Business Summary:
Well known British Sports Car Manufacturer with Service, Restoration & Original Parts SupplyA British brand and Le Mans entrantRef. GN014Location : WiltshireAsking Price : O.I.R.O. £500,000This enduring business and automotive brand name was founded in the early 1960ís as a low volume motor car manufacturer and has had a typically British history, including changing company ownership, racing success, brand re-launches and popularity among enthusiastic niche buyers around the world; it is now part of the UKís sports car heritage.After many attempts to invest in new models and new brand awareness by new owners, the current version of the company was established by the vendor in 1999 to supply authentic parts to the community of owners around the world and to provide restoration and repair services for the brand.Later, the vendor acquired all moulds, jigs and drawings for the brand and intellectual property with the exception of the companyís registered trademark, which is understood to be due for renewal in 2022. There is currently no other brand or promotional activity seen to be engaged upon by other entities and a new model under the brand has not been launched since 2010.This opportunity includes an exclusive right for the manufacture & supply of authentic parts and spares, or indeed the production of whole vehicles. The company owns every drawing for every car produced, promotional imagery, moulds and jigs; the site also has full service and repair facilities; a paint facility is available off-site on an as-and-when basis. Original vehicles are often sought, restored and sold from the premises, in as-new condition.As well as this sports car marque specialism, the company by virtue of a commonality of engine use in the Rover V8, supplies new parts, spares and provides service and repair services for Land Rover cars. These two areas of business are well integrated in the one company.After many years of ambitious imaginings, magazine articles, TV appearances and speculation about the future, the business and brand has benefitted from the vendorís down to earth and methodological approach to the fundamentals of the business and a concentration on meeting the current demand from customers and owners seeking expert servicing, parts, repair or restoration and the business is now on a firm financial footing; profitable, with a positive financial outlook for the company, a future that is limited only by a new ownerís desire to grow the brand.The business benefits from its direct and historical relationship with such a well developed brand, which is a great asset but is nevertheless not performing at its maximum potential. All operations are streamlined with low overheads.

Facilities / Terms of Lease: The business operates from secure office and workshop premises on a discrete, rural location, in a building, of circa 3,000 square feet to include: office area, workshop, mezzanine, storage and kitchen & toilet facilities.

The premises are currently leasehold with an informal arrangement regarding duration and rent reviews. Annual rent and rates are circa £13,000 per annum.  
   
Potential Growth/Expansion: The business operates very much within the scope of the vendorís self-imposed limits and could grow rapidly by expanding the brand by means of a determined investment in marketing, advertising, sponsorship and typical brand building techniques. With this commitment it would then be possible to extend the range of branded products and include merchandising opportunities and product development.
