Westfield Sportscars Ltd is proud to announce the purchase of the Chesil Motor Company, manufacturer of the world-renowned Chesil Speedster.
The culmination of many months of work between the two businesses, Westfield hopes to combine their differing technology, skills and beauty, harnessing the Westfield brand and expanding their portfolio.
In introducing Chesil’s models to Westfield’s manufacturing techniques and innovations, they will seek to future proof the Chesil Speedster and keep it in production for many years to come.
With the expansion of Westfield Sportscars portfolio, which now includes autonomous PODs, their familiar range of kit cars, topped by the Sport 250, and now the Chesil Speedster, the company can offer total mobility solutions for commuting through to weekend thrills.
The long-term vision for the combined business is to provide the first fully electric car for the home build market and to design, build, manufacture and certify a retro electric Speedster to sit along side the existing Classic Speedster.
Chesil will fit under the Westfield Sportscars umbrella and will be managed by MD Simon Westwood. The vehicles and kits will continue to be built and supplied from both locations with the purchasing and supply function centralised at Westfield Sportscars in Kingswinford.
For the overseas market, vehicles will be built at Westfield under their existing Type Approval Framework.
Julian Turner, CEO of Westfield Technology Group said:
“We are really excited to have the Speedster under the Westfield Brand. We see the continued global growth of the Westfield collection providing a bespoke car to meet the individual needs of our customers. Westfield can now offer you a POD for your mobility needs in the week and car for fun for the weekend – all tailored around your bespoke requirements.”
The first chance to see the Chesil E Speedster will be at this weekend’s Silverstone Classic event stand P66 with first press drives expected in early September.
