English sports car manufacturers
The United Kingdom is among the leading specialist car manufacturers in the world. Some of the world’s most iconic brands hail from Britain and boast a strong brand heritage and enviable motorsport pedigree. These manufacturers produce an array of vehicles from high-class sports cars and luxury limousines to adapted vehicles and more.
Founded in 1913, Aston Martin has changed from a small-scale manufacturer of sports cars to one of the world’s most popular luxury brands. They have an impressive line-up, ranging from the luxury city car, the Cygnet, to the One-77 Supercar. Aston Martin DB5 is popular for being Bond’s favorite car – it first appeared in the third film in James Bond Series. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage and V12 Vanquish have also helped Bond chase the bad guys on screen.
Manufacturing vehicles since 1909, Morgan is among the oldest car manufacturers in the world. They manufacture handmade, coach-built sports cars, such as the Aero series, as well as the iconic Plus 4 and Plus 8. They have survived the competition by taking advantage of new technologies, demonstrated in their latest offering ‘the Plus E’, an electric car using a mix of lightweight aluminum chassis, a Zytek electric motor, and a familiar sports car design.
Founded in 1996, Radical did not take long to be the best in the world. They are now the second largest racecar manufacturers in the world. They manufacture sports cars that make use of superbike technology. They have recently introduced the SR3 SL, an aerodynamically advanced two-seat sports car that is approved for road use as well. It is equipped with a 300bhp Ford EcoBoost engine.
In addition, there are some other popular manufacturers with highly efficient sports cars. Lotus Elan manufactured by Lotus Cars is regarded as one of the best handling sports car of all time. TVR Griffith by TVR is known for being no-nonsense V8-powered roadster. And the list goes on.
