Welcome to britishbuiltcars.co.uk - the only website to list, in detail, not just every known car, van and motorbike, but other specialist vehicles, currently* made in the UK!
Although cars make up the vast majority of listings, the site now contains details on motorbikes, go-karts and specialist vehicles, including some military ones. Also one van! We are now embarking on the next phase of our expansion by including commercial transport, starting with Buses, the eventual aim being to create the 'Top Gear Mall Effect'.
Our Video Library contains 321 searchable videos and the site also features links to 85 car/motorbike/van reviews by the leading motoring press.
The website contains over 90 manufacturers, making more than 200 different models, from large volume producers to small companies building just a handful of vehicles a year. Each listing contains a direct link to the manufacturer. Thank you for visiting our website.
*Some models may be in a pre-production stage, with a register of interest and/or orders being taken.
We are currently seeking a number of Supporters for our website to enable us to improve, enlarge and more widely promote it, in order to help the vital UK vehicle industry over the next few uncertain years.
Check out the companies who are currently helping us, on the dedicated Supporters page.

- Nick Faure took a new C-Type on a challenging 170km route including 3 international calibre rally stages on the island of Mallorca. Nick Faure has had an illustrious racing career in historic competition Jaguars including a C-Type in the 1960s owned by Martin Morris and an ex-works lightweight C-Type (Moss-Whitehead) with the rear rib in the 1970s historic scene.
- The Lancia Stratos was a supercar like no other, but with just 492 built, values are vast. So what if you could get then Stratos look, sound and pace for £30k? Step forward Lister Bell STR kit car. If there's one kit car capable of leaving us besotted, it's the Lister Bell STR, a newly developed Lancia Stratos replica that is exquisitely put together. The appearance is bang on, the attention to detail is superb...and the driving position is better than the original's. Power comes from a 2.5-litre Alfa Romeo V6, which makes the right noises and, with about 190bhp, the right amount of shove. It steers and handles really sweetly, too. That you could put a lovely one together yourself for less than £30,000, or have a turn-key car for not much over £40,000, sent a lot of Autocar staffers away to examine their finances.
- Published 29h March 2020 The global electric vehicle market has never been bigger, but battery powered cars are often criticised for being more expensive than their internal combustion counterparts. So we're looking into a possible solution - used EVs! The BMW I3, Renault Zoe and Nissan Leaf can now all be picked up for a fraction of their original retail prices. So we took a look at a trio of 3 year old examples to see how they compare, as well as how their batteries seem to be holding up after a few years of use. We're on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/lovecarsTV It’s fantastic to see so many supportive comments for our videos but, with the quality we like to produce, they are extremely expensive to make so it would be great if you could head to Patreon to see what we can offer you, in return for you helping us make a lot more! Lots more on https://lovecars.com Special thanks to Drive Green who loaned us the cars for the day, more information can be found at https://www.drive-green.co.uk Likewise a huge thank you to https://www.stoneaston.co.uk for letting us use their beautiful venue.
