Project Kahn is an aftermarket tuner that doesn't seem afraid of messing with perfection. They've already tackled the Bentley Continetal GT, adding a body kit and other mods that take the elegantly styled coupe in a slightly different direction. And now they have taken on the Aston Martin DB9, a car many consider to be nearly perfect as is.
But just as Aston themselves have done with the new DBS version of the car, Project Kahn has added a body kit that takes away the slightly soft and purely elegant edge and replaced it with a more track-like lower treatment that gives the car a boy racer look and adds a certain edge to the design. For your 6,699-pound investment, you get a body kit that includes the revised front and rear bumpers, side skirts and decklid spoiler. For an extra 4,000 you can get the 20" Kahn RSV wheels, the very same wheels fitted to the Aston Martin DBS prototype.
Really it just seems like an easy way for current DB9 owners to get closer to the look of a DBS without dealing with another dealership experience. For good or bad, it is different and definitely more aggressive. For a further explanation of their newest product, read the Project Kahn release on the next page and check out the gallery below.

New from Project Kahn: The DB9S styling package for the DB9. The DB9S styling package provides a contemporary look that stays true to the original Aston Martin DBS style. Now the leading design house in the UK Project Kahn's team of dedicated designers recognise the importance of staying true to the original design themes of bespoke vehicles while providing a new and dynamic appearance that follows on the original contours of the car.
The DB9S styling package comprises of two front and two rear valance pieces, side skirts and rear boot lip spoiler. The addition of the front valance sections provides the aggressive front bumper and the moulded side skirts provide a 'low to the road' look which beautifully sets off the curves and flows of the original bodywork. The styling package is finished off perfectly by a set of 20" Kahn RSV alloy wheels, which Aston Martin actually used on their DBS prototype.
This package is an ideal way to transform a standard DB9 into the ultimate prestige marque. In an age when more and more individuals are able to afford luxury cars, the need to optimize their appearance becomes vital.
