OUR PROJECTS

LOTUS ESPIRIT GT3

The GT3 is one of the rarer versions of the Lotus’s iconic mid-engined Esprit, only 196 of which were produced between 1996 and 1999. This example was in a really bad way when it came to us, having been involved in a three-car accident that had resulted in severe damage on both sides and the front end. […]

ROLLS-ROYCE CORNICHE

The convertible Corniche was the pinnacle of the Silver Shadow range of cars, good examples of which are highly sought-after in today’s market. This particular one is an old friend of ours, which we have been steadily improving for its owner over several years now. The tasks completed to date include: […]

MERCEDES-BENZ 250 SL

The 2496cc (250) version of the immortal ‘Pagoda’ SL was only made for 12 months, so is the rarest of the much-hallowed breed. The example entrusted to us was a very nice, largely sound car, the interior of which had already been restored. Our job was to attend to the few areas of corrosion and repaint […]

PAGANI ZONDA

The Beaconsfield Workshop is the preferred bodyshop of Pagani UK, and it was for them that we treated this early Zonda to a complete respray. The paintwork was basically okay and only really suffering from the chips and cracks of general use. However, it was being sold and needed to be perfect, so we cut […]

ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD

This lovely Cloud III is one of only 54 examples to be graced with H J Mulliner Flying Spur bodywork. It belongs to a long-standing customer of ours, and originally only appeared to have suffered a few storage-related problems. But, as is so often the case with cars, there were many more issues hiding […]

BENTLEY R-TYPE

This was purchased by a local enthusiast and required a combination of body, interior trim and mechanical repairs, and road traffic updates. We removed corrosion from and repainted one of the front wings, improved and Connollised the interior, overhauled the braking system, and treated the Bentley to an overall service. We also worked with the […]

VUHL 05

A new name to you? It was to us when we were commissioned by the Mexican manufacturer to respray what was, at the time, the only one in Europe. Matching the mat silver finish that had been created on another continent wasn’t easy, but we managed it in double quick time. Speed and quality are […]

LANDROVER DEFENDER 90

Once the backbone of the military and farming community, the traditional Land Rover is now a cult vehicle and, with production ceased, greatly in demand by all manner of collectors. This recent low mileage example started life in silver but the customer wished it to be re-finished in black. We duly stripped it and gave […]

JAGUAR XK150

This lovely, mechanically sound ‘50s Jaguar came to us in need of considerable restoration. We carried out extensive repairs to the steel bodywork, blending in new metal as required before repainting the car in its original shade of deep maroon. This example of a much-loved British classic is now ready to provide years of enjoyment […]

Beaconsfield Workshop - Jaguar, Lotus, Rolls-Royce & Bentley Restoration Specialists

SILVER WRAITH

We established our reputation on the repair and restoration of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars and such jobs don’t come much bigger than this one. Built to the order of the eccentric Turkish-born playboy Nubar Gulbenkian, ‘ALW 11’ served as transport for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh’s 1956 visit to Nigeria before becoming the property […]

LOTUS ELISE

As one of only 12 UK bodyshops accredited with Lotus factory approval and boasting some 25 years’ experience of repairing fibreglass-bodied cars, it’s is rare for us to be without a Lotus or two in the workshop. This Elise had suffered a sizeable blow to the nearside front and required a replacement chassis. We therefore […]
