BMW X5 xDrive30d by Kahn

Project Kahn’s prominent figure, Afzal Kahn, has another mildly tuned SUV to show us and it’s one of those special surprises

Nothing outrageous, there’s no surprising million horsepower under the bonnet and the seats don’t even have ejector buttons.

The surprise with Project Kahn’s work is that this lightly tuned SUV is not a Land Rover made model. The British tuner actually took on a German.

It’s the Bavarian built BMW X5, particularly the xDrive30d version. You wouldn’t really be able to tell what model is on display but you certainly know what car we’re talking about.

Getting back to the actual tuning, obviously the big fat 22 inch RSL alloy wheels painted in a Silver Palladium finish.

The color of the wheels is only relevant if you’re to consider the way it makes the new stealthy black paint stand out from the crowd.

An eagle eyed enthusiast will notice that the BMW X5 xDrive 30d by Project Kahn also comes with an unusual brake caliper color for the Bavarians.

That’ll be a Liquid Red shade that’s usually reserved to some of the most agitated of sports cars. All of these details together should make for quite the performance package right?

Wrong, beyond the subtly refreshed exterior of the Kahn BMW X5 xDrive30d, we find nothing more than the standard performance drivetrain.

The interior of the X5 however, receives considerably more upgrades. Quilted perforated leather, carbon fiber inserts and new glove box

That’s quite the makeover in details but what is a rather questionable decision is the one that Kahn took when they swapped out the instrument panel.
