From small beginnings in Coventry, England, engineer Neville Swales and his team have been quietly creating meticulously engineered cars. Their first completed car - a re-creation of the sublime 1966 Jaguar X J 13 Le-Mans Prototype - was a finalist in the 2016 International Historic Motoring Awards, standing shoulder-to-shoulder against such icons as the 1966 Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 and the 1956 Le Mans winning Ecurie Ecosse Jaguar D-Type.


Attention is now focussed on their "E-Type Re-Imagined" series of cars.


At the heart of each exclusive car is their own unique tera® "quad-cam" V12, inspired by the Ferrari, Jaguar, Tatra and Lamborghini V 12s that screamed around the Le Mans circuit throughout the 1960s.
