Aluminum body for the Volante

W ie Even for the Vengeance Coupé, Kahn uses the tried and tested technology with the more than 500 hp V12 engine to tailor a heavily modified body made of hand-hammered aluminum. The same features are installed here as in the coupé. The radiator grille and the front apron, which has an additional carbon splinter, have been redesigned. A power dome piles up again on the new engine hood. As with the coupé, the convertible is also fitted with wide-body fenders made of aluminum. Ventilation gills were installed behind the front wheel arches. The doors were also re-planked, and the side sill panels were newly formed from carbon. At the rear with a new apron and a new carbon diffuser insert, new round tail lights set the tone. The rear end is rounded off by new tailpipes.

In the now widely exposed wheel arches, 20-inch wheels with 225/35 tires rotate at the front, while 21-inch rims with 335/25 tires have been fitted at the rear. Behind it, Kahn installed a carbon-ceramic brake system.

The six-liter V12 in the Vengeance develops 517 hp and 620 Nm, strong enough to accelerate the convertible to up to 295 km /h.

The Vengeance Volante should only be built in an extremely small edition.
