One of the most intriguing tuning releases at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 is perhaps the Kahn Design Vengeance Volante. Based on the Aston Martin DB9 Volante, the British tuner once again gives Aston Martin enthusiasts an alternative.
Two years ago Kahn Design already revealed the WB12 Vengeance based on the DB9 coupé. Now Kahn Design is ‘back with a vengeance’, as they appropriately put it. Based on last year’s debut, they now offer open-top performance in combination with their custom design. Both the front and especially the rear are quite different from the conventional Aston Martin DB9.
Under the bonnet sits a rumbling 6.0-liter V12 good for 517 horsepower, taking the Vengeance Volante from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds. The top speed of the Kahn Design Vengeance Volante is set at 295 km/h.
Founder and CEO Afzal Kahn said: “creating a convertible version of the Vengeance posed some challenges, given the unique coach built nature of the vehicle, but we’ve overcome them in true British fashion. Following a detailed programme of testing, I’m delighted to be able to unveil the Vengeance Volante at this year’s show, and I’m confident it will receive the same enthusiastic reception as the original model did in 2016.”
