Behind the scenes: A. Kahn Design
5th Oct 2011
Given that Kahn\'s array of products, from lifestyle to automotive - are seen in the most glamorous locations around the globe, it is no surprise that Afzal Kahn is the automotive designer of choice for the rich and famous.
Here at A. Kahn Design traditional British marques - Jaguar, Rolls Royce, Bentley and Land Rover to mention a few - collide head-on with automotive styling and fashion designer label philosophy with spectacular results.
Blended with the strapline: \'the road is my catwalk\', Afzal Kahn is considered one of England\'s most pioneering and successful entrepreneurs and his company is one of only a select few remaining automotive brands in the UK.
The flamboyant head man owns two Bugatti Veyrons, one of which is arguably the most valuable Bugatti in the world; carrying the prestigious F1 number plate, possibly the most expensive number plate in the world.
However, products such as the Kahn Vesuvius Range Rover and the Kahn jeep illustrate just how unique the brand is: Kahn vehicles are for the individual who will not submit to a life of uniformity and who will only accept perfection. Dedicated to the creation of luxury bespoke vehicles, the company redesigns the ordered monotony of mass produced vehicles and rebuilds them into individually tailored creations.
Afzal Kahn cites the company philosophy as the explanatory factor to his success: “We are a design house. Customers want a unique design. It\'s about creating something unique for individuals who prefer the finer things in life.
“We\'re going forward as an English brand and receiving a great deal of acclaim in the process. Unlike other companies, we are constantly investing in British Industry, is there any other brand like us? No!”
The Kahn dream is as much about designer label exclusivity as it is a love of cars. And, while this might not rest easily with petrol heads, in business terms it makes perfect sense.
A great deal of dealers including Lotus and Audi to name but a few, find that their customers ask for the Afzal Kahn touch for their vehicles.
And as the Kahn design team continue to work under the tutelage of Afzal Kahn, a healthy atmosphere of stability and nonchalance is in the air, even during these difficult times.
And let there be no doubt at all, British success stories like this are there to be celebrated. So take a look at the pictures below. However, if you come across a Kahn vehicle, take a closer look and prepare to be enthralled!
