Kahn Design’s first coach-built Aston Martin DB9, better known as the Kahn Vengeance DB9, enjoyed a successful event at the Top Marques Monaco a few weeks ago. But the real treat for the fans was seeing this car out and about on the streets of the Principality.
With its bespoke body and weird wheels, not to mention cool paint job, Kahn Vengeance DB9 is an absolute stunner and a much more appropriate homage to the late DB9 than what Aston themselves came up with. The thing is though, an exquisite car like doesn’t feel at home just anywhere, which is probably why Kahn held on until they could shoot the car with Monte Carlo as the backdrop. The scenery brings out the really beauty of this car.
As for the technicalities, Kahn Vengeance DB9 is based on a pretty much stock DB9 chassis and gets the same V12 engine as well. Some of the highlights include a composite front bumper, a carbon fibre front splitter, a billet aluminium grille and 21” rear and 20” front wheels, as well as a custom interior which will be bespoke to the individual who orders this built-to-order car. The Vengeance is more of a cruiser, a posemobile, rather than a V12 thoroughbred. It’s a good job then they didn’t base it upon the DBS.
