Project Kahn's Wedding Commemorative Maybach 57 – Click above for high-res image gallery

Perhaps you've heard: two young Britons are getting hitched on Friday, April 29th, 2011. To mark the occasion, the groom, one William Arthur Philip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor, better known as Prince William of Wales, and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton, have been "honored" by exotic car customizer, Project Kahn.

The Project Kahn Wedding Commemorative Maybach 57 (what, no Bentleys or Rolls-Royces lying around the shop, guys?) is a blatant PR grab "tribute" to the new royal couple that will have nothing at all to do with the royal wedding itself reside at Project Kahn's Bradford headquarters. The touched-up super Benz features Kahn-designed 22-inch wheels, smoked glass, an upgraded interior and darkened taillamps. It also wears the license plate, "4 HRH", which means For His Royal Highness.

Project Kahn's Wedding Commemorative Maybach 57

The ultimate commemorative vehicle to mark HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding day.

Previous royal weddings have often been marked by commemorative stamps, coins and a range of memorabilia.

However, Afzal Kahn has released the ultimate commemorative item to mark HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding day.

The pearl white Project Kahn Maybach 57 complete with the regal-sounding number plate: 4 HRH – is the ultimate European luxury saloon, sitting magnanimously at Project Kahn headquarters in Bradford as a fitting tribute to the royal couple.

The principal British designer truly believes the Project Kahn Maybach 57 and the 4 HRH number plate is the ultimate tribute for the future king of England and his bride.

"Project Kahn understands the meaning of traveling in style and with the conversion we perform on this prestige vehicle there is no more of a stylish way to travel," said the British designer.

"The 4 HRH number plate is worthy of befitting a vehicle such as the Project Kahn Maybach 57. And as a proud Englishman and designer, this is our way of wishing the royal couple many happy years together."

You never know, Project Kahn's Maybach 57 complete with the 4 HRH number plate may yet make a grand entrance in London very soon!

      Bentley or Rolls might seem more appropriate, but let's not forget that the British royals are actually kinda German.

      Is it just me, or does that car have two sets of calipers on the front rotor?

      Why are we celebrating a family whose wealth was acquired forcefully again? /coming from someone who lives in a former UK Dominion.

        Those were times of true leaders who had actually some common sense and vision for their nation/country/kingdom. Compare it to todays merkels, obamas, rumpuys, ...

        Why we're celebrating a marriage of two people we don't know?

      Nothing succeeds like excess. The bride and groom are reportedly anti-flash. This piece is easily what they're against. This is somebody's wet dream, passed over committee objections. It'll eventually be taken home by the boss after interest wanes, say in June.
