  • Kahn Aston Martin DB9 Volante: License to review

    Afzal Kahn insists the Aston Martin DB9 was not designed to be a boy's toy. It was designed, says the principal British designer, “to be comfortable, elegant and a powerful long-distance vehicle.”


    And Kahnnews.com has been lured into reviewing this enchanting vehicle: no doubt 007 himself would approve of both the vehicle and unique number plate attached!


    As eye-catching today as when it was launched way back in 2004, the Aston Martin DB9 matches the emotion of a Ferrari, adds practicality and offers an experience unmatched for versatility and all-round appeal...

  • Aston Martin with a K

    As Afzal Kahn rekindles his affair with a bold new Aston Martin: Kahn News.com takes this very welcome opportunity to review the Kahn Rapide!


    It takes a lot of guts as well as a lot of money to embrace this Anglo-Italian supercar. If you are indeed rich enough, then you are rich enough.


    An asking price of around £150,000 is not an issue for such an extrovert Kahn Aston Martin Rapide. More than a mere car, it’s a precious and rare commodity; if you have to be plucky enough to buy it, surely you’d have to be mad enough to drive the socks of it?


    Not at all...

  • The name's Kahn, 007 Afzal Kahn

    Suave, debonair; the Kahn Aston Martin Rapide would appear to be the perfect foil for James Bond. Sporting Kahn 21” RSX-F wheels in a platinum silver finish and onyx black paintwork, this vehicle would not look out of place with 007 himself at the helm.


    For better or worse we live in the age of the superhero, and the 00 77 number plate affixed to the Rapide will ensure you will also have the chance to indulge in the world of international espionage.


    Afzal Kahn says the Kahn Rapide was not designed to be a boy's toy but instead is a comfortable, elegant and a powerful long-distance cruiser and as such is pure joy for motoring buffs...

  • Mission Impossible ?

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take the unsightly Aston Martin Cygnet and make it look beautiful. Yes, most would consider this to be Mission Impossible and probably something that even 007 himself would be hesitant to take on.


    However, Afzal Kahn insists the road is his catwalk and true to his mantra, the iconic British designer accepted the challenge and vowed to "transform this baby Aston Martin Cygnet to something more refined".


    And in his quest for Kahn coolness – the design wizard, true to his promise - went on to create a super mini worthy of the Aston Martin badge – courtesy of a metallic imperial blue finish coupled with a Kahn lowering module, blue metallic bonnet louvres and brake calipers finished in heat resistant blue paint, ensuring the vehicle oozes true Aston Martin DNA...

  • An alluring combination

    One would be forgiven for falling head over heels with the spectacle that is the Kahn Aston Martin Vantage: a seductive mix of style and invigorating performance.


    Afzal Kahn has found much success as an international style icon. His renditions of all things automotive have garnered much acclaim thanks to a penchant for an exhilarating blend of bespoke design.


    Of course on smooth roads all is well: conveying the fundamental nature of the vehicle’s identity the 10X21” and 9x21” Kahn RS-XF, 11x20 and 9x20 RSV and 10x21 and 9x21 hyper silver Monza wheels sit perfectly on the Ferrari FF...

  • A. Kahn Design introduces the Aston Martin Rapide 4 Door

    London – July 2011 – Dubbed the most elegant four-door sports car in the world, the Kahn Aston Martin Rapide is incredibly civilised, but tremendously capable.

    And in the metal the Kahn Rapide does not disappoint. The fundamental proportions are breathtakingly elegant.


    When people see this car they tend to smile and point towards the exceptional styling package, consisting of a front bumper grille mesh in matte black, bonnet vents in billet, black brake calipers, side vent grilles in matte black, sports exhaust and privacy glass...

    Afzal Kahn has undertaken many a unconventional project, but for those who think the British designer faced the ultimate challenge of building a supermini worthy of the Aston Martin badge: Afzal, true to his promise to "transform this baby Aston Martin Cygnet to something more refined," has delivered the goods with such vigour and style – this vehicle is now bubbling with true Aston Martin DNA.

  • Choose Your Own Registration Plate: 1967 AM

    What could be better than driving an Aston Martin DB6 with a personal number plate that matches the car?

    Not only does the 1967 AM registration look rather special on this 1967 model Aston Martin DB6, you will be the envy of your friends and neighbours!

    The culmination of Aston Martin's long-running line of DB six-cylinder sports saloons, thus considered by many to be the last 'real' Aston, the DB6 abandoned the Superleggera body structure of its predecessors in favour of a conventional steel composition.

    Increased rear-seat space was the prime DB6 objective so the wheelbase was now 4'' longer than before, resulting in an extensive restyle with more-raked windscreen, raised roofline and reshaped rear quarter windows...

  • Pick of the Showroom: 1967 Aston Martin DB6

    Representing the culmination of Aston Martin’s DB series of 6 cylinder sports saloons, the DB6 is recognised by many enthusiasts as the last of the “real” Aston Martins...

  • View From The Press: Kahn Vengeance has Aston Martin's blessing

    Noah Joseph of Autoblog raised a valid question in a recent article.

    If Aston Martin quashed a similar venture by Henrik Fisker, wouldn't the Kahn Vengeance suffer a similar fate? 
     
    Not according to Kahn. In a statement released to the press, company spokesman Mo Bhana said: "Unlike the David Brown Speedback GT and recent Fisker Thunderbolt that ended in a lawsuit, there are no copyright issues with the Vengeance since Aston Martin has confirmed they have entered into a supply deal with us."

    Noah went on to contact Aston Martin spokesman Kevin Watters, who replied to Autoblog's inquiry with the following statement: "I can confirm that Aston Martin has entered into a supply agreement with Kahn Design and will supply a very limited number of DB9s for an extensive coachbuild conversion...
