Meeting the inspirational boss of Kahn Design

James Baggott and James Batchelor of Car Dealer magazine recently paid a visit to A.Kahn Design H.Q in Bradford and spoke to Afzal Kahn himself.

Here's what they had to say:

Set back from one of Bradford's busiest thoroughfares, Kahn Design sits among a seemingly endless assortment of car dealerships. But to mistake the building for a car dealership would not be doing justice to the work that takes place inside. Indeed, the outside does not reflect its automotive persuasions either; clad in blue panels with deep black windows, Kahn Design has an attitude which makes the Volvo dealership opposite look just a little ordinary.

"It's a laboratory," says the owner, Bradford born Afzal Kahn, in complete seriousness. "We are a laboratory that focuses on innovation and design - and that is what this business is all about."

Sitting in the dark grey office that he shares with his employees. Kahn is the mastermind of this slick operation. The business is a design house for wheels, interiors and cars - in fact, it is more than that; it is a tailor's shop where the most personalised cars can be clothed.

The business's roots date back more than 2o years with Kahn owning his own alloy wheel business selling fashionable aftermarket wheels. His design breakthrough came with the wheel named  RS-R in 1996 - now perceived to be a design classic.
