We have to admit that creating a tuning package for an Aston Martin DB9 is very hard but as usual, Project Kahn managed to create something different. The Ferrari Bianco white Project Kahn DB9 Aston Martin Volante is a mix of style, elegance, majesty, tradition, comfort and practicality. And because we are talking about Project Kahn, don’t expect to see something flashy as the British tuner only added a Kahn Sports exhaust, Sports lowered suspension, red calipers and privacy glass.
The interior also received an upgrade and features black leather in cream stitching, secondary hide in cream and pearl grey interior detailing. Of course, the interior can be customized in every possible way.
The design of the car is completed by the unique 20” RSV Kahn lightweight wheels, in matt pearl grey. The engine of the car remained untouched and the Aston Martin DB9 comes with the standard 6.0-litre V12 engine mated to a six-speed ZF automatic with paddle shift and rear wheel drive.
Aston Martin revealed that its DB9 range will be getting a complete set of improvements in terms of engineering, style, and equipment. This will be the line-up’s most substantial upgrade to date since making its debut back in 2003. Known as one of the two most successful models of the brand, the other being the V8 Vantage, the DB9 has more than proven that it is truly the ultimate grand tourer as a result of its sporting qualities, genuine luxury, and modest elegance.
This new enhancement package is able to perfectly complement the core qualities of the brand. Take notice of the subtle style especially with the new bumper in the front, the radiator grille with its bright finish, and the lower intake that has been re-shaped and has the bright hexagonal mesh.
With these, it is able to give the look of the DB9 that refreshing change. Rounding up the changes to the exterior are the diamond turned 20-spoke alloy wheels, brake calipers in silver, re-styled sills, and headlight bezels. It is not only the exterior that experienced changes but the interior as well. To improve the ride comfort, the DB9 is equipped with the Adaptive Damping System, also known as the ADS, instead of the passive damping system.
When changed to the Sport Mode, this system also ensures sharper handling. This particular system is fitted across the DB9 line-up which includes the Coupe and the Volante convertible. There is also the tire pressure monitoring system with the Bluetooth microphone system being modified. By putting in the Bang & Olufsen hi-fi options and the alloy Double Apex finish trim, it widens the specification list for the DB9.
Aston Martin Chief Executive Dr Ulrich Bez confirmed that the DB9 continues to be a truly special car as it is the ideal sporting grand tourer which delivers an unmatched mix of refinement, character, luxury, and driver involvement. With the DB9, he added, Aston Martin was able to combine its very own character with the excellent craftsmanship and signature performance ability of the brand, as well as its uncompromising design philosophy.
