2017 Kahn Vengeance Volante revealed at Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on March 13, 2017

Following the successful launch of the original Vengeance at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, Khan Design unveils a convertible version of the coupe this year – the Vengeance Volante.

The new vehicle’s bodywork will have a special front fascia featuring large black grille and vertical slats. As a special model, both its front and rear bumpers have been refashioned for it to become more distinct from its donor car.

Taking a closer look at the rear specs, apparent qualities of the Aston Martin DB7 Zagato can be seen such as sweeping streamlined curves and round shape taillights and outstanding trunk lid spoiler. The two-tone roulette-like alloy wheels with dimensions of 20 inches at the front axle and 21 inches at the back have been sourced from the sedan from where the cabriolet has also inherited the exhaust system with dual exhaust tips featuring crosshair design.

On the other hand, there is no extreme upgrade in the inside of the supercar. However, its reupholstered seats in black leather and starring silver accents all over the cabin for a contrasting effect are undeniably noteworthy. Its door tops and door top inserts along with a fluting design on the centre of the armrest through to the parcel shelf is a beautiful example of British craftsmanship.

Unlike regular DB9 Volante hardware, Vengeance Volante is designed to use aspirated 6.0-liter V12 engine producing 510 horsepower (380 kilowatts) and 457 pound-feet (620 Newton-meters) of torque.

Khan says that creating the convertible and unique version of the Vengeance was indeed a challenge to the company. Given the distinctive coach built nature of the vehicle, they have achieved a true British fashion and they are positive that it will be given the same enthusiastic reception as the original model did in 2016.

The Vengeance Volante will be very rare as only 3 will ever be built. Two in RHD layouts and another one set to be built in left-hand-drive design. All these three convertibles are added to the existing coupes, one of which is available for purchase on Khan’s website at a yet to be disclosed price tag.

According to Autocar, the redesigned Volante version starts at 480,000 pounds (about $585,300) without additional goodies on top yet. Investors and collectors are advised to place early orders to get the most favorable transaction.

Last but not the least, aficionados can expect Aston Martin’s all-new DB11 Volante at a more discounted rate in the spring of 2018. But don’t fret; a major and groundbreaking reveal might arise before the year ends.

UNVEILED: VENGEANCE VOLANTE BY KAHN

World premiere of the Vengeance Volante by Kahn at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Following the successful launch of the original Vengeance at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, this year will see Kahn Design debut a new convertible variant, the Vengeance Volante.

Like its predecessor, the Vengeance Volante is built on Aston Martin’s bonded aluminium and composite VH platform, chosen for its lightweight strength and torsional resistance, and is manufactured in the UK using traditional British coachbuilding techniques.

The Vengeance Volante’s sweeping streamlined curves take inspiration from classic Aston Martin designs of the late twentieth century, swapping the contoured roof of the original Vengeance for a cabriolet hood, while retaining the distinctive widened C-pillars and wings.

Details such as the purpose designed crosshair exhaust system and rear lighting, as well as the lightweight sculpted wheels are a nod to the Volante’s heritage, but with the top down, the lower profile silhouette enhances the muscular proportions of the car.

“Creating a convertible version of the Vengeance posed some challenges, given the unique coach built nature of the vehicle, but we’ve overcome them in true British fashion. Following a detailed programme of testing, I’m delighted to be able to unveil the Vengeance Volante at this year’s show, and I’m confident it will receive the same enthusiastic reception as the original model did in 2016,” Afzal Kahn said.

As with the hard top model, the Vengeance Volante will be produced in limited numbers, and investors and collectors alike are invited to place orders early to avoid disappointment.

Inside, the Black luxury leather fluted front and rear seats have been handcrafted and stitched by our team of experts. Furthermore, door tops and door top inserts along with a fluting design on the centre armrest through to the parcel shelf is a beautiful example of British craftsmanship at its best.

The Vengeance Volante will be on display for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, Stand 6338.
