The Kahn Vengeance makes its debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2016. The British coach built special is built upon the basis of an Aston Martin DB9. It is said to have been designed with inspiration from the Aston Martin design’s of the 1980’s and 1990’s. We took a closer look at the car on display at Geneva
The Vengeance retains many of the features of the donor DB9 although all of the body panels have been replaced, save for the cant rails and bootlid. The silhouette is virtually identical; a two-door coupe with a front mounted engine. The Vengeance gets a new chrome front grille, bonnet and side vents. The back gets a new set of tail lights and a new rear bumper with plenty of carbon fibre.
The wheels are a multi-spoke design which apparently take inspiration from a classic roulette wheel. The finish is two tone with a body coloured central section and diamond cur outer section. They measure 225 at the front, increasing to an extreme 335 at the rear.
Underneath, the mechanicals are unchanged. The Kahn Vengeance therefore receives a 510 hp 6.0 litre V12 engine with 620 Nm of torque. The DB9 originally managed to spring to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, we suspect that the Vengeance will manage a slightly slower sprint.
Three are set to be produced with two coupes and three Volante convertibles at a cost of approximately £360,000. For more from the Geneva Motor Show 2016, take a look at our earlier article.
