The Wide Body Supersport Panamera With Body Kit and Porsche Rims

Although it has created both positive and negative comments from the automotive enthusiast community and general public, the Porsche Panamera has been quite successful throughout its production run since the middle-2000s, and has even resulted in a new generation of models. The outgoing generation of the Panamera offered a great blend of luxury and capability along with the sporty character that the German automaker is known for with their automobiles. One British aftermarket tuning company is now offering customers a new upgrade kit that adds an even sportier character to the exterior and ride thanks to a new wide body supersport kit and new Porsche rims, along with a custom-tailored plush interior to suit any taste imaginable.

The four-door coupe styling of the Panamera gave it a sleek profile and more athletic look than other luxury sedans in the segment. The engineers and designers at the British aftermarket company decided to take advantage of this by creating a new body kit from a mix of carbon fiber and polyurethane with an OEM quality fitment that emphasizes sport, power, and performance even more.

The new wide body supersport upgrade kit starts out at the front where a new fascia with integrated LED daytime running lights in the air intake vents and a new spoiler lip generates downforce at the front axle while adding a touch of style. A new pair of front fenders extends outwards by a total of 80 mm and houses the new Porsche rims while also incorporating front and rear vents for better airflow. A set of side skirts run towards the rear where they are met by another pair of extended fenders at the rear axle with air vents. The enlarged fenders blend into the new rear bumper that features a new diffuser and exhaust outlets. A new rear trunk spoiler similar to that of the 911s creates downforce to keep both of the rear Porsche rims planted on the pavement.

In terms of performance, the British team installed a new sports suspension system along with a new stainless steel exhaust with special design. The suspension lowers the overall ride height by a total of 15 mm for better overall handling dynamics. The factory wheels and tires were both removed for new forged Porsche rims in a wider 9.5 x 20 front and 11.0 x 20 rear setup with corresponding sports tires and a slick matte black finish. Behind the wheels are newly painted gold brake calipers that contrast the black finish of each wheel.

Customers have a wide range of options with the Panamera when it comes to the interior. Special leather with a quilted design can be installed with soft alcantara on the seats, dashboard, doors, and console areas. New carbon fiber trim pieces, custom-tailored clocks, along with colored gauges can be installed as well. The British company will also build any type of special accessory for customers.

The Lamborghini Green Evoque by Afzal Kahn

When Land Rover/Range Rover designed the new Evoque crossover SUV, they wanted to appeal to a younger generation of buyer and expand its product lineup with a fresh, modern model that strayed away from their typical big SUVs and came in at a more affordable price point. The new Range Rover Evoque has successfully hit on all of those goals and has been quite successful for the British automaker in the first year of its availability. One British Designer however, wanted to give owners a greater range of customization with the new SUV so he penned a new upgrade program for both inside and out. Afzal Kahn was able to create a more aggressive and completely custom-tailored upgrade program that gives owners of the Evoque a wide range of options.

The first aspect of the Range Rover Evoque that was upgraded was the interior, which was given an array of custom luxury fittings to make it an enjoyable place to spend time. All of the seats were given soft black perforated nappa leather with quilted stitching, lime green inserts, and alcantara. Afzal Kahn opted to cover much of the dashboard, glove box, center console, and center arm rest in black nappa leather and alcantara with contrasting diamond stitching. Even the factory roof lining was replaced with alcantara along with each of the sun visors for a special look. The driver benefits from new machined and vented aluminum foot pedals, green tachometer and speedometer, and a new Churchill clock with Swarovski diamond bezel. Each of the door entry sills are made of stainless steel, piano black rounds off the dashboard trim, and Afzal Kahn’s final touch is the machined aluminum gear selector.

The next step for the Range Rover Evoque was the exterior. Here, the designer gave the SUV a Lamborghini green base color contrasted by gloss black paint. A new range of upgrades was also introduced, featuring a new front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights and a 3-D mesh grille that flows into the widened front and rear fenders. New fender vent inserts give the car a special look and follow the same design language of the stock model. At the rear, Afzal Kahn designed a new bumper with integrated diffuser and exhaust outlets. The final touch was a set of in-house RS-XF wheels with factory center caps in a 9.5 x 22 size at the front and rear axle.

All of the upgrades for the Range Rover Evoque are currently available and can be customized in a variety of colors, designs, and more by the British designer.
