View From The Press: LRM Has A Chat With Coachbuilder Afzal Kahn And Samples His Latest Offerings
15th Feb 2018

As the editor of a Land Rover magazine, Patrick Cruywagen’s visits to  Yorkshire, normally include a stop at, the coachbuilder and the proud  British Defender fan, Afzal Kahn of Kahn Design.

In the March  2018 issue of Land Rover Monthly Magazine, Patrick Cruywagen reviews the  Chelsea Truck Company Land Rover Defender 110 Double Cab Pick Up  Chelsea Wide Track along with the Range Rover Evoque X-Lander Edition.

Read on to find out more about Patrick’s visit.

There  is a also a Jeep Wrangler that has been transformed into the Black Hawk  Edition by As we take a stroll around his large Bradford HQ, we see a  Mercedes-Benz G Class G350 BlueTEC G6 that has been given a wide body  kit and complete styling overhaul.

There is a also a Jeep  Wrangler that has been transformed into the Black Hawk Edition by the  Chelsea Truck Company, one of several companies within Kahn Design. It  is the kind of vehicle you would expect a no nonsense individual to  drive.

There are also Ferraris and Aston Martins knocking  about, but before I get too carried away, I remind myself that we are  here today to see Land Rovers.

After our second cup of coffee we are allowed to enter the Kahn inner sanctum.

He  would not be out of place welcoming us to one of his London based  showrooms on the Kings Road in Chelsea and on Kensigton High Street,  which of late has become a haven for connoisseurs of automotive couture.

Instead  we find ourselves at Kahn H.Q, talking Land Rovers. I know which one I  prefer as I do feel a tad underdressed in my Vans sneakers. They were Christmas present from my wife.

“It’s a hobby for me. Car  manufacturers need to do facelift models every year or so, we don’t have  that problem, we just improve them. We view ourselves as game changers  and trend setters. If it was not for my wild and out-there ideas at the  Geneva Motor Show a couple of years ago, then there would not be a  top-end Defender market left. I will always produce them and will take  the Defender to my grave with me.”

As the owner of a  fairly standard Defender and obviously a big Defender fan, I find it  incredible how something that is no longer produced is still able to  spawn such an emotive following and very active market.
