Chevron Racing was originally founded by the late Derek Bennett in Salford in the 1960's. He is generally acknowledged to have been an engineering genius, as well as an accomplished racing driver, and was responsible for designing and building several legendary Chevron racing cars which enjoyed enormous success in many national and international race categories throughout the late 60's and 70's. Indeed, as many as six well known racing drivers who used Chevrons regularly went on to become F1™ world champions, including Nikki Lauda and Alain Prost.
Today 'the legend lives on' and the Chevron brand is now owned by WDK Motorsport, who are well-known in the world of classic racing car preparation. They build Continuation models of both the Chevron B8 and B16 and operate out of their premises in Stockbridge, Hampshire.
Founded in 1993, Classic Motor Cars Ltd (CMC) are proud of the fact that they are now recognised as one of the world's leading, if not the leading, restorer of classic Jaguars. Staffed by a highly experienced team of engineers and technicians they are based at their Bridgnorth, Shropshire workshops, which currently covers over 40,000 sq ft. They are able to provide their international clientele with a range of services from a simple oil change, performance and handling upgrades to full restorations and even bespoke car design and manufacture. They recently collaberated with Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, to create the Mark 2 By Callum, his personal interpretation of the Jaguar Mk2. They are now going to produce this very special car in limited numbers.
David Brown Automotive is a new car manufacturing company, founded by engineering entrepreneur and car enthusiast David Brown. He has no connection to the David Brown whose initials are so closely associated with Aston Martin, although both came from similar types of business background. The company plans to build a limited number of a handbuilt GT car to be called the Speedback GT, which is generally acknowledged to have a strong resemblance to the the iconic DB5, thereby emphasising the unusual coincidence between this David Brown and his namesake and their cars. The Speedback GT will be handcrafted to order by the specialist Envisage Group in Coventry, using a Jaguar XJR supplied rolling chassis and powerplant. Early in 2017, the company announced their second model, the Mini Remastered, a highly individual take on the classic Mini.

However, in 2008 the brand was revived by Albert Lam, former Group CEO of the Lotus Engineering Group and executive Director of Lotus Cars, with the vision to produce a range of premium-quality pure electric vehicles. In autumn 2015 production began of the first model, the SP:01 sports car, at their purpose-built facility in Leamington Spa.
