I am Kiron Phillips, Porsche 981 GT4
I'm 25 years old and the founder of British vodka brand, RK Vodka.
My passion for cars started when my brother (and now business partner) took me to London to go and see all the supercars on Sloane Street. I instantly fell in love with the car scene and it became a goal of mine to get behind the wheel of something special. The car scene provides a fantastic hobby with events all over the country every weekend and a group of like minded people that come together from different backgrounds and places with one common passion, cars! I am members of loads of facebook groups and actively attend events hosted by Supercar Driver @supercardriver and Slammed UK @officialslammeduk.
Special thanks to Thats a wrap for the great work they do @thatsawrap_2020
My favourite events to attend are drives, it's a great way to have fun with friends and also explore some amazing places. I've done the North Coast 500 and Monaco twice, both amazing roads trips and highly recommended.
My current car is a 981 GT4 wrapped in our own RK VODKA livery, the car itself is stock and is most likely to remain that way. Some likely changes will be upgrading the infotainment system and potentially changing the alloys. I'd love to get some BBS wheels on the car one day! This is my third Porsche Cayman, I started with a 987.2 Cayman S and then moved on to a base model 718 Cayman.
The goal was always to get a GT4 one day and it really hasn't disappointed. The 981 GT4 is the first time Porsche put a 911 engine in a Cayman chassis, this combined with a manual gearbox makes for a truly engaging driving experience.
I am hoping this car will stay in my life forever if I am honest. The car was originally white before being wrapped by our good friends at Thats A Wrap. I always knew that I would brand the car up for our business so it was always going to be a black or a white GT4. The black and white wrap is the same design as our vodka bottles and the copper stripe running up the centre represents our copper pot distillery as well as being a nod of that hat to Porsche GT racing heritage.
I wanted the car to look very on brand for Porsche, so at a glance you would assume it's a Porsche race car and then when you look closely it's clearly a vodka brand. All of the sponsors featured on the car as brand partners of ours, people who we have worked with for a while now. I didn't want random names on the car, it was important the brands on the car helped paint the picture of who we are and what our brand is all about. I hope you like what we have done with the car and hopefully you will see it at some events soon.
