A supercar owner and connoisseur since his late teens, British designer Afzal Kahn has always sought to push the boundaries of automotive design, developing a distinctive, aggressive style. Inspired by the Aston Martin designs of the 1980s and 90s, the Vengeance is the culmination of Kahn's lifelong pursuit to create the car he has always wanted to drive. His personality is evident in every curve of the coachbuilt body, the result of a painstaking design process, working and reworking each line and surface to the point of perfection.
The Vengeance is the realisation of a dream reaching back to 2006 when Afzal Kahn,
founder and creative director of A. Kahn Design,originally envisaged the project and began work on the initial sketches.

The design is a fusion of modern aesthetics with retro classic
inspired styling, emphasising volumes and curves over angular surfaces.
The exterior of The Vengeance has been reimagined and enhanced.
Every inch of the car is the outcome of a painstaking design process,
working and reworking each line to the point of perfection.

SPECIFICATION
Vengeance Grille in Billet Aluminium
The distinctive wide spaced grille is machined from billet aluminium, and gives the Vengeance its unmistakable identity.

Aerodynamic Carbon Lower Bumper Splitter
The carbon splitter reduces the visual mass of the front of the car, while aiding aerodynamics.
WB12 9" x 20" Front Wheel & 12" x 21" Rear Wheel
The staggered aluminium wheels (Front sixteen spoke 20" wheel / Rear eighteen spoke 21" wheel) are inspired by late 80s wheel designs and recall the shape of a roulette wheel, with the centre painted to match the body colour.
Hammer Formed Aluminium Bonnet with Power Bulge
An enlarged power bulge draws attention to the 6 litre V12 engine beneath and flows organically into the central bulge of the roof.
Hammer Formed Gilled Side Vents
The fender vents are inspired by classic Aston Martin designs.
Hammer Formed Aluminium Front Wide Wings
The widened front wings in hammer formed aluminium flow seamlessly into the bulge of the doors, creating a muscular outline.
Hammer Formed Aluminium Roof with Bulge *
Lines created by the bonnet power bulge are continued across the roof of the car, leading the eye to the powerful rear haunches and emphasising the muscular stance of the wide body.
* this is an optional extra
Hammer Formed Aluminium Door with Bulge
The doors continue the signature bulge from the front wings and flow into the widened rear haunches.
  Polished Stainless Steel DLO Trim
Polished stainless steel trim along the edge of the side windows reinforces the coupe shape of the Vengeance.
Sculpted Side Skirts in Lightweight Composite
Sculpted side skirts in lightweight composite connect the widened front wings and rear wide body.
Polished Stainless Steel Roof Halo *
Polished stainless steel detailing surrounding the aluminium roof and rear glass draws the eye across the top of the car and highlights the width of the rear wings in relation to the cabin.
* this is an optional extra
Hammer Formed Aluminium Rear Wide Body
Wide, muscular rear haunches emphasise the power of the rear wheels, and lend the Vengeance a purposeful stance on the road.
Coupe Style Rear Quarter Light
The diminished rear quarter lights enhance the coupe appearance of the Vengeance.
Sculpted Rear Bumper in Lightweight Composite
Subtle surfacing details in the composite rear bumper draw attention to the distance between the taillights and emphasise the width of the vehicle.
LED Roulette-style Tail Lights
Wide-set tail lights combine a timeless round graphic inspired by British and Italian coachbuilt designs with modern LED technology.
Sculpted Rear Bumper Diffuser in Visual Carbon
The form of the rear diffuser and vents echoes that of the front bumper to give the sense of a pure, harmonious design to the car.
Stainless Steel Crosshair Exhaust Tailpipes
The signature crosshair exhausts provide a visual reference to Kahns history in the industry.

ALLOY WHEEL
The lightweight sculpted wheels are a perfectly balanced modern take on a retro style. The multi spoke design and inner rim takes inspiration
from the classic roulette wheel, with a two tone finish juxtaposing the central section in body colour with the diamond cut outer section.
The number of spokes increases from sixteen at the front to eighteen at the rear, lending extra visual weight to
complement the augmented rear wings. This bias is reinforced by the varied width of the tyres, 225 at the front,
increasing to an extreme 335 at the rear.
EACH VEHICLE IS HAND BUILT BY KAHN'S CHOSEN CRAFTSMEN
The Vengeance is the work of a team of over 40 automotive experts
and every vehicle will be built on a brand new chassis supplied directly from Aston Martin.
The Vengeance is built on Aston Martin's bonded aluminium and composite VH platform, chosen for its
lightweight strength and torsional resistance, and manufactured in the UK
using traditional British coachbuilding techniques.”

In recognition of this significant investment into British manufacturing, Kahn Design was awarded the 2015 Best Newcomer
to the West Midlands for Design and Innovation Award at the annual 'Birmingham Made Me' award ceremony.
Origins
 
"The practice of automotive coachbuilding stretches back to the early 1900s, when discerning customers would employ the services of expert craftsmen to create a custom vehicle body on a pre-manufactured chassis. It’s been a longstanding ambition of mine to follow in this tradition and create a modern icon which will put British automotive craftsmanship back on the map."

"Launching the Vengeance is the realisation of a dream I've had since childhood, to design and produce my own car. I've worked in the industry my whole career, and I want to leave a legacy which I can be proud of. The design has gone through several iterations over the years and I've taken my time in selecting the right partners to prototype and manufacture the car, ensuring it represents the pinnacle of quality and perfection."

"The Vengeance underlines Kahn Design's expertise in design and coachbuilding. With a team of over 25 designers in house we're involved in all aspects of product design from automotive to timepieces, interiors, retail space, clothing and accessories."

"Aston Martin has always been an inspiration, in particular the early Vanquish and the V600 Vantage wide bodies. The Vengeance pays homage to those classic designs while using modern engineering to create something unique and original which reflects my own style."
