American Idol creator opts to leave ostentatious rides at home in favor of bespoke Smart car.
Pop music mogul Simon Cowell is usually spotted in his Rolls Royce or Bugatti Veyron around LA, but he was recently snapped rolling out of the CBS studios grinning from ear to ear in a Kahn Smart car, looking more camp than cramped. The Smart RSL Wheel by A. Khan Design exudes a sense of masculinity that Cowell so often lacks and although Kahn normally focuses on transforming standard cars into bespoke one-offs, smaller, more fuel-efficient cars such as the Smart are now being considered.
Owner Afzil Kahn said: "We have successfully steered products and services towards high end users for many years. However, we are confident; the Kahn Smart wheel and our range of smart components will delight our clients who desire distinctively styled Smart cars." UPDATE: After posting this, we were notified by a very satisfied customer from SMART MADNESS who kindly informed us it was this company that outfitted Mr. Cowell's car, not Kahn. According to their website, they are the largest in stock inventory of parts and accessories for Smart cars.
