An average family affair – NO – we are passionate about our products – the AK 427, AKSS and the AK40.
It all started in the mid 80’s when Ken (the ‘K’ in ‘AK’ also Jon’s Dad) decided to build a kit car. Never one to do things the easy way he spent 18 months making his own pattern and moulds, being unhappy with anything available quality wise then on the UK market. He along with a good friend Alan Frew (the ‘A’ in ‘AK’), who was in the fabricating business, then produced the Standard AK chassis. Although it started as a hobby, demand steadily grew until a decision had to be made whether to continue his existing glass fibre laminating business or go full time into kit manufacturing. Obviously the car had WON and AK Sportscars was born!!!
