Matthew Hakim is a man who deals in cars and his clients are just not normal people. He has clients who are top stars playing the world’s most entertaining league – English Premier League.
And the biggest plus point of Matthew Hakim is that – he not only deals in fancy cars but he can upgrade your cars and make it look more classy and unique. So when Crystal Palace’s winger Wilfried Zaha decided that he wanted to install a custom roof in his Lamborghini Aventador – he has to go to one man – Matt Hakim at FERRAGHINI CUSTOMS.
FERRAGHINI CUSTOMS is Kent’s leading vehicle paint protection film and vehicle customisation centre. They have been transforming supercars and luxury cars for over 10 years and built a massive client base and trusted from all types of customers including celebrities, professional footballers, worldwide companies and public customers.
Zaha, who has a fleet of cars has been going to Hakim for years now. He was introduced to him through Eagles team-mate Conor Wickham.
Matt in an exclusive interview to SunSport said: “Wilf looked and thought this is quite boring – I want starlights in my roof. He rang me and said I’ve had a crazy thought, you think this could work? I want stars in the roof like the Rolls-Royce.”
“I said I don’t know, the roof is thin, I don’t know how we’re going to get a thousand fibre optic lights behind that. He just said ‘if you can do it, do it’. I thought this will be a one of one, the only Aventador in the world with starlights, we have to do this.'”
However, as Matt explains, it was a tough job – although he got it done in the end.
“We took the ceiling out, we had to refabricate it, it didn’t fit. It was near enough impossible,” he adds.
Another football player who is Matt’s client is Portuguese star Fonte. His Porsche Cayman GT4 is in for the Ferraghini paint protection film service. This GT4 has not only had complete paint protection film coverage to protect the car from stone chips and scratches, but it has also had an exterior and interior carbon fibre package installed.

Matthew Hakim is surely living a luxurious life as of now but it was never easy for him to make it so big.
“I dropped out of school, I had no education,” says Matt.
“I didn’t listen, I knew where I wanted to go at a young age and it just wasn’t relevant to me at the time. I wanted to get out there and make money, start a business and start to do something with my life.”
Matt started working with his brother as an electrician but his love for car helped him get a job at an Audi dealership in Essex, despite lack of education. This job helped him learn about business and helped him deal with the customers.
And after a couple of years hard work – he started his own business, where he started as a commission based salesman. He used to sell cars for other people rather than holding his own stock. His business didn’t have success in the initial year – but come the second year his business started seeing the upside. He used to even work 18 hours a day and his dedication and hard work helped him become so successful.
