Kahn Range Rover Sport Mille Miglia Edition revealed

Renowned European vehicle tuner and bodykit specialist Kahn has revealed its latest project, the Kahn Range Rover Sport Mille Miglia Edition. It features mostly cosmetic upgrades, giving the luxury SUV a more aggressive and out there look.

Naming a car after the Mille Miglia is a pretty big statement. The Mille Miglia was a famous road race that took place in Italy from 1927 until 1957. It incorporated some of the finest grand touring roads of Italy into one 1000-mile race, attracting manufacturers such as Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, as well as rival country makers such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

The event was eventually ended due to a series of fatal crashes, including one of the last incidents which took the lives of nine spectators, including five children. Up to 56 people died during the event’s 30-year run.

For the Kahn Range Rover Sport project, the Mille Miglia Edition features a chunky bodykit with pumped out wheel arches. The arches are custom-made items by Kahn, and feature aggressive vents at the back. At the front is an RS bumper bar with a big mesh grille and a vertical string of LED daytime lights.

Helping the big Range Rover to really stand out is a fresh red paint job. You don’t normally see red Range Rovers but this colour scheme certainly spices things up, and gives the normally grey or black SUV a brighter and more visually stimulating look.

Inside, Kahn installs an array of bespoke, elegant trimmings. There’s quilted leather seats with white stitching, a unique Kahn clock, aluminium pedals, and a Kahn instrument cluster and speedo.

Under the bonnet lies the factory 3.0-litre turbo-diesel engine. It produces 180kW of power and 600Nm of torque, which is enough to propel the SUV from 0-100km/h in around 9.3 seconds. There’s been no mention of any engine performance enhancements.
