for such a prestigious event.\\\" 

With the price of hand built sports cars rising, the Vengeance is likely to prove a sound investment, and is expected to represent extremely good value for a limited edition coach built car. 

The Vengeance by Kahn will be on display at Top Marques, on Stand E4 for the duration of the show, which takes place from Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th April 2016.
