Welcome to the home of the Barchetta 595s!
As some of you may know, This vehicle was designed and developed by Peter Stevens
( the designer of the McLaren F1 and the Lotus Elan amongst many! ).
A few years ago, after a long and extensive search....
We managed to obtain ALL of the original factory tooling for the Barchetta 595 body Via the Dove Company in Norfolk
where the original car was built.
The build was by no means easy! Based on the floorpan of a cut down fiat 126 it required a high level of skill to build a car from scratch and took several hundred man hours. Thus making the car a time consuming and difficult prospect.
Whilst the car was spirited it lacked power and refinement due to its mechanical base.
Well.... All of that is about to change with the rebirth and a ground up build...
From information we received, only 10 factory cars were ever built and 12 body shells were sold.
All of the factory cars made their way into private collections of certain individuals within the motoring industry.
Some of the bodies made their way into Europe where several attempts at cloning the car were made.
In some ways, we were dismayed at this news but after a period of reflection, we realised
(tongue in cheek) that imitation is probably the best form of flattery!
We can tell you however, it is not possible to obtain cloned bodies of any sort as the offending companies are no longer trading.
To this end, we devised a plan to protect the investment of future owners with a body microchip system on all new bodies produced. This will be standard on ALL cars built by BVD.
Similar to those grain of rice sized chips used to microchip your pet.
The main inner and outer body shell and all panels will have chips and can be read using a hand held device,
again, similar to a pet microchip reader.
The Barchetta 595s will be manufactured and registered brand new in limited numbers of 50 cars.
All vehicles will carry a build plaque in the cabin corresponding to the build and chassis number.
