The last I heard about 2 years ago, they were owned by a South African Company and were producing a small number of cars out of a small unit just south of London. I visited the factory after leaving messages that we were over from the USA and would love to get a peek at the factory...Not a nice reception, they never returned any calls and flat refused to let us see anything when we showed up during business hours. Got a little look through a window and saw a guy hammering some aluminium on a buck. (Note the spelling of aluminium...we were in the UK!!!)
I believe these South Africans are in some way connected to Superformance.
For it to now be coming to CT makes me think it may have changed hands.

Good chance that a South African is still involved, as one of the new models will be called "Mamba" .... a very South African Snake and term. Used to describe something "wicked"... Wow that car is Mamba
