UNRIVALLED HIGH-PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING
WHAT DOES SPECIAL MEAN TO YOU?
The concept of a “Special Vehicle” can mean many things. What it almost certainly guarantees is a level of specification designed to stand out above and beyond a standard production vehicle in both performance and finish.
Elevating a vehicle to this special status requires meticulous attention to detail, a level of craftsmanship and performance that can be only be achieved through a bespoke approach.
With over 40 years experience in motorsport and special projects, Piper Special Vehicles is your personal connection to the world of high-performance engineering.
We give you access to this level of design and engineering and the opportunity to apply it to your own special vehicle.
No matter what ‘special’ means to you, the type of driver you are or the type of vehicle you wish to elevate, our mission is creating cars that, through our meticulous approach and standards for quality and performance, deliver an unrivalled driver experience – special on every level.
ABOUT JOHN PIPER
John Piper has been designing and developing championship winning special vehicles for over 30 years from F1 and Le Mans
sports cars, through to World Rally Cars, World Superbikes, Electric Hybrid Supercars and a World Land Speed winning vehicle.
OUR WORK – WHAT WE DO
Our standards for quality begin with the basics. Every vehicle passing through our workshop has to meet a fundamental level of quality before we focus on the work to make it truly stand out.
The use of modern materials, technologies and techniques enable us to produce vehicles with contemporary reliability and performance while maintaining the spirit of the original vehicle.
Improving the fundamental systems – ride and handling, braking, steering, cooling and electrics as well as, of course, engine performance and the transmission.
Bringing a vehicle back to life, reinvigorating it using today’s engineering means we can recreate any classic car making it better than when it originally rolled off the production line.
Quality of Assembly
Exterior and interior refinement is all about highly qualified craftsmanship – with everything down to the last nut and bolt carefully fitted by hand, to a level that surpasses both the original and contemporary standards.
Whether you drive your special vehicle once a month or once a day or whether it’s for racing or recreation, we can help take special care of your car with vehicle support and maintenance tailored to meet the specific needs of you and your vehicle.
We have the knowledge and the network to help you find the type of special vehicle you are looking for whether it’s a classic roadster, racing car or even a rally car.
While each and every vehicle we handle is a special vehicle, some of our finest examples are created as the result of close client consultation.
We can help you realise the car of your dreams or recreate that special vehicle from your past that got away – albeit with the improvements modern technology affords.
Below are a few examples of our proudest achievements. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss how we can help with your special vehicle.

''I’d like the car that I remember fondly. A car for fun and leisure. A fast, touring car, that we could take on trips.''
Borne out of a desire to recreate the car of his youth, we developed a specification for our client – advanced suspension and handling, supercharged engine, improved brake discs and calipers to match, electric power steering, modern 5-speed gearbox, updated electrics, heated front and rear screens, leather fully trimmed interior and uprated can-heater.
