The Phantom Menace: Project Kahn mods the Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe
Few cars epitomize "the good life" quite like the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. But for some people, good isn't good enough. And for those people, there's Project Kahn, the blingtastic British tuning house which has just debuted its own custom DHC.
Central to Kahn's package are the special Silver Mist rims, specially made for the Rolls. They measure 22 inches in diameter, a steam-rolling 9.5-inches wide and are able to accept the RR hubs that keep themselves right-side-up. The package also includes a polished grille, special elm-wood veneers, embossed headrests, piano-lacquer steering wheel spokes, iPod connectivity and lambs' wool rugs. Kahn's treatment of the exclusive cabriolet adds another $50k to the bottom line, but somehow we doubt that anyone looking to buy a new Rolls these days would be deterred by some extra pocket change.
And just as we've all got used to the idea of the modern Rolls Royce, Project Kahn launch a new two-door version, exclusively designed to make the most stylish impact of them all.
Ever the aristocrats of the road, Project Kahn have infused a level of bespoke authenticity to the luxurious phantom Coupe that will bring back memories of the time honoured Rolls Royce tradition while providing up to date European styling keeping with the Rolls Royce ethos.
Arriving in the Project Kahn Phantom DHC at the Oscars or at the casino in Monte Carlo would ensure everyone will know someone special is about make a grand entrance; it is built to arrive.
The first thing that hits you is the sheer size of the thing; at over 18 feet long, it's 31 inches longer than a Range Rover Sport and, standing over 5ft tall, you'll never go unnoticed driving this car simply because there is nothing like it in the entire motor industry.
Dynamically this is no sports car but then that doesn't really matter as the coupe delivers something much more special to its occupants. If you want to be locked away in the ultimate cocoon of luxury then this is the car for you.
>From inside the cabin - you will never experience a car that's quieter than this one.
Then there's the way the enormous doors are hinged from the rear, making every time you enter the car feel very special.
To close, simply press the little button on the dash. That's why this car exists: to pamper its owners in sheer luxury; think of it as a super- exclusive mobile therapy experience without the scented candles or whale calls and you'll get the idea.
The foremost features of the phantom Coupe are exquisite to say the least. The wheel has been designed to take the original centre cap and has a meticulous diamond polish in each spoke, and the interior is truly sensational. Our new 9.5 X 22" Kahn Dark Mist Rolls Royce wheel is subtle, and provides OE fitment with superior style. This effortlessly compliments the Rolls Royce.
Now owners of the Rolls Royce Coupe can testify to the exuberance of passion and sumptuous beauty of Afzal Kahn's designs.
