Audi’s Q7 isn’t exactly a new kid on the block, the full-size SUV has been around for six years already and is due for replacement soon. Despite this fact tuning companies are still having fun with the old girl with the latest bespoke Q7 coming from British firm Project Kahn.
Project Kahn is becoming an Audi specialist with TT and A5 packages already available, so it was only a matter of time before the tuning firm would get busy on the Q7.

It’s never appealed to all tastes but there’s no denying that the Range Rover Sport is the toughest looking SUV on the road. It’s also a strong candidate for tuning treatment to make it even more desirable. The latest tuning firm to get into the Range Rover is Project Kahn who has unleashed a new customized version called the Miyagi edition.
It’s not named after Mr Miyagi from Karate Kid fame (although he was an accomplished car restorer in his own right), but it was created with a view to helping the earthquake/tsunami victims in Japan. Project Kahn hopes to use the striking model as a means to raise awareness and have customers donate to the displaced people of Japan.
The current Range Rover Sport is apparently the last Land Rover product to use the company’s special Bali Blue hue. This has given Project Kahn the opportunity to build a very unique vehicle.
In addition to the special paint work, the Miyagi edition sports a contrasting black matt paint finish for the roof, the central part of the bonnet and the exterior trim details such as the side air vents. Read the rest of this entry »
