Happy New Year! CarFinders: The History

Posted on January 5, 2012

Initially when I began Car Finders, it started out as an importer of American cars, which in truth was my love. I loved American muscle cars, the 1967 Shelby GT 500, as seen in Gone in Sixty Seconds, was the ultimate car, I coveted it. Still to this day, I love that car and hope one day to own one, I have played with a number ¬†of replica’s and sold several ’66, ’67 and ’68 Fastback’s, but none come close to the original.

When I started out early on, many years ago, Classic Driver did an automotive piece on us, which you can read below.

However, our business changed a little bit, we still specialise in the ‘hard to find’ but we have expanded into the more general markets. For example, last year we sold a large number of Porsche models, including Cayenne and Panamera, but also including the very rare GT2 RS, of which only a handful were delivered in the UK and TWO Porsche Speedsters. We are also lucky to have a Porsche GT3 4.0L for sale now and have an order for the highly anticipated 918 Spyder.

In the beginning of 2008, I sold one of the 5 Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang’s directly from the Bugatti factory, which we have since visited a number of times and I personally spent a lot of the year in Monaco, where CarFinders could do its work among the glamour of Monte-Carlo.

In 2010 CarFinders was asked to base itself in the Bob Forstner showroom on Park Lane, the Pagani, Koenigsegg and Spyker UK dealer at the time. It was a symbiotic relationship, our service was a perfect add on to the clients.

Over the years, our services and our ability have been tested, we have provided Chauffeur driven luxury for heads of states, including the drivers. Delivered a car with a big red bow on for a Billionaire’s birthday present, with very little notice. Organised bespoke travel and comprehensive insurance for a group of 10 cars for a private individuals European family holiday, with drivers, staff and servicing.

We specialise in finding the perfect car for you at a price, or timescale, which normally you could not achieve in your local dealership, but we can also do a lot more!!

We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you have a prosperous New Year!
