Kahn’s Tuned Range Rover Costs More Than A New Bentley Bentayga

The Bentley Bentayga V8 has a starting price of £136,200 ($173,418/€155,350) in the UK. For £3,799 ($4,837/€4,333) more, you could get this tuned Ranger Rover long wheelbase by Project Kahn.

Offered for sale by the British tuner here at £139,999 ($178,255/€159,684), the SUV is brand new and features a discreet exterior makeover, defined by the shadow chrome grille, black bumper inserts, carbon fiber front spoiler and vents and tinted glass.

The individual paint detailing and color coding, as well as the tinted rear glass and 23-inch black wheels wrapped in high-performance tires, complete the look.

Inside, Kahn has reupholstered the front and rear seats, door panels and armrests in quilted and perforated leather. The steering wheels is also wrapped in leather and there are new vented pedals in machined aluminum and special branding to further define the upgraded characteristics of the Range Rover.

Compared to the stock 5.0-liter V8 LWB model, Kahn’s interpretation adds a £25,000 ($31,831/€28,515) premium and comes bundled with other amenities straight from the factory such as keyless entry, four-zone climate control, voice control and the heated seats – to name but a few.

The question is, would you be willing to pay the sticker price for this tuned Range Rover or would you get the base Bentley Bentayga instead? You could also go for a fully loaded BMW X7, which starts from £98,160 ($124,983/€111,962) in the UK in the M50d grade or £17,000 ($21,645/€19,390) less for the xDrive40i.

    Nothing new here. The full-size Range Rover sits above the BMW and Mercedes brands and competes head on with Rolls and Bentley SUVs – it just starts at a lower entry price based on engines, etc., which also makes it a bargain for what it is. That’s why the Rolls Cullinan testing and engineers were spied testing the Rolls prototypes with FF Range Rovers – it sets the benchmark. And the Range Rover is phenomenal off-road unlike the Rolls or Bentley when it’s equipped with appropriate tires. The standard SVAutobiography starts around $200k I think and many bespoke SVO FF Range Rovers sell for around $300k-$400k or more. It would be interesting to see who sells more customized / bespoke vehicles – Rolls, Bentley, or full-size SVO Range Rovers.

    The long wheelbase looks so awkward and off.
