For those who got their hands on a limited edition Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography, Kahn Design has just put together a tuning package for you. Already bored of the 510-hp from the supercharged 5.0L V8 engine? Turn over to Kahn Design and get that bumped up to 600-hp. Plus, Kahn also offers a 10-piece body kit, making your limited edition vehicle even more special.

Kahn’s RS600 kit adds 90-hp to the Range Rover Sport Autobiography courtesy a “performance upgrade” – which we think is just code-speak for an ECU retune. A Project Kahn Super Sound exhaust is also bolted on for a deep rumble and probably contributes to the 90-hp increase.

On the outside is an extensive 10-piece body kit, transforming the visuals of the Range Rover Sport Autobiography to something much more aggressive and sporty. But the luxury remains inside, with a quilted leather interior, glove box and dashboard. The steering wheel and gear shift are also reupholstered in leather. And to make things a little more exciting, the gauge cluster receives an electric blue treatment.

Finishing off the entire package is fancy set of Kahn 22-inch RS wheels with tires. No pricing is mentioned, but we’re guessing if you got your hands on this limited edition luxury SUV, you can easily toss a few tens of thousands of dollars towards personalizing your autobiography.

PRESS RELEASE

Project Kahn is pleased to announce the launch of their new 2010 Range Rover Sport Supercharged RS600 Autobiography Sport with a full Kahn Design conversion

The Range Rover Sport RS600 takes vehicle customisation to the next level. With more focus on the owner, the conversion consists of an outstanding new ten piece Kahn body kit complete with a sports exhaust system and colour code. The kit has been developed by our Project Kahn design team and has undergone many hours of testing not only to ensure safety but also to guarantee that perfection is achieved with every car.

The RS600 package includes a complete interior styling package which sees the introduction of the new bespoke quilted leather interior range to the front and rear seats, glove box and dash board. The steering wheel and gear shift benefit from contrast stitching applied against the black leather adding beautiful texture, distinct style and the ultimate comfort. The speedometer, rev counter and clock, feature a shock of electric blue whilst all the while complementing the original design. Everything about the Kahn RS600 exudes style, from the stainless steel door entry sills, side vents foot pedals even down to the smallest of touches such as the Kahn leather key ring.

Their machined billet steering wheel is also available for the Range Rover and the Discovery. Manufactured in Italy and built using the original Land Rover component guarantees an exact fit, fully operational controls and driver airbag functionality. The standard frame is enhanced with a motorsports inspired contoured form and grip and finished in the highest grade lightweight billet aluminum and leather.

Each RS600 is fitted with the Project Kahn Super Sound exhaust system which emits a unique sound emanating from the car as a deep rumble. If that’s not enough the RS600 has undergone a performance upgrade, now benefitting from Kahn Intelligent Power offering an impressive 600 BHP.

The RS600 truly captures Project Kahn’s ideology of creating individuality which is enhanced by the inclusion of the Kahn 22” RS Alloy Wheel and Tyre package. The elegant and sculpted alloy wheel designs are created through skilled artistic innovation, state-of-the art manufacturing and advanced material technology.
