It’s not our fault that we feature the guys at A. Kahn Design pretty often here, it’s just that this tuning firm comes up with a lot of new and exciting projects every single month. The specialists from Kahn have just presented the RS300 Vesuvius Edition, bringing a brand new look to the Range Rover.

The tuning package sports an aerodynamic body kit with an RS front grille with tri-dimensional mesh, RS vented front wheel arches with built-in front air dams, front wheel arch LED light strips and a brand new lower front bumper lip extension. In addition, A. Kahn have fitted the car with orange brake calipers, Kahn Enamel wing shields and a painted floating roof and hood stripe.

Besides the fact that it was fitted with RS black wheels with a rather cool orange stripe, measuring 10.5 x 22 inches at the rear and 9.5 x 22 inches at the front, the car’s interior features diamond quilted and perforated black leather with orange trim, Kahn Vesuvius speedometer and vented foot pedals in machined aluminum. In addition, the RS300 Vesuvius Edition sports illuminated door entry sill plates in stainless steel, an orange rev counter and a privacy tinted glass.

Getting to our favorite part, the engine is a 3.0-liter SDV6 which delivers 256 HP (191 kW) at 4,000 RPM and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque at 2,000 RPM. Thanks to these figures, the RS300 Vesuvius Edition accelerates from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a respectable 8.4 seconds. Power gets distributed to the drivetrain via a brand new ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic gearbox, which allows for faster gear shifting and lower fuel consumption.
