Cossie powered Evoque in the works

EPIC EVOQUE: Regulation fancy alloys apart, expect the Cosworth side-script to ensure a (very) high level of performance for the new Project Kahn Evoque.

Two well-known names in the British automotive industry are partnering to produce the first aftermarket modified version of Land Rover’s new Evoque.

Project Kahn (based in Bradford in Yorkshire) and Cosworth engineering, operating from its headquarters in Northampton, are  working on a tuning package for the new baby Range Rover.

A COSSIE EVOQUE?

Kahn’s radical Range Rover Vogue and Sport conversions are among the most flamboyant available for the classic British SUV brand.

The Bradford tuning firm has also partnered with Cosworth before, using suitably upgraded engine solutions for Project Kahn's Range Rover customers.

Azfal Kahn’s team of designers and technicians are working furiously to ensure the company's new Evoque package is ready for release in 2011.

A single image is the only information Project Kahn has released concerning its latest design project. If the firm’s previous offerings are anything to go by, expect a radically altered grille, headlights and bumper treatment all framed by suitably extended wheel arches.

The Project Kahn Range Rover Evoque will not be just a show pony. Cosworth’s share of the joint venture tuning project is a modified version of the Evoque's two-litre Ford EcoBoost engine.

With a history of outstanding competition and road-car engines, expect Cosworth to boost power for the Evoque from its series production number of 176kW to beyond 200kW.
