OFFICIAL A. KAHN DESIGN STATEMENT: Ant-Kahn â€“ The birth of a groundbreaking collaboration
10th Jul 2014
Ant-Kahn is a collaborative partnership between Afzal Kahn - innovative automotive fashion designer and founder of the Kahn group of companies, and Ant Anstead, founder of expert vehicle manufacturer Evanta, and star of Channel 4\'s \"For The Love of Cars\".
Working together under the Ant-Kahn banner, they will lead a resurgence in British specialist vehicle manufacture, with a number of projects already underway.
Their focus is on luxury and quality, using modern prototyping and manufacturing technology, while maintaining the attention to details associated with traditional coach building. Both the design and production centres are UK based, reflecting the dedication of the partners to building British industry.
“We are already working on exciting future plans that extend from coach-built special editions to series manufacture of motor vehicles, and you will see a number of models come to fruition in the coming weeks and months” explained Afzal Kahn.
Ant Anstead comments “Together, we are dedicated to continuing and building upon the historical excellence of British vehicle manufacture and the traditions of hand finished coach building are at the heart of the company\'s ethos.”
In the coming months, Ant-Kahn intends to release the ‘Flying Huntsman’, a new take on the classic Land Rover Defender.
This will be followed by the release of an Ant-Kahn original: a retro-styled barchetta, which is set to be unveiled at the Goodwood Revival motor show, and later this year a completely restyled Aston Martin WB12.
