British tuning company Project Kahn will equip Land Rover’s new Range Rover Evoque five-door with Cosworth power.

The Kahn Range Rover Evoque powered by Cosworth has been confirmed on the firm's website alongside a solitary teaser image, with no further details revealed by the company. The most likely power source for the Evoque Cosworth would be Ford's 237bhp, turbocharged 2.0-litre Ecoboost unit, complete with a power boost from Cosworth as well as numerous dynamic and styling tweaks.

Sales of the standard five-door Evoque commence next summer alongside the three-door model. The five-door Evoque gets the same engine line-up as the three-door (148bhp or 187bhp 2.2-litre turbodiesels and a 237bhp 2.0 petrol turbo) and is available in both two and four-wheel drive.

The lower-powered, front-drive diesel three-door returns real-world fuel consumption close to 50mpg, with CO2 emissions below 
130g/km. The five-door, which has slightly more frontal area as well as the extra weight, is expected to be rated below 135g/km.

Range Rover Evoque

The Range Rover Evoque draws heavily on style as a selling point, but also possesses the substance to back it up

Oh dear oh dear oh dear, just the sort of wheels for the person who thinks that they need a different sort of attention seeking hot hatch. The Cosworth decal down the side says very tacky.

trafficker not dealer - although launderer would be probably a more accurate description of the business model before it became a car tuner/'stylist'.

he wasn't known as the 'Snowman' around Bradford because of a Cure like complexion or Aled Jones leanings.

Still - didn't stop him winning countless Chamber of Commerce awards for business without actually having to do much (legitimate) business.
