Afzal Kahn and Ant Anstead team up for unique Defender and retro-styled Barchetta

Afzal Kahn is known for his F1 number plate and the Kahn Design that tweaks different luxury cars. Kahn is now teaming up with Ant Anstead, founder of Evanta and star of Channel 4’s “For The Love of Cars” to create new bespoke cars under a Ant-Kahn name.

The company will focus on luxury and quality, with modern prototyping and manufacturing technology, while maintaining the attention to details associated with traditional coach building.

“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.”

Their first project will be revealed in the coming months and is called ‘Flying Huntsman’ and is based on the classic Land Rover Defender, using a 550 horsepower 6.2-litre GM LS3 V8 linked to a push-button six-speed automatic transmission.

The Flying Huntsman will be followed by a retro-styled Barchetta with a 450 hp LS3 V8, which is set to be unveiled at the Goodwood Revival motor show in September, and later this year they will unveil a bespoke Aston Martin WB12.
