Fresh from launching its take on the Range Rover and RR Sport, Khan has turned its hand to Porsche's formidable saloon - the Panamera.

"Are you thinking what Afzal Khan's thinking?" Quizzes the press release, and if you've been exposed to any of the great man's work the answer will likely be... yes, I am. The main changes being a bespoke Khan exterior and interior.

As we found out with Khan's Range Rover RS450, that's no bad thing. Exterior changes come in the form of lowered suspension, modified rear bumper, bullet side vents, sports exhaust and Khan RS-600 wheels.

The script continues inside, with a customised Khan Design leather interior featuring carbon and wood trimmings.

Major mechanicals remain the same as the standard 3.6-litre Panamera, which leaves Khan's claim to have taken the Panamera's performance to "a whole new dimension," a trifle unfounded.

Nonetheless, giving 295bhp, 295Ib.ft of torque and headline figures of 0-60mph in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 162mph, the standard car's no slouch.

The result is a Porsche Panamera that's more unique than an off-the-peg model and will cost significantly less than the range-topping Turbo S. Question is, would you rather have show than go?
