As a norm, I’m usually don’t care for too many change from the original design and the RS500 doesn’t change my mind. It’s got some neat tweaks but they seem to be a bit overdone. And even though their interior looks great, it appears you have to sacrifice cooled seats for their interior trim package.
And finally, I will say, this RS500 seems like a Range Rover you’d see in the Star Trek “Mirror, Mirror” or Fringe alternate universes. You know it’s a Range Rover, but it has an odd looking goatee.
And I would like to hear how different their exhaust package is from stock!

The Range Rover 4.4 litre diesel (RS500) takes vehicle refinement to the next level. With more focus on the owner, the conversion consists of an outstanding new ten piece body kit complete with a sports exhaust system. The aerodynamic styling package sees the introduction of a brand new bespoke front bumper with fog lamp surrounds in billet steel finish, rear bumper replacement with exhaust diffuser, side skirts, matt black side vents with double mesh, and rear quad stainless steel exhaust system by Cosworth. The kit has been developed by A Kahn -the designer himself and has undergone many hours of testing not only to ensure safety but also to guarantee that perfection is achieved with every car. The body kit has been certified (TUV) and approved by German automobile authorities.
The RS500 package includes a complete interior styling package which sees the introduction of the new bespoke quilted leather interior range to the front and rear seats, glove box and dash board. The steering wheel and gear shift benefit from contrast silver stitching applied against the black leather adding beautiful texture, distinct style and the ultimate comfort. The speedometer, rev counter and clock, feature a shock of electric blue whilst all the while complementing the original design. Everything about the Kahn RS500 exudes style, from the stainless steel door entry sills; side vents foot pedals even down to the smallest of touches such as the Kahn leather key ring.
Their machined billet steering wheel is also available for the Range Rover and the Discovery. Manufactured in Italy and built using the original Land Rover component guarantees an exact fit, fully operational controls and driver airbag functionality. The standard frame is enhanced with a motorsports inspired contoured form and grip and finished in the highest grade lightweight billet aluminum and leather.
Each RS500 is fitted with the Project Kahn Super Sound exhaust system which emits a unique sound emanating from the car as a deep rumble. If that’s not enough the RS500 has undergone a performance upgrade, now benefiting from Kahn Intelligent Power offering an impressive 500 BHP on the diesel edition.
The RS500 truly captures Project Kahn’s ideology of creating individuality which is enhanced by the inclusion of the Kahn 22” RSX Alloy Wheel and Tyre.
