My visit to Kahn Design was a disaster…

DSCN6387Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to work on plenty of exciting stories, and have met many high profile people from the automotive industry. Meeting Afzal Khan, the man behind Kahn Design, was the biggest disappointment of my career!

I had put in a lot of effort to go visit Kahn Design, travelled at my own expense, and made arrangements with one of their PR reps – who had been just wonderful to deal with. All was well, until I met Mr. Khan. He showed no appreciation for the work I had put in to get there, was mostly sarcastic and rude, and just wanted to brush me aside.

As a result of my interaction with Mr. Khan, I didn’t even want to do this story, but after a discussion with my editor, it was decided to do it anyway – since I had invested money on this assignment.

So, here is the >>>link<<< to the story, and as you’ll read, it’s true, the company’s very expensive, flagship SUV – the Flying Huntsman 6×6 – broke down after just 15 minutes!

So, if you’re looking for a unique, or special vehicle, and want quality engineering, don’t bother looking at Kahn Design, or any of their other brands, such as Project Kahn, and Chelsea Truck Co.

Visiting the home of Rolls-Royce

IMG_5988bBack in April, I was fortunate enough to visit the home of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, in UK.

This was a dream assignment, as I have always loved the cars wearing the ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ hood ornament.

However, reality is often not as good as your dream. Not the case here, my visit to Rolls-Royce was even better than I had imagined. Not only does the global headquarters of this prestigious automaker sit on a spectacular site, the buildings themselves are design masterpieces, and the people working there have a heart of gold – the nicest group I’ve ever come across.

For all the details, read the entire article, as published on >>>autofocus.ca<<<.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Callaway Corvette SC757 AeroWagen is THE car to get…

ca13I first read about Callaway Corvette’s back in 1987, and really fell in love with their speed and style.

ca18Hence, it was a great honour to not only get to drive their latest model – the 2017 Callaway Corvette SC757 AeroWagen – but to also meet up and spend time with the legendary Reeves Callaway (the founder of the company) and Dr. Paul Deutschman (the stylist behind these wonderful supercars).

The full story on the stunning Callaway AeroWagen – which thanks to its SC757 package, became the most powerful car I’ve ever driven – can be found through this >>>Autofocus.ca<<< link.

Hope everyone enjoys the article.

2017 Corvette Bash at the NCM – a great event with awesome cars

IMG_6094bIf you like the Chevrolet Corvette, then you should make a point to visit the National Corvette Museum (NCM) in Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA.

NCM holds plenty of Corvette-based events throughout the year, but the one to go to, is the Corvette Bash, presented by Michelin.

This year’s event also played host to a special exhibit of Callaway Corvette’s – which I think are the best, enhanced Corvette’s ever made.

A brief look at the Petersen Automotive Museum

eb110-1bIf you like cars, then going to the Petersen Automotive Museum is a must. I had been planning to go for a long time, but every time I was in Los Angeles, there was always something in my way to prevent me from going.

On my seventh trip to California, I pulled out all the stops, and finally made it to the Petersen. It was even better than I had ever imagined, and gave me the opportunity to see my childhood dream car in the flesh, the Bugatti EB110 SS (pictured above) – the Ferrari 250 GT SWB (pictured below) is not bad either!
