History Timeline

We are passionate about the cars we produce and we know this is a passion shared by our enthusiastic owners. All of our sports cars will continue to be hand-built and bespoke but using high technology processes in a very modern environment.

That ethos goes right back to 1914 and the very beginnings of our company. Our founders, Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford believed that a sports car should have a distinctive and individual character. They felt it should be built to the highest standards and be exhilarating to drive and own.

Many things have changed over the ensuing 93 years, but those goals are still very relevant to us today.
