The most valuable vehicle in the world
10th Oct 2012
Meticulously and beautifully built, and able to deliver nearly 1200bhp not just easily but also reliably, the Bugatti Veyron is more complex and utterly entrancing than any other vehicle.
Taken care of in the climate-controlled showroom of A. Kahn Design, Afzal Kahn’s Bugatti Veyron is one of the most valuable vehicles in the world and it is plain to see why this is the case.
It’s hard to find examples of two characters being worth millions of pounds when it comes to cars, but Afzal Kahn doesn’t have to look far. His famous F1 number plate, affixed to the Bugatti is valued in the seven-figure range.
According to the number plate specialists at plate master, Afzal Kahn’s F1 number plate is easily the most valuable in the UK, and amongst the top in the world.
The legendary F1 number plate is now looked at as a great investment by Afzal Kahn, who originally purchased it for £465,000 and its value has only gone up since then. Recently, the BBC reported that an interested buyer offered Kahn £5,000,000 for the number plate, which he turned down.
In three years, the return rate on his investment is an astonishing 1,233 percent. And, judging by the latest offer, it doesn’t appear that Kahn will be selling his F1 number plate for anything short of an incredible offer.
And the principal British designer emphasises the monetary element of his automotive adventure, as well as explaining why he likes to drive to London behind the wheel of a Veyron.
“I believe that the Veyron is the ultimate car,” said Afzal Kahn.
“Taking into consideration the amount that VW spend on building every car, this is one of the best investments I have ever made.”
Afzal was on hand recently to take part in the Hill Climb event at this year’s Car Fest North and South Events. In the name of charity, he roared up the hill in the Bugatti Veyron alongside 7 Ferraris, vintage cars along with European and U.S supercars.
“With at least a third of the price of each ticket going to the charity, Car Fest was a great fun family related event and we all had a good time. I’m sure the relevant charities were pleased with the amount raised.”
