For the same price as the forthcoming M3W. Just saying.

Very nice. Shades of Ginetta from the front, and Alpine from the rear,

That's a nice looking little car, seems to be a competitive package will I look forward to seeing one in the flesh.

That's nice and with those doors there is a good chance it will share at least one trait with Morgan too innocent
I hope they do well with it grin2

Good luck too 'em, but they need to be careful with claims like "a 100% British supply chain" I'm afraid in this day and age fully certified & traced back that is impossible

I saw it in one of the car mags, I have to say it is remarkable and great work.

As a happily registered (ex) Aberdonian it is not often I say this but they can probably increase the price a bit and it will remain good value.

You have to ask where this puts the likes of TVR and several others at this moment.


Just time to rent a thimble more petrol before dinner.

The Elise is dead, long live the Elise, or perhaps I should say a civilised Ginetta. Looks superb and a relatively simple spec., but like many of these start-ups, will it survive? I hope so.

This is what the FT says about it:

Creator Robin Wells has focused on producing the ultimate expression of the two-seater British sports car with a postwar feel (think Jaguar D-Type crossed with Ferrari Dino, but in a package the size of a Mazda MX-5) but totally modern spec, including a 200-litre boot. What’s extraordinary is the car’s accessibility, with a launch price of £45,000-£50,000. It’s exclusive because Wells will produce no more than 25 cars a year, not by virtue of price. At that level we’re not talking about hand-cast V12 engines but a humbler four-cylinder Ford unit that sits transversely mounted just behind the driver, separated only by a “pane” of double-glazed glass. The design of the car flows from nose to tail, Wells himself having trained as a musician and likening the car to a visual symphony, going so far as to design the gear knob, carved from African rosewood, to resemble a conductor’s baton.

The outcome of five years’ hard graft working with Robin Hall of Hall Engineering and Design, who was involved in the creation of the BMW Mini, the car is now available to test-drive in Warwickshire while a new, environmentally friendly assembly facility is being built on a nearby farm.

A successful businessman and a self-described petrolhead, Wells built kit cars as a teenager and has his own collection of supercars. He’s been able to self-fund the venture entirely (“No one in their right mind goes into low-volume sports-car manufacturing,” he jokes) and hopes that with the Wells Vertige he has created a vehicle that is not just “a car for life”, but will live on as a classic.
