Silverstone, England (24th February 2022): David Brown Automotive has appointed Bespoke Imports Group LLC as its official partner and importer for the North America market.
The move comes at a time of rapidly accelerating demand for David Brown Automotive’s Mini Remastered and Speedback models in the USA and Canada.
With a base and showroom in Naples, Florida, and headed by British expat, Ryan Watson, Bespoke Imports is a leading distributor of premium and highly customisable British automobiles and serves the continent with its network throughout North America.
By engaging in this partnership, David Brown Automotive has laid down the foundations to grow its increasing international customer base in one of the world’s largest sports and enthusiast car markets, where there is a strong demand for David Brown Automotive’s iconic handcrafted British cars.
Michelle Gay, Sales & Marketing Director at David Brown Automotive, commented: “We are thrilled to formally extend our uniquely British, ultra-high-end product offering to North American customers, in partnership with Bespoke Imports, building upon our previous sales success in both the United States and Canada.
“Working together will enable us to formally deliver David Brown Automotive’s unique offering to North American customers; providing exclusive, bespoke motorcars, with unrivalled attention to detail, all underpinned by an impeccable service programme.”
Working with Bespoke Imports, David Brown Automotive will offer its wide-ranging customisation potential to clients, whether they opt for the iconic grand tourer, Speedback GT or their Mini Remastered models.
All David Brown Automotive vehicles are hand-crafted and constructed in accordance with the rich tradition of British coachbuilding at its state-of-the-art facility in the heart of motorsport valley, next to the renowned Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire, UK.
Ryan Watson, Bespoke Imports Group CEO, said: “Bespoke Imports was founded out of a belief that the North American markets should have the ability to appreciate and experience quality bespoke British and European small volume, niche and exotic automotive brands. Bespoke exists to offer partnerships to manufacturers and artisans from across Great Britain and Europe, who may not be physically able to build a physical presence themselves in these markets. We’re delighted to partner with David Brown Automotive, and to add such a world-renowned marque to the existing stable of outstanding car manufacturers we’re lucky to work with.
“David Brown Automotive and Bespoke Imports’ values are perfectly aligned; there is a shared commitment to offer an automotive outlet for a customer’s individuality, delivering a vehicle that encapsulates who they are.”
The first Mini Remastered models, including a Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition, have just landed in the USA and Bespoke welcomes enquiries to arrange viewings and test drives.
Michelle Gay concluded, “Global demand for David Brown Automotive products have exceeded all expectations recently and we are proud to take this move to grow our network further, cementing our brand’s position on the world stage.”
