Kallenhard was created by the directors of RPM Technik, the independent Porsche specialists, with the aim to provide a service that was second to none in the sales and funding of prestige and performance vehicles. The business is located in the South East of England, just 45 minutes by rail from London (Euston) and only 25 minutes from Junction 20 of the M25.
Kallenhard has the ability to service and sell a diverse range of performance marques, specialising in Audi, Aston Martin, BMW, Ferrari, Jaguar, Land Rover and Mercedes. Please visit our showroom page to review our current selection of stock. All our cars are comprehensively inspected and prepared to the highest standards for sale. We offer a comprehensive range of finance and funding options and a full range of warranties.
Our sales department is headed by Sales Manager Doug Browne. Doug has worked in the premium vehicle sector for over 12 years and is experienced with all aspects of the sales environment. Customer satisfaction is his number one priority, so get in touch to discuss your requirements, whether it is selling your existing car or sourcing your next car for the collection.
Doug has an exceptional understanding of the sports and performance car market. He has previously managed one of Bedfordshire’s largest and most respected used car specialists. His knowledge of values and specifications is encyclopedic and sourcing the ‘right’ car is a speciality. Doug has also held senior roles in prestigious main dealers and the motor finance sector.
Operations & Logistics Co-ordinator
Paul is an extremely valuable member of the Kallenhard team, having been recruited by Doug from their former Luton-based employers in early 2019. The dad-of-two from Houghton Regis has proved the ideal right-hand man to run the operational side of this rapidly-expanding prestige and performance outfit.
He mainly works behind the scenes, photographing the vehicles for the website, arranging preparation and directing the collection and delivery side of the business.
Among Paul’s many interests is go-carting, but he also has a penchant for classic US muscle cars, including Ford Mustangs and Dodge Challengers, and that unheralded UK rarity, the Lotus Carlton.
Greig has worked in the main dealer network for BMW, Audi and Porsche. From there he moved into the independent marketplace heading up the sales teams at RPM Technik and Kallenhard. Experienced at track days in both cars and on bikes in the UK and Europe, he has a passion for performance cars and motorsport.
Dan has extensive experience, having been employed at Nissan, Mini/BMW dealerships and elsewhere in the Bedford and Luton area. With the surname Bedford, he really can’t have been brought up and educated anywhere else!
But Dan was actually born in South Africa 24 years ago. His dad hails from Berkhamsted, and met his mum who had emigrated from what is now Zimbabwe.
Never one to hide his light under a bushel, Dan is also an accomplished musician (if you can describe a drummer as such!) and plays in no fewer than three local groups – “Diversion”, a punk/rock band; “Wenz Day”, a Green Day tribute act; and “Ashley Falls”, a pop/punk band who once supported “Scouting for Girls”.
Dean plays an important role at Kallenhard. His job is to clean and prepare the cars for photographing, forecourt show and ultimately for sale and delivery to customers. He came to us from a top-end sports and classic car dealership, specialising in Ferrari – a make which Kallenhard is increasingly involved in selling. Prior to that he worked as a test driver, no less, at the Millbrook proving ground near Ampthill.
Like Paul, he has a particular interest in American muscle cars from the 60s and 70s, and has owned three, including a Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang coupe, and a Pontiac Trans Am.
Dean, who spent his formative years in Australia, was employed by a private aviation company at Luton Airport for the best part of a decade, where he administered to many of the world’s rich and famous. The tales he can tell about the A-listers – including Michael Jackson, Madonna and Nichole Kidman, among others – are a reporter’s dream! Not that he ever would!
The latest recruit to the Kallenhard team is also the youngest. Eighteen-year-old Lewis Newton, who was educated and lives in Tring, has joined us as vehicle detailer two days a week.
He’s his own boss, with his own company LN Detailing, as he explained: “I’ve always wanted to control my future, and so was set on working for myself. Once I started driving, I instantly became interested in keeping my car looking the best it could, and so that eventually evolved into detailing and completing other people’s cars.”
He added: “I put everything into my work and treat every car like my own”. Sounds just like an advertising slogan. We couldn’t put it any better.
Ian is an ex-Fleet Street reporter and national TV and radio news editor who describes himself as an unreconstructed petrolhead. The Scot is also father-in-law to RPM and Kallenhard’s director Greig, so likes to think he always has the best interests of the company to heart as he checks, collects and delivers Kallenhard cars throughout the UK. “It’s a lot less stressful than putting out the news”, he quipped.
Ian, who lives in Wendover, also keeps a close eye on the various RPM/Kallenhard websites, and although not involved on a day-to-day basis, writes staff biographies and website blogs. Oh, and he’s a stickler for misplaced apostrophes!
