THE OLDEST SPORTS CAR DEALER

Allon White Sports Cars of Cranfield, Bedfordshire was established in 1918 and still operates from its original High Street site to this day. It was created just eight years after Morgan, for whom it has been a dealer since 1966, and preceded Lotus by 34 years, the products of whom it also specialises in.

Allon White Cars

A truly multifaceted company, it has a first class trim shop too in which, for example, the interiors of the ultra-modern Hennessey Venom GTs have been created and those of coveted classics are regularly restored to their former glory. Offering everything from laptop engine tuning to carpentry and panel beating, Allon White Sports Cars is effectively a unique blend of contemporary car dealership and village garage.

Servicing

The highly trained staff are as adept at dealing with the sophisticated BMW drivetrains of a Morgan AeroMax as the tweaked Ford Cortina mechanicals of an original Lotus Elan. The workshop equipment is bang up-to-date and the pricing transparent and competitive.

 

Sales

One of the most successful of all Morgan dealers, Allon White Sports Cars always has the latest demonstrators to hand - eg the limited edition +4 SuperSports and 3-Wheeler. The company’s used car stock ranges from Morgans of all types to contemporary and classic Lotuses, and such universal favourites as the Caterham Seven. For those looking for short-term, wind-in-the-hair motoring, there is also always a selection of Morgans for hire.

Added value

Always eager to provide the fullest possible service to its customers, Allon White Sports Cars organises a ‘breakfast club’ on the first Saturday of each month, driver training for those looking to get optimum enjoyment from their pride and joy, and track days for those looking to further explore the limits of both their car and themselves.

Upgrades

Though not involved in motorsport, the company is well versed in helping customers extract more performance from their road cars and offers a range of engine, suspension etc upgrades – especially for Morgan and Lotus models.

Trimming

The world class trim shop is headed by Aston Martin-trained Shaun McGuire. The dedicated staff are as comfortable handling such new-car contracts as the Hennessey Venom GT and F1-style Lotus T125 (the company is the appointed trimmer for Lotus Cars) as they are classic Aston Martins for renowned marque specialist Ecurie Bertelli. Such is the loyalty of the trim shop customers, that one Lotus collector regularly sends his cars from Scotland and a Bristol owner ventured all the way from France in order to obtain the quality of re-trim he felt only Allon White Sports Cars could provide.

Said the company’s Managing Director John Bellenger: “We are very proud of the unusual breadth of our offering. Our customers love their cars and need a garage that thinks the way they do. We are that company.”
