Learn more about Kallenhard
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 30 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 Director 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.
Meet the Kallenhard Team
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.
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 25 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".
When it comes to money matters at Kallenhard Performance Cars, our Henry has the finance ball firmly in his court.
The reason? The youthful 22-year-old has an accountancy qualification AND is a mad keen basketball player and fan.
Henry, from Hemel Hempstead, was recruited from a local accounting practice in 2019 and in his spare time is the official statistician for Hemel Storm, who play in Division 1 of the National Basketball League.
He played basketball for his school team, then Aylesbury and Berkhamsted. He now plays for Berkhamstead Bears in Division 1 of the Hertfordshire county league.
So it figures that Henry certainly appears to be a great asset for Doug and the rest of the growing Kallenhard team.
Kallenhard's growing success has meant that Doug has had to recruit a new member to the team. Welcome Charlie Ready, who comes via Milton Keynes and Gibraltar, where he was born to Scots parents in 1994, and where he lived for his first eight years.
Charlie, a keen mountain biker and golfer, previously worked in the motor trade in MK before joining Kallenhard. He's also managed a golf shop, and travelled and worked in Australia, which accounts for his love of surfing.
Charlie says he's always had a love for cars, so being able to spend all day in the showroom surrounded by Bentleys, Astons and other classics is like a dream come true!
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’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!
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.
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 Nicole Kidman, among others – are a reporter’s dream! Not that he ever would!
