Event: Project Kahn Visit
August’s main outing for our group is a drive out and meeting at Project Kahn based in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
Project Kahn has been around for years and primarily turns very special cars in extra special cars with mod’s including bodywork, wheels, interiors and of course engine and power hikes.
We were invited to the showroom to meet the staff and see what they can do. Inside, the main showroom is actually upstairs and is like a car-candy sweet shop for the motoring nut. An array of Range Rovers, Ferrari’s and Porsche’s are on display. Taking proud of place at the front of the showroom is a gleaming white Bugatti Veyron. A very special car indeed, with the rear spoilers proudly erected to almost lofty heights, the curves of the bodywork seem to shrink the car, looking relatively small in its demeanor.
An Orange and Black Range Rover Cosworth is in the centre of the showroom which is a great talking point. Hmmmmm….Cosworth. If bling is your thing, Kahn undoubtedly has something of interest to you!
The drive to Kahn has brought a lot of great cars out today. We’ve got numerous Ferrari’s and Porsches and we’ve also got a couple of Lamborghini’s; a black Gallardo and a yellow Murcielago with a street presence to match is formidable status. The car looks huge and bonkers.
The drive to Kahn is a wet one, coupled with a dose of finest motorway roadworks ensures that speeds are kept to a minimum and the group bunched together on the motorway. Brightly coloured cars painting the dreary wet landscape and keeping the drivers of some of the more slippery metal in maximum concentration mode.
Rain or shine isn’t going to spoil a good outing for our convertible posse though – indeed, the classic Jaguar team don’t have much of a choice – they didn’t have roofs in those days, so cap-and-goggles it is!
A great turnout and morning was had at the Kahn showrooms. The highlight had to be the Veyron – one of two that usually live in the very special showroom!
