workshops, dyno cell, body shop, toolroom and car stores occupy
nearly 20,000 square feet (1,850 m2) of buildings on our
farm in rural Buckinghamshire. Set in the ideal environment to enjoy
vintage motoring with winding lanes and great pubs. This is also
the "silicone valley of the motor-racing industry" with
many Formula One teams and Silverstone nearby. We regularly have
20 bugattis on site undergoing restoration, our showroom holds,
parts, displays and Bugatti miscellany alongside Bugattis looking
for a new home.
Our workshop ethos essentially follows two distinct policies. Firstly,
we invest as necessary in patterns and tooling for high quality
new parts which exactly match the originals. These we make available
as raw castings or forgings, finish machined parts or as sub-assemblies.
Secondly, we keep abreast of developments in materials and manufacturing
processes which allow us to produce superior parts which do not
impact visually on the cars but significantly improve the longevity
and driveability of Bugatti cars of all models. Examples being modern
replacement paper element oil filters which fit inside the original
Bugatti filter body providing a major improvement in oil filtration
and an overdrive conversion for Type 43, 44, 49, 40 and 57 Bugattis.
This helps to compensate for the higher average speeds now achievable
using motorways without sacrificing flexibility on country lanes.
Sintered clutch conversions for most Bugatti models are also carried
out. Whilst not altering the original metal to metal concept, this
type of clutch requires very little maintenance and gives increased
durability, very suitable if the car is entered for competition.
