The Wrath of Kahn Vengeance Coming To Geneva Motor Show
The boutique British car company has rebooted the gorgeous Aston Martin DB9.
Afzal Kahn was obsessed with classic Aston Martin designs of the ’80s and ’90s as an English schoolboy, and now Kahan’s eponymous car company will debut his own stylish take on the Aston Martin DB9 at the Geneva Motor Show March 1.

The Vengeance, Kahn’s toothsome reimagining of the Aston features hand-hammered aluminum bodywork of the sort that is still possible to make in England’s northern industrial region where the company makes its home in the Leeds suburb of Bradford. No word on whether the car’s name was influenced by another product of the ’90s, the Royal Navy strategic missile sub, HMS Vengeance.
The car rolls on sketchbook-friendly 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels, and the painted aluminum sheet metal is accented by polished stainless steel highlights around the window openings and on the roof.
Composite bumper covers, front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser all contribute to managing airflow under the Vengeance at high speeds for maximum stability.
Kahn promises additional details on his new notebook doodle brought to life “in due course,” so we’ll just have to suffer in frustration until then. “Kaaaahhn!!”
