P50 Cars

The original Peel Engineering Company was based on the Isle of Man, and was a well-known manufacturer of the Peel P50 and Trident three wheel microcars in the early 1960s. The P50 is still listed in the Guiness Book of Records as the World's Smallest Production Car. It achieved fame more recently when Jeremy Clarkson drove one around the BBC Television Centre during an edition of Top Gear! (see Video Library)

A few years ago the company was aquired by car enthusiast and businessman Gary Hillman and his partner Faizal Khan, who started making re-engineered versions of both the P50 and Trident in various versions. In 2010 they and the cars appeared on the Dragons' Den TV show and won investment from James Caan, which has enabled them to produce more of the cars and to develop a range of retail merchandise to capitalise on the cars' popularity around the world.  

Both the Peel P50 and Trident are now offered in a range of models and specifications, either as a self-build project or factory-built, and are built in the company's London premises.

Pembleton Motor Company
T24 V-Sport

The Pembleton Motor Company was established in 1999 by ex national hillclimb champion and designer Phil Gregory, in order to build a three-wheeler heritage sports car which echoed the classic 1920s cycle car. Initially these Morgan-inspired 3-wheelers were offered in kit form only, but in late 2015 the company started marketing factory-built cars called the V-Sport. Towards the end of 2020 they announced a new model addition, the T24, a light four-wheeled cycle car.

Phil's son Guy joined his father in the business and the cars are built at Pembleton's premises at Bayton near Kidderminster in Worcestershire.

Established in 1985, over the 34 year period Pilgrim Motorsports have produced in excess of 15,000 cars, galvanising their position as one of the largest ‘Low volume car manufacturers’ in the UK. At its height Pilgrim was producing ten kits a week as well as building turnkey cars at the factory. 

Along the way Pilgrim has also built other cars/kits which have included The Bulldog, Family Tourer, Haldane, Jeepster, Hawthorn, Minotaur, Martini and of course the ever famous AC Cobra replica. They are also specialists in classic American muscle cars under the separate name of Muscle Car UK.

Their factory, based near Brighton, is 16500 sq ft with a sales area of 14,000sq ft. Pilgrim Motorsports currently build replicas of the iconic AC Cobra and the Porsche Speedster 356, which can be bought in the UK and EU in either RHD or LHD spec.
