Hoewel de tuner aardig aan het sleutelen is aan diverse Range Rovers en ander leuk spul willen we de tuner nog geen legendarisch merk noemen. Cosworth is een ander verhaal, de motorenbouwer heeft in het verleden bewezen heel goed te weten waar ze mee bezig zijn.
De twee bedrijven hebben een samenwerkingsverband gesloten. Het eerste project wordt een Range Rover Sport die de naam Kahn Cosworth 300 mee gaat krijgen. Als basis zal de Range Rover Sport 4.2 V8 Supercharged worden gebruikt die standaard 390 pk heeft. Om concurrenten als de ML63 AMG en Cayenne in het vizier te krijgen moet Cosworth flink aan de bak. In juni zullen Projecy Kahn en Cosworth meer details geven over de Kahn Cosworth 300 Range Rover Sport.
A Kahn Design and Cosworth Engineering ‘The Perfect British Match’
When great minds come together great things happen. ….
No finer example of this is Cosworth and A Kahn Design teaming up to launch the ground-breaking Kahn Cosworth 300.
Cosworth, the globally recognised British brand leverages its successful motor sport pedigree, performance technology expertise to provide high quality engineered solutions by building superior engines.
Regarded as one of the most celebrated and influential bespoke car designers England has ever produced; Afzal Kahn grew up living, breathing and dreaming of beautiful cars. He provides premium lifestyle design packages to people with the desire to own cars that are truly personal.
The principal British designer believes A Kahn Design and Cosworth is indeed the perfect match. And after a year of vigorous research and development; the official contract signing took place at Cosworth’s head quarters in Northampton on: 26th March 2008.
Afzal Kahn said: “I am delighted to have secured such a prestigious deal with an iconic British brand. The very thought of driving a Kahn Cosworth is truly sensational. Let there be no doubt, owners and drivers of the Kahn Cosworth will enjoy a great deal of motor supremacy.
“A Kahn design is a British success story – our entire ethos is all about British styling. There is no one better than us because we only accept sophistication and perfection.
“The Kahn Cosworth is just the beginning; I intend to put the British motor industry back on the map.
“I will now step up my search for a Cosworth Brand Manager and a team of marketing professionals in order to promote the Kahn Cosworth brand vigorously.”
Tim Routsis, CEO and Managing Director of the Cosworth Group, commented: “over the last three years the engine tuner market has become very important for Cosworth, we have successfully steered our products and services towards high end users. We are confident, that in partnership with Kahn Design, select consumers will be delighted to own distinctively styled cars with Cosworth tuned engines.”
A Kahn Design’s Commercial Director Adrian Taylor said: “Prominent personalities such as Jeremy Clarkson have in the past; lamented the lack of British tuners and designers.
“However, A Kahn Design and Cosworth are two great British companies with precipitous tradition and history. Afzal Kahn wants to fly the flag. We should support British companies and embrace new innovations such as the Kahn Cosworth. It is time we put the UK automotive Industry back where it should be on top of the world.”
“With Cosworth on board as the power behind our tuning programmes; the launch of our revolutionary Range Rover Cosworth in June 2008 will certainly make a big impact all around the world.”
