Dowsetts Classic Cars
The Dowsetts Classic Car Company is a small British car company based in East Hertfordshire, founded by the TV personality and co "For The Love of Cars" presenter Ant Anstead, along with a team of guys all with a passion for classic cars.
The company designs and hand builds bespoke sports cars taking its inspiration from the evocative designs of the 1950’s and 1960’s British, sports road & racing cars, but harnesses these designs to modern engineering & drivetrain technology.
The work is carried out at its all-new and inclusive site in one purpose built facility. In addition the company also carries out high end classic car restorations and bespoke art and design work.
They have recently revealed their new project, the 6.2 litre Comet fixed-head coupé, for which they are now taking customer commissions.
Eadon Green, created by designer Felix Eaton, has one simple objective: "To design and produce the world’s most exclusive coach built cars". The company was originally to be called Eaton, but because of a trademark issue this was changed to Eadon. The Green part has been included because it's his maternal grandmother's maiden name, whose love of a particularly spectacular part of the Scottish Highlands resulted in the name for his first car design, the Black Cuillin.
This car, inspired by his love of the 1937 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900, will be joined by another design, the Zeclat, and both will be built in very limited nimbers to client's commissions at their premises near Holmfirth in Yorkshire. Eadon Green's designers and engineers work as a team in conjunction with outside experts, such as Curve Vehicle Design, Concept Group International and Envisage Group, Coventry, who all have many years of experience working with major car manufacturers. The company recently announced a new model, Zanturi, a four seat GT.
First delivery of cars is expected late 2019.
Eagle, or as they are better known Eagle E-Types, have been involved with the meticulous re-building and restoration of this iconic Jaguar for well over 26 years.The company was founded by Eagle's owner and managing director, Henry Pearman, who has had a life-long love affair with the Jaguar marque and the E-Type model in particular.
But what separates Henry and his long established team at Eagle from other specialists with a similar passion, is the Eagle E-Type. While, like some others, they successfully race, rally, develop upgrades and of course deal in their chosen car, they have gone a step further. Since 1991 Eagle has been re-manufacturing the E-Type to a modern day standard of quality that has resulted in Quentin Willson referring to it as "probably the best built handmade car in the world."
Eagle are now becoming equally well-known for their bespoke 'new' E-Types, the open top Speedster, the Spyder GT and the Low Drag GT coupé, which they build to order at their rural premises in Sussex.
Ecurie Ecosse (Team Scotland), one of the world’s best known private motor racing teams was founded in Edinburgh in November 1951 by the late David Murray and today continues under the present “Patron”, Hugh McCaig. It is now going to take on the exciting project to build just 25 examples of the fabulous LM69, a modern interpretation of Jaguar's XK13 Le Mans prototype developed by engineer Neville Swales.
Hugh McCaig has been involved in motor racing for the past twenty five years but was a motor racing enthusiast during his school days at Fettes College in Edinburgh. As head of the motoring club in the school he wrote a letter to David Murray of Ecurie Ecosse and asked if Murray would be prepared to bring the famous Ecosse transporter and cars. To his surprise Murray agreed and the sparkling dark blue D-type was unloaded from the Ecurie Ecosse transporter.
From then on Hugh McCaig followed the progress of Ecurie Ecosse. When the team was disbanded in 1972 Hugh little knew that around ten years later he would be able to reform the team and take the famous name on to greater success.
Since 1982, the team have become World Champions in Group C2 World Sports Car Championship, have been involved in the development and running of the factory Aston Martin AMR1 team. They have won the British Touring Car Championship for Vauxhall and have helped support some of Scotland’s most successful modern racing drivers including Allan McNish, David Coulthard, David Leslie, John Cleland and 2007 Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti.
So Ecurie Ecosse have been instrumental in the development of motor racing for the past fifty five years not only in Scotland but in Britain as a whole.
